Our “March Toward Excellence” continues through teamwork among students, faculty, staff, parents, and the community. Overall our students did a great job with attendance and grades the first half of the school year. Our teachers will continue to increase rigor in the classroom, as well as focus on preparing your child for the new upcoming State assessments, ACT and WorkKeys, as well as the (EOC) End of Course Exams. Intense tutoring sessions will start in February. It is imperative that your child is in school every day. Please schedule appointments for your child after school. If you must pick your child up during the school day, we ask that you do so between classes. A bell schedule can be obtained from the front office.
Please use this opportunity to review your child’s mid-year progress. Research indicates that student performance and attendance is increased with parental involvement. Parent-teacher conferences can be scheduled by contacting our Guidance Administrative Assistant, at (803) 655-2658.
I look forward to continuing to work as a team in preparing your child to be a productive citizen of this community.

Calhoun County High School received the U.S. News & World Report Best High Schools’ Bronze Award for the eighth consecutive year.
To produce the 2014 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.
