School Overview

Welcome to Columbus Elementary! We are located at 1215 Linden Ave in Chariton. Our school serves students in Kindergarten through Second grade. Columbus is home to approximately 300 students living in Chariton and in surrounding rural communities. Chariton Preschool is located at 140 E. Albia Road and serves approximately 70 students.

Columbus Elementary believes in the success of ALL students. Our school also offers additional support services in the areas of Title 1 Reading, Title 1 Math, Special Education, Extended Learning, and English as a Second Language. We place a strong emphasis on meeting the needs of all students through differentiated instruction and research-based practices.

We care about educating the whole child. To meet our goals for developing well-rounded children, we are implementing Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). We believe in being proactive and positive. For many students, behavior may need to be taught, modeled and practicied in our building; This allows us to gain instructional time that might otherwise by lost when dealing with problem behaviors. Columbus students will show good character by following our expectations: Be Respectful, Be Responsible and Be Safe. We also believe that by acknowledging and recognizing students when they demonstrate those core values, will promote continued positive behavior.
