  • Hi there:
    I just want to say that you have a good school there in your community, the teachers there are very good teachers along with the leadership of the principal.I find that some of the comments are not in good taste as some students who complain can't even spell nor use the appropiate capitalisation when writing comments.Instead of complaining about the faculty they need to buckle down and learn some important things in life as far as education is concerned, always complaining and never doing anything positive. Calhoun High is a great school My husband and his family attended there before integration took place. Your school has a marvelous history about it. I wish I had a job teaching at yor high school. I am a teacher of ten years in New York and I love Alabama and when I visit the school is right down the road from my sister in law. So learn to love learning it will take you far.
