I certainly did not like this school at all. Teachers were very disrespectful, and I went in to talk to one of the principals, as I went into his office, he went outside saying as if he had to watch what went on in the hallway, I was very ashamed of the way the teachers treated my daughter there.

Calhoun has the strongest committment to students that I have found. An outstanding fine arts department, excellent support staff and Mr. Sims is one of the best principals I have had for my children. CMS truly makes Denton proud.

Very disappointing experience at Calhoun. The band program and teachers were great. We left Calhoun and went to a private school because of the apathy in the administration and staff on the first day of school.

I have enjoyed having my kids at CMS. The teachers are caring and committed. I love the standardized dress code. It has made such a difference in our family. Keep it up Calhoun!

School is safe for kids; however the teachers do not consider these children are just that, children. There is not enough praise for the kids. If the child is average the teachers talk down to them and allow the excelated students more credit. School needs to be more loving and caring.

This School is very involved in afterschool activities. It also prides itself on its standardized dress code. The teachers are great one on one teachers as well as handling 30 students in a class. With an excellent fine arts program and an overall excellent campus this school is paving the way for the ...  Read more
