Calhoun Falls Charter School is proud to announce our high school has received an “Excellent” rating on the 2023 School Report Card! CFCS’s rating outranked high schools in our local school district and the Lakelands area. Once again, CFCS excelled with an excellent on-time graduation rate. Our middle school showed great improvement, advancing from its 2022 rating of “Unsatisfactory” to the 2023 rating of “Average,” only three points shy of rating “Good.” Both middle and high school received excellent School Climate ratings. As a Title 1 School, with a poverty index of 82%, we strive each day to overcome challenges instead of using them as an excuse. There are still areas of our school report cards that need improving. The CFCS family is committed to pursuing academic goals that will enhance student outcomes and overall school success.
Principal Kalan Rogers, says, “I would like to thank the entire school community, including teachers, staff, students, parents, and the school board for their unwavering support and dedication to excellence. I also want to acknowledge the hard work and commitment of our amazing faculty and staff, who consistently go above and beyond to ensure the success of their students. We are excited to receive this recognition; it serves as a testament to the hard work and commitment of everyone at CFCS. We remain committed to our mission to provide a safe and supportive learning environment where students are actively engaged in the educational process, develop strong leadership qualities and create an opportunity for the children and families of Calhoun Falls to leave behind a living legacy to future generations.”
