Mccallum High School 5

The fine arts program (orchestra is my connection) is excellent, earning a Grammy Award - yes, THAT Grammy in 2015. All arts disciplines produce superb quality performance and display pieces. The rigor is there too, both in arts and in general education subjects, and sports teams are competitive, but do not carry the singular focus of the school population. Overall, the students are a welcoming group, with minimal clique-ish behaviors.

My child is currently a student and these teachers, assistant principals and principal do not stand by their mission. Majority of the teachers are there simple just to get a check. They have no interest if the kid succeed or not. Some of the teachers are just as childish as some of the kids. They lack in the communication. They look at concern parents as a problem. Then take their frustrated out on the kids. They are there to teach and if that is too much for them they need to move around for a teacher that is geniune to a child needs. They are out there, just not at McCallum.

The fine arts program, the english department and the history department are fantastic. The pre AP math and science classes that my child has taken so far have been terrible.

Caring, smart teachers, accepting of all students, small enough so that students know almost everybody; great administration.

I believe you get out of school what you put into it and McCallum provides excellent opportunities for all students. My daughter is in AP classes and is a dance major in the Fine Arts Academy. She has wonderful teachers that are grooming her for college and teaching classes that I wish I could attend. The arts aspect of the school keep it funky, diversified, and more culturally advanced than any other school I know of in the area. I love McCallum.

My 2nd child to go to McCallum just started and loves it. Both boys were in the Fine Arts Academy and pre-AP/AP classes. They've had some outstanding teachers. Thanks to Ms. Adamson, Mr. Ferguson, and 'the Wiz'!
