Calhoun County Middle/High School is a coeducational public school serving grades 5 - 12 in Mount Zion, West Virginia. In addition to the Middle/High School there are two elementary schools. The elementary schools are located at Arnoldsburg and Pleasant Hill.[2]


Calhoun County High School was originally erected in the township of Grantsville, West Virginia. Later on, due to an aging building, a new school building was constructed in Mount Zion, West Virginia. The newly constructed building, in addition to providing updated facilities, changed the structure of the Calhoun Education System.

Recent Events 2012-2014[edit]

The Calhoun school system as been plagued with rising dept over the past few years. Despite financial problems, the Calhoun County Board of Education, in 2012, commissioned the building of the Arnoldsburg School. The Arnoldsburg elementary school was completed in 2013, with state of the art furnishings. Nothing from the old building was moved to the new structure. In 2014, the county faces a deficit of over 800,000 dollars. With the rising dept, and the lose of students, the board of education as proposed a new levy to raise the needed funds from Calhoun County residence. In the wake of the financial upheaval many of the counties extracurricular programs are at risk of being discontinued.[4]
