Subject: Handwriting

Penmanship or handwriting is how most language arts assignments are completed at Columbia (rather than typed), even in the upper grades. From the start, we teach students to write in cursive and encourage its use. While some think that cursive is a dying art, and many young people at other schools find it hard to decipher, Columbia students are comfortable with both writing and reading in cursive. This skill unlocks creativity, encourages thoughtfulness and discipline, and develops an appreciation for beauty. In a world that increasingly only concerns itself with utility and function, cursive handwriting is a treasure of civilization worth keeping.
