Profile Completeness

INTERMEDIATE

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Calera teachers are great. The principal on the other hand is horrible. If you child is a black male and attend this school. I strongly advise you to write everything down on paper and get involve with Shelby County Board of Education. This man has got to be put out.

I THINK THIS SCHOOL IS A GOOD SCHOOL IF YOU ARE NOT A BLACK MALE. UPPER ADMINISTRATION SHOWS VERY LITTLE FAIRNESS TO THOSE OF THIS PARTICULAR STATUS. IF THEY COULD GET PEOPLE TO TREAT ALL STUDENTS EQUALLY, IT WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE FOR ALL.

In my opinion, Calera is one of the up and coming 4A schools in the state. They have strong sports programs, but also great fine arts programs and strong academics--the comprehensive math team were state champs last year. The education is on a par with the bigger, more well-known Shelby County schools and the school has the added advantage of being small enough that kids don't get lost in the shuffle. I have nothing but praise for the school, teachers, staff, and students.

I think Calera has the potential to be a great school. We just went froma a 3A to a 5A so we are growing and we have new leadership. I am excited about what Calera is going to become.

We recently moved back to Alabama from El Paso, Texas. My boys love being back - the school is somewhat small, but in turn, that is what I like the best. Smaller classes give the kids a better chance. Some of the teachers are excellent while others are just starting out so they still have a chance to prove themselves. Overall, I would definitely recommend this school.

We have been very pleased with all the help we received from Calera. Our son has ADHD and has dyslexia. Mr. Mobley, principal, is the best!!!!!
