My daughter just finished her second year at Calera Elementary and we have been very pleased with the school and especially her teachers Ms. Montgomery and Ms. Richie. The school tries very hard to place each student with the right teacher based on learning styles and needs. Yes it is a title 1 school ...  Read more

Calera Elementary does not have an administrative team that is ethical, honest, or supportive. I have seen too much underhanded manipulation go on without anyone standing up to do what is right and what is best for the education of our children. I have lost my faith in this school...

This is a Title I school. (Not Good) Linda Chesler is a horrible principal. She is very detached to the students and parents. She is not empathetic to the students or parents. My three children all hated this school.

Calera Elementary is an excellent learning environment for children. With a strong academic, community oriented, and great value system for children and their families. As good as any school system in our nation.

As a parent and a law enforcement officer I can say that Calera Elementary School far exceeds the standards parents should expect for their children. The quality of instruction, compassion and professionalism is second to none. These teachers not only develop our children intellectually but also re-enforce ...  Read more
