Our mission statement:
West Columbus High School -- where students learn in today's world and lead in tomorrow's society.
Our school's vision:
West Columbus High School will be a school of excellence where students are prepared for life-long learning, productive work, healthy living, and responsible citizenship in a global society.
West Columbus High School's Beliefs:
Teachers and students should be actively involved in the learning process.
All students should have equal access to learning opportunities.
Teaching and administrative practices should create a climate where students are motivated to learn the curriculum.
Parental and community involvement is essential to the improvement of schools and the educational process of students.
Each student is valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional, and intellectual needs.
Student self discipline is essential for optimal teaching and learning to occur.
A safe and supportive learning environment promotes student achievement.
Students need to develop not only a deep understanding of essential knowledge and skills, but also need to develop the capacity to apply their learning, and to reason, solve problems, and produce quality work.
The success of our school system depends on the commitment of all staff (administrators, teachers, and support staff) to high quality standards, expectations, and performance.
All students can learn when given a supportive, caring environment that develops self-esteem, self-motivation, and a sense of responsibility.
The achievement of high standards of learning is expected of all students.
