Principal Ameer Kim El-Mallowany has left Columbus North International School to become Director of Family and Community Engagement at the Partnership for Los Angeles Schools. We are so sad to loose such a fine educator. PBAA wants to thank him for everything that he has done for us.

The selection committee has done a great job in choosing Kenny Lee as our new principal. His philosophy and personality seems to be much like Ameer's He is from the Westerville schools and served as a high school and middle school social studies teacher, curriculum coordinator, assistant principal, and facilitator for innovative learning systems. He said that he is looking forward to working with PBAA and the feeling is mutual. Welcome Kenny.




On August 22, 2012 North High School entered a new era as Columbus International High School moved into the building. They are permanent residents. On July 4, 2013, it was announced that the school was to be renamed Columbus NORTH International High School.

It opened in 2010 at Fort Hayes High School with only a ninth grade. In 2011 they added one more year and were at Clinton Middle School. Another year was added this year and in 2013 it will become a full four year high school. It teaches all of the normal high school courses, History/Social Studies, Math, Science, Fine Arts, and English, in addition there is French, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, Japanese and Russian..

Principal Ameer Kim El-Mallowany was born in Cleveland but is of Egyptian-Korean heritage. He has great respect for the history of North and wants the CIHS to become a part of it’s legacy. He has even asked us to do a display of the history of North High School in the third floor gallery.
