I can say this is one of the best high schools I have ever experienced. Other people around the Elk Grove District may say this is a horrible school to go to because it is filled with "delinquents", "troublemakers", etc. In all a bad environment. I can tell you that everyone in the school is UNIQUE! For the two years I have went to Calvine, I have never experienced anyone fight or become violent. Most students are focused on graduating so there is barely any room for violence. One of my favorite teachers, Mary-Beth, said, "This school is for students that didn't fit in the regular "boxed in" school system and are open-minded." In Calvine, they the staff are one of the best because they give you that push INDIVIDUALLY to succeed in graduating. The support from the teachers makes the difference in the students attitude. Instead of giving out work and teaching from the book, these teachers teach beyond the book and give you the motivation in learning. I highly recommend this school, even though it's a continuation school, because the teachers will help you to the best of their ability to get you or your child back on track to graduate.
