It’s currently under construction as Columbine gets a new building.

DIVERSITY

Columbine is majority Latino.

Here’s a great 2008 story on diversity and racial stratification in BVSD schools like Columbine  – which starts with the sobering statistic that Latinos then had a 50/50 chance of graduating high school:

In a racial flip-flop, a parent walking into Columbine Elementary leaves a wider community that’s about 80 percent white and enters a smaller community that’s about 80 percent Latino. A sign just behind the front door welcomes visitors into Columbine’s world: “In this school we support, respect and find strength in our diversity.”

I want to find a site to link to with current demographic data on the school. If you know of one, let me know.
