I have been attending Calera High School since August 2015. This school has shown me the differences in a lot of people from character, attitude, etc. Calera High is a very welcoming and protected school. The faculty and staff does everything they can to make sure the students feel as if they are at home. Calera provides students with great learning techniques. The athletics here are great! The electives are very fun to be a part of they allow students to express themselves in many ways with given opportunities to do things they love and prepare them for their career in the future.
