School Profile

Calhoun Elementary School is located in the Calhoun Educational Complex on Raymond King Dr.  We share the facilities with Calhoun Primary School, making us the largest school in the state of Georgia under one roof.  The elementary school serves approximately 970 students in grades 3-5.  

The mission of CES is for ALL students to become life-long learners in the pursuit of excellence.  It is our goal that our community takes pride in our school and has confidence in the education that their children are receiving.  In the last few years, student achievement has increased over every subgroup, and working in partnership with our parents and community members, the faculty and staff works our school improvement plan to continue in that direction.  Some major focuses have been to develop a love for reading in every child and to increase their reading level and comprehension, to increase their ability to solve real-world mathematics problems, to give them realistic and hands-on science and social studies experiences, and to increase their exposure to and mastery of technology experiences.  The implementation of the Jacket Gold positive behavior support system has helped students in making choices that are better for themselves and for their peers, improving their manners and their peer relations.  While students are privileged to experience top- notch classroom experiences, we make sure that they have fun while they are here,too. We reward them for their behavior and academic successes.   At Calhoun Elementary School we envision responsible and respectful students who are committed to success in all that they do; we envision ethical and effective teachers who collaboratively design engaging learning experiences for all students; and we envision productive productive partnerships with parents and the community.
