The students at Callison are college bound!
Our students are hard working cougars, who put their best effort in all they do! Our goal is for our students to be college and career ready. All students graduating from high school must have the skills and knowledge necessary to assume their positions in the 21st century global economy. We believe all students have the potential to attend college therefore, it is extremely important that every student receives the opportunity to be educated in a way that prepares him or her for college if he or she chooses to attend. Today's students need to be prepared wtih communication, collaboration, creativity, leadership, global citizenship and critical thinking skills. We will be incorporating these skills in our lessons on a daily basis. We are creating a college readiness culture by each classroom adopting a different college. Each classroom will adopt colleges in various ways.
