When I was at Camden High School I felt at home with the students even though I was only there for a short period of time. The teachers were also very involved in trying to make sure the students read and understood the criteria. Before I left Camden High School my band teacher was so involved he through me an Italian themed going away party. Why was Italian themed, because that's where I moved. I am from a family that is part of the military that moved to Vicenza High School.

This is my senior year at Camden High School, and I can honestly say that it is a great choice for any teenager. It doesn't matter what your background is, the staff at this school are dedicated to making sure you get SOMEWHERE in life. The one thing I would love to see happen at Camden High is more community service projects. There should be a plethora of other choices for community service other than the animal shelter. Overall, Camden High is a great high school and I'm proud to say that I will be a Bulldog Alumni on May 30, 2020.
Camden High School was an amazing school. Being that Camden is a small town to begin with, everyone was pretty close, including the staff. Teachers at Camden High School were extremely caring. The school was like one close knit family. I graduated in 2016 and in 2015, 3 of our classmates were killed in 3 different car crashes. It impacted the school, and community profoundly, but also brought a lot of people much closer, which is what I love most about my alma mater. Teachers like Lisa Twitty, Rebecca Rundlett, and Casey Faulkenberry got me ready for college and I will forever appreciate them.
