The Power Of One

  • Greatness doesn’t just happen. It is created one step at a time. A skyscraper starts with one plan. A masterpiece starts with one simple brushstroke. And a student fully prepared to lead and serve begins with one community pulling together for the benefit of all. One teacher can inspire. One caring adult can support. One idea can change everything. And when we come together as one with students leading the way, we can accomplish the incredible.

    The past two years have been more difficult than we could have imagined. But we have proven that we are up to the challenge. It will take the Power of One community joining together to set our students up for success. Watch for details about the new Columbus City Schools Strategic Plan and Portrait of a Graduate.  We are now more prepared than ever to meet any obstacle in the future head on — and succeed with our Students Leading the Way.
