The Calhoun School's 125th Anniversary

Honoring our past. Open to our future.

Calhoun has evolved over the past 125 years, but our commitment to student empowerment, community engagement and a forward-looking education has been ongoing. Our 125th anniversary year is a time to honor our rich history and come together as a community. Calhoun is the school it is today because of the students, educators and families who have shaped it. As we reflect on where we’ve been, we are open to the future that we will build together.
