Caledonia Community Schools
Caledonia's schools are caring places that focus on "personalized learning". A dedicated staff strives to encourage each child to be actively involved in his/her education. Our teachers are involved in staff development that emphasizes best practices and meaningful learning experiences for all children.
Our programs are designed for students to be engaged in a full complement of classroom opportunities for students to learn "beyond classroom walls" through field trips, community service, mentorships, internships, community as school, senior exhibition and interim experiences. We believe these opportunities connect students to the "real world" and prepare them to become productive, contributing members in a dynamic and diverse world.
Caledonia Schools are committed to educating the "whole person." Our goals include graduating students who can demonstrate high levels of academic proficiency and who have the ability to think, problem solve, communicate, and apply technological and social skills.

One of the most important factors relating to our students' success in school is the involvement of parents and community members in the educational process.
As in the past, parents and community members are invited to participate in school improvement teams, music boosters, athletic boosters, and building parent-teacher organizations. For additional information, please call the administration office at 891-8185.
