About Us

Columbian High School is part of the Tiffin City Schools located in Seneca County, Ohio.  A public high school with approximately 850 students, Columbian Tornadoes take pride in producing well rounded graduates that are educationally ready for their next journey in life.  Welcome to our website!
Tiffin City Schools’ mission is to create and promote learning environments where ALL students will be provided the opportunities to achieve at their fullest learning potential.  We want all Tiffin City Schools’ graduates to leave us college and/or career ready. We are encouraging more of our students to participate in Advanced Placement (AP) classes, College Credit Plus (CCP) and Career Technical Education (CTE).  So, what does this mean and how do we make it happen?
It is frequently said that one of the goals of high school improvement is to make sure all students graduate “college and/or career ready.” However, as often as this promise is reiterated, there is still misunderstanding about what it actually means.  Simply put, “college and career readiness” refers to the knowledge and skills high school graduates must have in English and Mathematics.  This includes, but is not limited to, reading, writing communications, teamwork, critical thinking and problem solving.  Having this knowledge and skill is the key to being successful in any and all future opportunities.  Readiness for college and/or careers depends on more than English and Mathematics knowledge.  Success after high school depends on the knowledge, habits, skills and character that come from a rigorous and well-rounded high school experience.

Tiffin City Schools has a long tradition of excellence throughout our buildings. We also know and understand some families have a desire or a need for an online learning environment. With this in mind we want to offer an online learning program once again that is supported and monitored by Tiffin City Schools staff. As we need to plan for staffing for next year, we are asking families who are interested in enrolling their students in this program to do so by *August 10th at midnight. *THIS IS AN EXTENSION OF THE DEADLINE.
