Change that serves


There used to be three high schools in the Downey Unified School District, Downey High School, Warren High School, and Columbus High School. But three was too many, so Columbus was converted to a continuation school and now houses Downey Adult School (DAS). One program at DAS allows people who never graduated from high school to train and take the General Educational Development tests. Once they pass these tests they receive their high school equivalency certificate.

The rest of Columbus is dedicated to helping adults be trained in a career. Massage therapy, dental assistance, pharmacy technician, and make-up academy are a few of the programs they offer. Check out these and many more here.
