Calhoun High School is a public high school in Hardin, Illinois that is part of the Calhoun Community Unit School District 40. Calhoun serves the communities of Hardin, Batchtown, Hamburg, Kampsville, Michael, and Mozier.[1][2]

Athletics[edit]

The school has five state championships on record in team athletics and activities: football in 1992-1993 (1A) and 1993-1994 (1A), girls basketball in 2015-2016 (1A), and girls softball in 2015 (1A) and 2016 (1A.) They have also had three other state appearances: football state runner-up in 1986-1987, girls softball state fourth place in 2011, and girls basketball state runner-up in 2014-2015. Due to its small enrollment, Calhoun cooperates with nearby Brussels High School or Pleasant Hill High School for some athletics (Brussels for football, Pleasant Hill for track and field).[1][3][4]

History[edit]

Calhoun High School was formed out of the consolidation of Hardin High School and other schools.[5]
