We have some very talented students! Our ag mechanics students displayed those talents at their annual Capstone night in the ag shop at Columbia High School. Congratulations to our seniors!


Hey! We know this guy, and we think he's pretty great. We are proud to have Rowan in our programs and look forward to seeing what he accomplishes in the future!

With a 4.3265 grade point average, Rowan Hamilton has the highest-ranking GPA at Columbia High School in Nampa. Rowan has been a member of the Nampa FFA for the past three years, an active member of NHS for the last two years and has achieved perfect attendance this school year. As a junior, he started taking plumbing classes in the evenings through the College of Western Idaho (CWI). Over his summers, Rowan ran a lawn mowing business and apprenticed with a local contractor plumber to accumulate hours on the job. He also always found time to help those in need of yard work, pro bono. He has earned 10 dual enrollment classes in high school.

Mrs. Olson, his shop and agriculture teacher, Mr. Doering, his social science teacher, and Mrs. Duke, the P.E. and Health teacher, have all been mentors to him at various times throughout his academic journey.

After high school, Rowan plans to become a plumber. He has already completed his first two full years of schooling through CWI thanks to his evening classes the past two years. He continues to accumulate apprenticeship hours.

This fall, he will attend BYU-Idaho pursuing a Business Management Degree, while continuing his third year of plumbing school and apprenticing. He plans on starting a two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints next summer.


Congratulations on all your accomplishments, Rowan. Youโ€™re a shining example of the strength and possibilities that come from an Idaho K-12 education!

Did you catch our talented ICAT EMT students at the Race to Robie Creek over the weekend? They were there with their awesome EMT Instructor, Mr. Sesek, keeping an eye on the runners and making sure everyone was in tip-top shape! Hopefully, you didn't need their help, but if you did, you would have been in good hands.

Our Nampa CTE students are always ready to lend a helping hand. Great job to our Nampa High Auto Body program for helping someone in need.

Nampa, weโ€™re in good hands!
Earlier this week, there was a crash on Lake Lowell Ave in front of Nampa High School. One of the vehicles ended up with a flat tire. The driver had a spare, but not a lug wrench to change the flat.
Our patrol cars have the spare tires and related equipment removed to make room for radios, computers and other police equipment, so we couldnโ€™t help in this situation either. But Officer Deran Watt went to the NHS office to see if a staff member could help with a loaner lug wrench. Without hesitation, the school staff contacted the NHS Auto Body instructor who right away sent Jaden, Evan, Cobhan and Samuel to save the day! These young men went right to work and had the tire changed in just a matter of minutes.
Thank You, gentlemen and NHS for the help! The driver was very appreciative and we were able to get the crash cleared and traffic flowing smooth again. The help-without-hesitation from the office staff, to the instructor, to the all-in students, is another example of what makes our community great. You made us !

Nampa School District
