Columbia Heights is your hometown high school. We are extremely proud of our excellence, heritage and 21st-Century approach to learning, but most of all, our more than 800 diverse students in grades 9-12.
Columbia Heights High School is a comprehensive, public, four-year high school. It is located northeast of the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area and is part of the Independent School District #13. Current enrollment is approximately 950. In addition to being a culturally diverse school represented by multiple ethnicities, it also serves a high LEP (Limited English Proficient) population.
To help students on their path, our teachers create relationships while helping students develop lifelong learning skills for college and career readiness. As a Hylander, you will have opportunities to experience success in academics, athletics and activities that may not be available elsewhere including AVID, College Possible, GenesysWorks and more. These programs offer valuable experience through internships, life skills, college test prep and opportunities for post-secondary education - they also help us build college and career-ready graduates.
In 2016, Columbia Heights High School earned a spot on the College Board's AP Honor Roll and the District was named the "AP Small District of the Year." In 2017, Columbia Heights High School earned a Silver Medal and ranked 55 out of 769 high schools in Minnesota by the U.S. News and World Report's Best High School Rankings.
We would love to share more about our school with you and invite you to enroll your student in our school.
We are proud to be Hylanders and know you will be too!
