    Out of all the schools I have worked at in my 25 years of experience Cameron Elementary is the best. Everyone is very friendly and treated me great right from when I started working there even as a substitute. The principal makes sure that there are many fun activities as a motivation to do well on tests. She also speaks to the children kindly. I noticed how dedicated the teachers are when I work in their classes. Even the lunch staff as well as the staff that took care of the students during lunch is dedicated to the children. During lunch they have a staff member at a particular area which I noticed that they do not gather up and talk to each other since the areas are at least 50 feet away. There is also plenty of shade for the children. They even have a science room as well as a Science day where many are invited including stunt men on bikes to show the velocity of the jumps that are incorporated in the education.

    Cameron school teachers and principal and all staff are great the children come first and they keep parents informed of all activity and they keep the childrens self esteem up with positive language and encouragement. Everyone of staff members are all on the same page . I rate this school as excellent cause everyone cares about our children and as far as I have witnessed they are all great kids because all they want is for someone to say good job!

    Cameron is one of the best schools I have ever been involved with. The principal teachers admin staff PTA and parents are wonderful encouraging and involved. I grew up a teacher's kid I spent my entire life in the staff rooms and classrooms I have seen the way things can go if not every member of the team is on the same page. We are moving out of state and it is unnerving to think that I need to find a new school with the same dedication into each and every student. My husband and MIL were both students at Cameron so this really is a family thing! My family will greatly miss Cameron and the entire staff. I gave 5 stars but there is no end to the rating they deserve...

    The new principal has brought to our students a different outlook toward student moral. Our children have been exposed to new extra curricular activities which I have found to be benifitial toward their education goal. This year I have noticed that my children do not have to be forced into upkeeping their grades. Somewhere they have established the understanding of 'requirements'. Thank you to all Teachers Staff & Principal. For all their tremendous efforts and support in assisting us parents with understanding and communicating effectively with our children. Our children today are the future!

    This is a terrific school. They just got a new principal this year and he is very involved with the children. They have a terrific PTA that works very hard to give the kids great field trips at the end of the year. The teachers at this school really care about the children.

    This school used to be the very best elementary school in the area now I feel like a horrible parent sending my children there and jeopardizing their education these past 2 years. This school needs a new leader and the leader should try to listen to their educators more. The principle that has been at Cameron the last few years in my opinion should not be in the position she is. She has no clue how to treat children from cultures different from hers equal. Thank God my children know right from wrong and know that all people are equal.
