Columbia 93 School District,[1] also known as the Columbia Public School District, is located in Columbia, Boone County, Missouri. The district is Accredited with Distinction by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. 19,052 students are enrolled as of 2020.[2][3] The district has four high schools, seven middle schools, and twenty-one elementary schools. The district also has a career center, preschool, gifted education school, and special education school. The current Superintendent, Brian Yearwood, started with the district on July 1, 2021.

Prior to 2013, there were three middle schools for grades 6-7 and three junior high schools for grades 8–9. With the opening of Battle High School, 9th grade was able to move to high school and all six schools became middle schools for grades 6–8.

The seventh middle school, John Warner Middle School, opened its doors in the 2020 school year.

The district includes almost all of the Columbia city limits, and it includes all of Huntsdale, McBaine, and Pierpont, along with unincorporated areas.[4]
