Callaway High School is located at 601 Beasley Road in Jackson, Mississippi. Callaway is one of seven high schools in the Jackson Public School District, the second largest school district in the state of Mississippi.
Built in 1966, Callaway was named after the late Robert M. Callaway, a Lafayette County native. He began his career teaching Choctaw Indians in the mountains of McCurtain County, Oklahoma. Before assuming duties as principal of Liberty Grove School, later H.V. Watkins Elementary in Jackson, he taught at Darling in Quitman County and Pocahontas in Hinds County. He was principal at Watkins from 1936-1956.
Philosophy & Welcome
Callaway High School is dedicated to providing all students with the opportunity to excel in each academic area. The administration, teachers, and staff at Callaway High School are focused on creating an educational environment in which students have the opportunity to routinely achieve above the norm.
In addition, we believe in holding all students accountable who fail to assume the personal and individual responsibility necessary to achieve. Teachers, administrators, students, and parents must share the goal of achieving educational success.
- To provide a rigorous education that will enable our students to succeed in life.
- To provide the social experiences that enable our students to effectively collaborate.
- To teach our students to speak and write with conviction and appropriately within various settings.
- To teach our students to be problem solvers and to think critically in all situations.
- To develop a post-secondary plan for each student based on strengths, weaknesses, and student interest.
- To provide effective mentorship that will foster the growth and development of each student into a positive citizen of any community.
- To ensure that students can competently use, explain, and demonstrate the proper use of technology through oral presentation, demonstrations, and application.
