It is a very safe, great school with plenty of opportunities, sports, clubs, and groups. The extracurricular activities are very diverse and leave no student the ability to say there is nothing that suits their interests. The teachers and staff are phenomenal, hard-working, considerate, and express great interest in their students and jobs. Each teacher also has their own unique and special personality, and none of them are bad qualities. As the years go by, the school is increasing immensely in population and diversity is skyrocketing, moving away from a predominantly white population with more minorities attending the school as well as the district. Overall, I have loved going to this school, but it occasionally lacks organization in administration and is now instating a lot of interesting and unnecessary rules for no apparent gain. However, it is still a grand school with a lot of resources and potential and history.

Carolyn your high school is filled with teachers who deeply care about their students and students who are passionate about learning. The academic, extracurricular, and athletic opportunities are numerous and the facilities are excellent!
Currently being a student, Caledonia has given me a wide variety of options towards success later in life and has prepared me for life outside of high school. Composed of diverse studies, a large selection of AP classes and college opportunities, and even new studies and elective courses, Caledonia makes learning a safe and fun environment for everyone. Throughout my time here, I have found more of who I am not only through the classes I’ve taken, but also during my interactions with a wonderful staff that is engaged and willing to help each and every student they come into contact with. Caledonia being a small yet powerful community gives life to a whole new world of opportunities and life skills through academics, athletic events, and the overall learning experience.
