Where did christopher Columbus go to high school?
People in the 1400's didn't have high school. It didn't exist until 400 years later, so he didn't go to high school. He began as a ship's boy and went the school of Navigation by Prince Henry of Portugal.

No one in Latin America, where Columbus first landed, has ever heard of "Christopher Columbus" because that is NOT the name of the man who discovered America. His name was "Cristobal Colon". American historians like to make it look like Americans discovered everything so they tried to translate Cris…tobal Colon's name and that's what they came up with. If the musician Jose Feliciano writes a new song, do we first translate his name to "Joe Happiness" or something similar? Do we translate the name of the state of "Nevada" to English and put on the map "Snowfall" because that's what it means in English? No. Case closed. . Answer . No, most are taught that the Vikings were technically the first Europeans to step foot on the Americas, and that Asians were the first to arrive as they crossed the ice bridge to what is now Alaska. But they are also taught that Columbus was the first to return home documenting the fact that he had actually been somewhere. Of course, he was mistaken in believing that he had found a route to "the East", believing that he had landed in an island off the coast of India or China, but American students are taught that it was not so simple as "Columbus discovered..."

Christopher Columbus never went to north America, only south America. The guy who went to Florida was looking for the fountain of youth, his name was Juan Ponce de Leon.
Columbus landed on an island called Hispaniola. He never got to North America nor knew it was there. He thought he landed in India so called the natives "Indians." He made 3 more trips all in the area of the Bahamas and on his last trip he was shipped wrecked with his son for nearly 3 years before t…hey were rescued. He was a mean greedy man who failed at what he set out to do. ( Full Answer )

The thinking of the time was that there could be a water route to Asia so various people, including Columbus, began to look for a way to get to Asia to bring back trade goods. Columbus was also after riches and fame. He never did get to Asia and only found an island called Hispaniola with no gold an…d a few natives. He thought he landed in India and never knew about North America 90 miles away. ( Full Answer )
Well, he was 25, born in 1451, so lets see, 1451 - 25 ------- have fun with subbtraction!
He ( and others) were looking for a faster sea route to Asia. The overland trade routes were slow and dangerous so it was thought that a water route to Asia would be better. He was also after riches and fame.
nobody realy knows where sholes went to school but there are records that he did
he was going to India to find the northwest passage between India and China (known then as Cathay)
He was trying to find a quick route to the Pacific East. Easter Asia would be a nice answer. The first answer is true..... but not all. He wanted gold, fame and anything he can get his hands on. He's wanted for rape, thievery, enslaving and genocidal murder. He cut the hands off of none paying sl…aves. Alright, but that has nothing to do with his original intention with exploring the seas He wanted to go to the western Indies,or Asia ( Full Answer )
Christopher Columbus was an explorer, colonizer, and navigator born in the Republic of Genoa, in what is now northwestern Italy. Under the auspices of the Catholic Monarchs of Spain, he completed four voyages across the Atlantic Ocean that led to general European awareness of the American continents… in the Western Hemisphere. Those voyages, and his efforts to establish permanent settlements in the island of Hispaniola, initiated the process of Spanish colonization and foreshadowed the general European colonization of the New World.

Christopher Columbus knew that the world was a large ball and thatif he sailed West he would eventually find Asia (China and India).This is why we call Native Americans Indians: Columbus, seeingtheir reddish complexion, thought he had landed in India (southAsia). He did not realize at the time that …he had landed on part oftwo new continents unknown to Europeans. Cartographers in Columbus' day were divided over how far away Asiawas, not knowing of the Americas or the wide Pacific Ocean, whichmade Asia much farther to reach, going west from Europe.

My opinion is that Christopher Columbus really didn't go to Asia. Amerigo Vespucci found out. (Also John Cabot lied)
Hi, He was born in Calverton, a village on the outskirts of Nottingham and went to Sir John Sherbrooke Junior School in the same village before going to the nearby high school called Seeley High.
he went on expeditions to search for a Northwest Passage (all water route through or arround North America)
Curiosity, money/gold/gems, fame and glory, form allies/friendship, trade, gain territory, greater glory of God, wants another route to asia, make Spain famous.
Columbus never went to Canada. He never set foot on the Mainland of North America, he was only in the Caribbean Islands.
He didn't go to elementary schools. In the 1400's they did not exist. If a person was from a wealthy family they were tutored by priests at home. It is possible that Columbus was from a wealthy Spanish family ( recent historical facts points that he was Spanish and not Italian) so he would have a tu…tor. History does report he went to Prince Henry's School of Navigation as an young man. ( Full Answer )
Columbus mistreated his men and the native Americans. he murdered mative men and reped and burned the women and children. he then paraided the dismembered bodies through the towns. oth him and his brother were arrested and shipped back to loose their titles and prestige.
Asia. He thought he was in India when he landed on Cuba. He never imagained he had found a whole new world.
Not all high schools are off many vocational schools, for exapmle BCIT in burlington county NJ, still have school.
christopher Columbus was going to china but he ended up in Asia he was about 4 years old
Joplin Senior High School in Joplin, Missouri xoxo-kayla Joplin Senior High... but he dropped out when he was 16.
Marco Polo I want to add here that Columbus wasn't coming to "America" he was looking for Asia and found an island called Hispaniola. He never reached North America.
Actually, according to the legend of Columbus he went to the school of navigation that Prince Henry had.
He wanted to go East Indies.... That is INDIA Subcontinent as it was the richest country in the ancient world.
To prove the earth is round and that he can go around to get to India. But he ended up in America. You can remember this by Native Americans were called Indians because Christopher Columbus thought he was in India so he called the Indians. Hope this helped!
Back in CC's time they people of Europe got their spices from Asia (i believe it was mostly India and china)
He allegedly made a trip to Chios, a Genoese colony in the Aegean Sea. May 1476, he took part in an armed convoy sent by Genoa to carry a valuable cargo to northern Europe. He docked in Bristol, England; Galway, Ireland; and possibly Iceland in 1477. In 1479, he went to Lisbon, Portugal to see his …brother while trading for the family employing him (the Centurione family). Between 1482 and 1485, he traded along the coasts of West Africa and reached Elmina - a trading post. Between 1492 and 1503, he completed four round-trip voyages between Spain and the Americas.

Columbus never made it to Venezuela. Amerigo Vespucci went there, but later lied about making it to North America.

Christopher Columbus did go to a special school for navagation, he got more and more in to it.
He didn't go around any Continent. There is a stream of water from Europe to the Bahamas that moves ships as they travel. He caught this stream without knowing it and ended up on an island he called Hispaniola. He never knew North America existed.
India , but he ended up in America/West Indies, hence the name the West Indies ;)
He wanted to go to India and other parts of Asia to get some exotic spices because back then spices were very popular and were a good business. Instead he ended in the Americas. He called the natives of the Americas Indians thinking that he had landed in India. That is why people use the term India…ns for natives Americans and native south and central Americans.

Columbus started his journey on May 9, 1502 and finished his journey on November 7, 1504
His journey wasn't to discover America. He was going to India. He just thought it was India.
No one knows for fact there is a heaven or hell. If there is such things, it is currently impossible to have knowledge of where certain people end up.
He wanted to find an all-water route to Asia by sailing west. He was right that one might reach Asia by sailing west but he did not know that the continents of North and South America lay between Europe and Asia. What he accomplished was of far greater significance in the long run.
Voyage to the Americas would not have been possible without the support of Queen Isabella of Spain, also he was a sailer
