Our District serves the communities of Columbia Heights, South Fridley and Hilltop, Minnesota. We are located directly north of Minneapolis, also neighboring the communities of Fridley, St. Anthony and New Brighton. We are a small diverse District, with five schools and approximately 3,100 K-12 learners, yet Columbia Heights Public Schools is focused on the big picture of creating College and Career-Ready Graduates for every student in our schools.
