The combination of statuesque structures along with modern facilities and the latest technology makes Calhoun Middle the best-kept secret of the Denton Independent School District. Nestled on the edge of Denton’s Historical District, it exemplifies a true campus atmosphere – similar to that of a community college.
Calhoun, an International Baccalaureate World School, is a major part of the district’s commitment to IB education. The staff at Calhoun has a special energy targeted toward young teens because they have great expectations for every student to become an IB graduate.
Denton High School Assistant Principal Paul Martinez has been named the new principal of Calhoun Midle School. Mr. Martinez will be replacing Dr. Carlos Ramirez, who has taken the deputy superintendent’s position in another district.
