I had the most unique, positive, and life-changing middle school experience. I moved into the quaint town of Califon when I was going into 5th grade, and graduated with 10 other kids in 2018. Since the school is so small, I was truly able to develop a family-like bond with my classmates. The teachers were not only my mentors but my friends. Whoever said that small schools don't provide opportunity? I was able to join Debate-Club, Reading Olympics, theater, cheerleading, student council, walking school buses and so much more! Since there aren't any tryouts for activities, you have the opportunity to explore all your interests! Since Califon is such a safe town, they give the middle school students the opportunity to go home for lunch or walk to the general store to eat with friends. My parents often described Califon School as a remanence of their childhood, where they had freedom and 'good old fashioned fun.' I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to attend Califon!

We love Califon School! We moved here from Long Valley 3 years ago and are so happy to be part of this wonderful little community. Our children are happy and thriving, and have had an excellent educational experience. The principle is kind and greets our children warmly every morning and the teachers and staff go above and beyond for their students. We have incredible music, physical education, and art programs, as well as sports, clubs, and a wonderful PTA. Great town, great people, great school! We are lucky to be here, and I couldn’t wish for a better place for my children to grow up.
Califon school is absolutely amazing.
My children are happy to go to school every day. The education is top notch, the small classes allow teachers to give each child the opportunity to learn and achieve success
