    Camden Middle School. My granddaughter whom I am raising is in the 7th grade there. I have always had a good responses from the staff and teachers at this school. We recently moved here at the end of the school year and she was anxious but felt right at home the first day she went there. I will need a little more time to really be able to say if there should be improvements but I feel that this school has the children's best interest and their education is the number one priority. I like that the school is within walking distance and that there are school police there to watch over the safety of the children and staff. Thank you to the teachers and staff of this school for giving my granddaughter the best education here at this school.

    Bad- - It's very overcrowded i have been there and at dismissal students are running down the hallways and you can barely get through the crowd of students trying to go home(hallways are packed) - No REAL A.P and gifted programs. I learn the same thing average and some things SPECIAL ED students are learning. - no extracurriculars- other than art technology PE and band(which last 9 weeks except for band) students have no foriegn language and in technology you take turns using computers PE teachers don't care if you don't play and they don't actually let us play sports until after 20 min have passed of our 50 minute extracurriculars. - Science and Social Studies- You switch from Science to social studies every 9 weeks and vice versa. You forget some of what you learn. - Math English and science or social studies(whichever you are taking) last 2 HOURS EACH. which is more than what you need considering we spend 30 minutes of that time doing nothing. This school was disappointing and I will switch schools next year. my opinion georgia standards are LOW....but some ga public schools are great and sadly this one isn't the students cuss and get into fights every other day

    If you want your child to fail send them to Camden Middle School. The "teaching" is comprised of nothing but worksheets. We caught a teacher sleeping in a snuggie in the classroom and the principal watching tv with his feet on the desk. This behavior and lack of professionalism is evident throughout the school. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone who wants their child to succeed.

    Camden Middle is a wonderful school. I have communication with all of my daughter's teachers via email. I also can look up her grades for every single class. Teachers are wonderful and care for the children's concerns. Teachers are always willing to help struggling students with one on one help.

    The school will not advise when your child is slipping in class or arrange meetings with the teachers when you request it. Attendance is taken with haphazardness with kids often reported absent when they are they there or late. Excusable notes are lost and worst of all NOT forwarded to Family Services. ScaryScarystuff.

    This is an average school. They spend more time disciplining for minor infractions than teaching. You'll hear about it if your child chewed gum in class but they won't email you if he/she is having academic problems. The Georgia standards are poor. There is a lot of 'cooperative learning' but there are no cooperative tests. Kids have to learn together but they must also be able to think on their own. Camden Middle is another over crowded school along with the high school.

    I have had excellent communication with my daughter's teachers. They email me when she isn't showing her full potential and if I have a question about homework or school work they are very good by either phone or email.

    It is very hard to stay in contact with the teachers and if your student is struggling there is no interest in helping them to acheive yet alone determine why they are struggling in the first place. I would rather home school my children.
