Academic excellence at North Columbus Elementary
School is founded on a partnership between the students,
teachers, and parents. As a community of learners, we work
to ensure the intellectual, ethical, physical, social and
emotional growth of each student.
The Faculty/Staff of
NCES strive to meet the unique developmental needs of
elementary aged children in a positive school climate.
North Columbus Elementary is a great place for students to
learn. Students are understood, challenged and cared for. We
are committed to ensuring that students achieve their
academic and personal potential. Students are encouraged to
demonstrate a passion for learning in a nurturing
environment where unique talents and backgrounds of
individuals are valued and respected.
