Columbus Unified High School: Every Adult Advocates, Every Student Graduates
Principal Leadership, v11 n9 p34-39 May 2011
This article features Columbus Unified High School, a school that takes pride in knowing that each student will graduate prepared for his or her future. Although poverty (45%) and unemployment (25%) are widespread in this rural Kansas community, the community members are fierce in their loyalty to the school. Last year, 97.8% of the four-year cohort of students--including special education students, who compose 12% of the enrollment--graduated. When asked to explain how his experience, knowledge, and skills affected the success of the school, Principal Steve Jameson began by talking about his longevity. Moreover, members of the leadership team at Columbus Unified focus on providing safety nets so that all students have the skills they need to graduate from high school.
