School Resources


Dear Parent/Guardians:

It is hard to believe we are at the midpoint of the school year already.  We have had an excellent start to the new school year.  Thank you for your efforts to prepare your children for the start of school.  Please continue to be attentive to your children’s progress as the academic year evolves.   

We are very proud of our State School Report Card rating of Excellent/Excellent and receiving the US News and World Report America’s Best High School Bronze Award.  These accomplishments are due to the hard work of students and teachers; and the home and school working together.  We strive to provide the best educational experience possible. Our teachers teach to the best of their abilities every day; guiding your child on a path that will give him/her the skills necessary for a productive future in college or career after high school. The curriculum is rigorous and the standards will remain high. We cannot afford to lower the bar.  Our students must be able to compete not just with students in our region, but across the globe. Our students deserve a world class education, and at Calhoun County High School he/she will receive it.                             

Our theme this year is Offering the Total Package: Exceeding Expectations. Your continued interest and support is necessary for the success of the school and community.

Calhoun County High School received the U.S. News & World Report Best High Schools’ Bronze Award for the seventh consecutive year. 

To produce the 2013 U.S. News & World Report Best High Schools rankings, U.S. News teamed up with the Washington, D.C.-based American Institutes for Research (AIR), one of the largest behavioral and social science research organizations in the world.  U.S. News & World Report analyzed 21,035 public high schools in 49 states and the District of Columbia. A three-step process determined the Best High Schools. The first two steps ensured that the schools serve all of their students well, using performance on state proficiency tests as the benchmarks. For those schools that made it past the first two steps, a third step assessed the degree to which schools prepare students for college-level work. 

This honor is a result of collective efforts and teamwork among dedicated teachers, focused students, and supportive parents.
