You have educators that really care about their students and their school system. I personally think you have alot of people working together for the good of this school,parents and teachers alike.I am currently on a committee at this school and I am finding out first hand that these teachers really care.They also work hard on preparing their students and parents alike on T-Cap testing. Calhoun Elementary is a school that cares. The kids are also getting a good education. Education is important we all know that,but so is concern. Calhoun is a concerned school, looking out for all students and trying to involve all parents. GREAT SCHOOL!

Calhoun Elementary is an excellent educational facility. The faculty and staff are all top notch educators and people. This is like getting a private school education at a public school price.
