    Camden County HS is an excellent school with many programs for students to excel in many subjects and programs that will prepare them for college military and life challenges. Submitted by a grandparent.

    Camden County High is an excellent school. They expect you to academically achieve and they don't take excuses. They treat the students as young adults and they are afforded Honors/AP classes to excel. I am honored that my child attends CCHS. As having one graduated and one attending I couldn't be happier with the program. If you or your child works hard they will do very well here.

    Camden County High School as a lot of different career like class. It's a HUGE school but you get used to it after awhile. The Teachers are okay I'm not gonna lie there are some teachers that show students no respect at all. A down side to this school is that there is a lot of profanity and some of the students are very judgmental & there are A LOT of fights. But all in all Its a good school and I'm very happy to be a student here. (

    i'm at Saint Marys Middle right now and I can't wait to go to this school next year!My 9th grade friends have told me so many great things about this school i'm SOOO ready to get to this school and it isn't even the 2nd semester for me yet!

    I attended this school myself and could not stand it. I have to agree if it is not about the football players and cheerleaders it doesnt matter. Teachers and staff are rude and disrespectful to the students and parents. I refuse to let my children attend this school.

    This school is more strict than any other school i've attended rules are beyond reasonable the administrative staff abuse their power and treat students and faculty with no respect only as a higher rank. There is a fight between students nearly everyday. and if you are a football player or cheerleader you seem to slip out of the punishment than a normal student would receive. I am currently trying to move out of this town as soon as possible.

    The administration of this school is horrible. Unless your child plays football you are out of luck.

  • (6 years ago)

    Some teachers are great and very helpful to students that want help. On the other hand however the rules are a more strict than most other high schools and they violate the student's right to privacy through a convienient loophole. The administrative staff treat the students with hardly a speck of respect. Running under the 'good 'ol boy's' system most administrators do not show nearly enough respect to their teachers as well.

    Awesome school my kids like it too and that says a lot. Teachers communicate with me regularly and it is a clean profesional environment.

    We moved here from Raleigh NC in 8/06. My high schooler did not want to come here and he has had difficulty adjusting to the superior academics offered at Camden County High. His teachers have not let him slide one bit!! I love the online Pinnacle system that lets me track his grades/attendance/assignment completion DAILY. He of course has not adjusted well to this. I have found that his teachers are wonderfully supportive encouraging have tolerated too much from my own child and have been fair in discipline and strategy. They have been quick to praise him yet hold him accountable for his behavior which often is unacceptable even to me and I'm his mom!!! Although my son may end up in Camden's Alternative school I cannot say enough wonderful things about the high school. Constant teacher dedication A+ sports teams coupled with overly qualified staff makes this a wonderful school.

    This was an excellent school when I went there. I went back to visit for this year's open house and I was amazed by all the changes that have occured - and they are all for the better! I loved this school when I attended and I love it to this day. I am grateful for all of the opportunties that I was presented with at Camden. The teachers are amazing and so is the atmosphere! Camden is a fantastic school!

    With money from the military base the school is never in need. A college-like campus professional offices and well-equipped classrooms make this school superior to nearby county schools. The Performing Arts departments owns a beautiful huge auditorium comparable to the best of the best. Parents are especially involved in the athletic and music booters.

    The school motto says it all... 'A Tradition of Excellence!' Camden High has it all. The curriculum is very well balanced between college prep and career technical programs. The standards are set high for all students in every area. Both the Fine Arts and Athletics programs are well known across the state. The vocational department is the largest in the state. Administration is always striving to implement new ideas improve and stay ahead of the game. The campus is beautiful and well maintained. It is definitely superior in quality.

    Camden is a very great school with high standards set in academics sports and art. The parental involvement is high with letters constantly going home to the parents.

    This school is a excellent school to attend. The quality is overrated. At Camden County High they prepare students for the future. Teachers here help students both inside and outside of the classroom. They challenge you mentally which stimulates the brain for what's to come. The program here is built on success. It offers many classes that most schools don't offer. The fine arts program is awesome and there's a wide variety of extra curricular activities. I love this school. It's my haven.
