Greetings, It is my pleasure to welcome you to Calhoun County High School, home of the Saints, where we exemplify a tradition of excellence. We have a history of being nationally recognized as a school that emphasizes excellence. It is truly an honor for me to serve as principal of such an outstanding high school and community.
Our goal at Calhoun County High is to support all students academically, socially, and emotionally. We will make every effort so all students graduate as successful and literate members of society and be able to succeed in the increasingly complex world in which they will live and work. The incredible faculty and staff at Calhoun County High School continue to encourage all students to set high goals for themselves and to reach for their dreams.
The partnership between families and our school is an important part of our success. Students benefit as parents and guardians are involved in their learning. We should have consistent communication between home and school and regular opportunities for families to learn about what is happening at school and provide feedback to help us improve.
I look forward to another wonderful school year of Offering the Total Package and helping every student become College and Career Ready.
Thank you for supporting our school!
2015 Snapshot of CCHS
Calhoun County High School received the U.S. News & World Report Best High Schools’ Bronze Award for the ninth consecutive year.
To produce the 2015 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.
