This year Columbia High School participated in the NJ State Teen Arts Festival on May 30th, 2018 at Ocean County College. It was the second consecutive year CHS participated and the second year that SOMSD was the only district from Essex County present at the state arts festival.
CHS was 1 of 2 schools chosen by Classroom CloseUp to be documented at the festival. View the photo album here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/
