On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the staff of the Columbus Municipal School District, I welcome you to our district! As your superintendent, I look forward to working hard to assure continued academic and social success for all of our students. I am deeply committed to working with families, students, staff and community members to create educational conditions and opportunities that enable all children to become actively literate, contributing and participating members of society who make a positive difference in the world.
We pledge that our students will be our top priority. Instruction will focus on preparing all students for future success in a global workforce as contributors to the welfare of others in a democratic society.
Further, we pledge to provide a learning climate wherein increasing rigor and higher standards are available to all students as we strive to develop a community of life-long learners that are built around respect, responsibility, resourcefulness, and responsiveness, which lead to academic and social excellence.
Thank you for choosing Columbus Municipal Schools.
Welcome and best wishes,
Dr. Philip W. V. Hickman
