Map of Calhoun High School address.

Calhoun tends to focus only on certain activities, and has no regards for others. Football seems to be a huge distraction at times for students, more so than say leggings under a skirt. Although they do care about academics, but it seems to come after football. For example, the fine arts are slowly degressing within this school and is sad to see with as much talents as we have. Focus is what needs to be directed in other various places, to make this school better.

Calhoun High School tends to focus a lot on sports and how to make students life hard. I believe that the school should be focusing on academics rather than some ridiculous rules. For example, why is it a big deal to wear a skirt with leggings under it? Sometimes they get to carried away with making up all of these insane rules student just seem to focus on how they can break it. As a former student I don't think they have prepared me well for college which is what we tend to go to school for to learn....Calhoun does have some good teachers, just the way the school is ran needs work.

Calhoun is maybe at the high end of mediocre schools. The rules and level of strictness is normal, especially considering the highly conservative community. There are a few great teachers in this school that are far too underapreciated and undervalued. There are oppurtunities for students that apply themselves. However, there is not much academic or extracurricular competition, which hinders a striving student's growth. It is definately laking in many ways, but is pretty good for the area. The school administration, however, makes very poor use of it's finacial resources and unfairly gives little attention to advanced students.

Well, This high school is very good. I think that if the faculty and staff wouldn't worry about all these 'rules' then we can shift our focus on academics. I believe that instead of trying to get rid of all these 'distractions' we are just making a bigger deal about it.

As a student of the school, I have to say that it is not a good place to learn and grow. Yes, it is a good school for the area. Most teachers don't really care about you, and the six weeks tests make learning information hard because you have to study to pass the test, rather than learning at your pace or the teachers pace.

I believe that the school has a lot of potential ,but it just doesn't show. Compared to other schools it is pretty good. The teachers here are very helpfull and help foward your education. The school is very strict though. Some of the rules are just plain stupid if you ask me. The security guards are always on your case and you can't just be yourself. The education is good though if you are willing to learn and pay attention.

This is an ok school. Compared to the other high school in this area, it is the best. They do have great math and english teachers, but some of the faculty dont really care about the students.
