Calera High School3

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.
