Principal's Message

I would like to welcome you to Columbian High School’s website. We have a variety of information for you to view.  Please explore and investigate the various links. Columbian High School is recognized as an outstanding educational institution thanks to the hard work and dedication of our students, staff, parents, and community. It is my sincere honor to be writing this letter as Principal of Columbian High School.

The mission of Columbian High School is “to guarantee that all students achieve success by providing a broad range of curricular and co-curricular opportunities and experiences.” At Columbian High School, we provide a challenging and comprehensive curriculum that offers diverse learning opportunities including college and career programs that will equip our students with the skills for a successful future. In the classroom, our staff is dedicated and committed to providing a learning environment that will challenge, engage, and inspire our students.

We encourage our students to challenge themselves both in the classroom and outside of the classroom. A student’s high school experience only happens once. We want our students to take advantage of all the opportunities that Columbian has to offer and create positive memories and friendships that will last a lifetime.

Please know that I have an open door policy and that I am always interested and willing to listen to your concerns, suggestions, and feedback.  Please feel free to call me at 419-447-6331 or email me at doug_hartenstein@tiffincityschools.org.

I am looking forward to an outstanding 2016-2017 school year.

We are…TC!!


Yours in Education,

Douglas E. Hartenstein
