Back to School 2013 in Columbus

by Maureen McCabe on August 8, 2013

Columbus back to school 2013… 

Kilbourne Middle School - Worthington Ohio

Old schools, new schools… public schools, private schools, parochial schools, charter schools.    In June or July Chris Pugh asked if he could post something about a new charter school in Columbus  on   Where did summer go?   If Chris is still interested, is open to it.

I don’t even really understand what a charter school is personally.  As a real estate agent I am probably ultra aware of central Ohio school districts.

New schools

Recently on Facebook Cristo Rey Columbus shared:

“Class officially starts August 19th; therefore, there is still time to join Cristo Rey Columbus High School’s inaugural freshman class. For admissions information, visit or call Meghan Devring 614-223-9261, Ext. 227 today!”

Cristo Rey is a Catholic high school but it is not part of Columbus Catholic Schools.  I remember hearing about Cristo Rey coming to Columbus years ago.  There are Cristo Rey high schools across the country.    Cristo Rey sounded like a great opportunity for some central Ohio students.

Again, I’d be happy to share Chris’s post about a new school in central Ohio.

Public schools

Grandview and others start school next Wednesday, August 14, 2013?    Less than a week from today… again where did SUMMER go?  Channel 10 has a list of back to school 2013 school dates on their site!

2013 Back to School dates Channel 10TV  WBNS Columbus, Ohio

Westerville City Schools start on Wednesday, August 14, 2013 too.  Olentangy Local Schools and Big Walnut Local Schools in Delaware County, Ohio start that same day… Buckeye Valley Local schools start the next day.

Columbus City Schools start a week later on Wednesday August 21, 2013.  Worthington City Schools start Monday, August 19, 2013 or at least the middle and high schools do…

Private schools

The 2013 WBNS 1oTV  Back to School list says…  “Columbus Catholic Schools (some schools only starting for new students on this date)”  confused? Look the the list compiled by the TV channel for yourself if this concerns you.

The list has starting dates for local colleges too!

Perhaps the Columbus Dispatch and other Columbus television stations have “Back to School” lists too.   I hated “Back to School” time as a kid.  I loved the first day back but dreaded it before.  I hate the end of summer.  I hate Labor Day weekend.
The top photo is Kilbourne Middle School in Worthington.  It’s my photo, I think the photo was taken in the fall of  2011 or 2012. It is a very old school building.   I love it.
