Welcome to the Calhoun R-VIII School District, where we strive to make our motto “Education for today’s students…tomorrow’s leaders” come alive each and every day! Having the advantages of small class sizes, one-on-one attention from teachers, and a caring environment, students can thrive and grow to their full potential. Students in our schools have the advantage of small school learning at its best. Up to date technologies in classrooms, low student to teacher ratios, and the opportunity to literally participate in any of our extra and co-curricular activities are several of the attributes for our district.
As a very small, rural district we work very hard to provide those learning experiences that best prepare our students for their futures. Beginning with our award winning early childhood center, we in the Calhoun Schools strive to give all kids the foundations of learning that will prepare them as they grow and mature every step of the way. Producing graduates that are college and career ready is our ultimate goal. We look forward to serving your student and your family in our schools, and seek your feedback in our efforts to constantly improve. Together as partners, we stand strong in working to give all our students the best possible learning opportunities!
