Calhoun High School is nationally recognized for its academic excellence. Founded more than 100 years ago, the school has a tradition of excellence in academics, athletics and the arts. The school has excellent teachers, leaders and huge community support. The community is blessed to have the small town feel of this highschool. Everyone is a yellow jacket and the spirit is contagious.
