The Calhoun High School has vastly improved over the years & is now the school to go to in Lowndes County. The students are challenged constantly. The after-school activities are there to keep your future on getting ahead in life. I commend all of the students & teachers for keeping my alma mater the standard of greatness that it has always stood for.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Alabama used the Alabama Reading and Mathematics Test (ARMT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math. The ARMT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Alabama. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
