Student Schedules

In TCS in the Middle and High Schools, a schedule is managed by letters from A to E, in order to have continuity in the weeks, since in Colombia there are many holidays. This ensures that there is a full schedule throughout the school year.

Health  Services

The Columbus School has a Nurse’s Office for the entire School, with professional staff in charge of the basic care of students and staff.

Grades Different to K4 and Extemporaneous Admissions

At The Columbus School we have extemporaneous admissions processes for families coming from other countries or cities at times different from the usual registration period.
