COLUMBUS, Ohio – Students at some Columbus City Schools will not be in the same building this time next year. On Tuesday, the Board of Education approved modified recommendations to a facilities proposal to address overcrowding and building utilization at six Columbus schools. The changes will roll out over the next two years.
- Current sixth grade students at Ecole Kenwood French Immersion, Columbus Spanish Immersion Academy, and Hubbard Mastery will remain at the three schools for seventh grade during the 2019-2020 school year.
- Columbus North International seventh through 12th graders will co-locate with Columbus Global Academy sixth through 12th graders. Those students will move to the former Brookhaven High School on Karl Road at the start of the 2019-2020 school year.
- Dominion Middle School students will relocate to the North High School building on East Arcadia Avenue during the second half of the 2019-2020 school year.
The district will also begin a year of planning to create a middle and high school immersion program to form a new feeder pattern with Ecole Kenwood, Columbus Spanish Immersion and Hubbard Mastery. The anticipated launch will be in the 2020-2021 school year. Columbus City Schools say it will open a new middle school immersion plan in the 2020-2021 school year. This will relocate sixth through eighth graders at Columbus Global Academy to the former Dominion Middle School site. The plan will also include a phase-down of the Columbus North International program to serving grades nine through 12 only.
