Camden City Public Schools Reviews

I been attending Camden City public schools for 11 years and so far my experience has been memorable. I enjoy the brotherhood and how there is always someone there for you when you're in need. I especially enjoy the extra curriculars. The band has been my heart for 8 years and it helped my development and I watched the program keep many off the street. Another feature teachers are the teachers. They're want for the kids to comprehend what is being taught is impeccable. They always take the extra mile and either stay after school, use their lunch break, or even come back on Saturdays to help us get what we need done in order to succeed and be prepared for standardized tests. However, one thing I would lobe to havr changed is the Board of Education's honesty. Their has been many cases where they have said things were to happen and then never done it. Its created a little friction between the students and BOE. A little change in that area wouldn't hurt.

Being that I myself am a student enrolled in the Camden Public school district, I can say firsthand that although the schools are not perfect, they do try to create a conducive work environment where students as well as faculty feel that it is a safe space where they can both work together to achieve a common goal. Sure, there are things that can change such as quality of school lunches and certain school policies, but as the years pass I'm sure the necessary corrections will be made.
My younger siblings attend school in the Camden City District and they had an endless amount of opportunities in sports, arts, and academics. The school district has been working hard to create ways to improve the education and welfare of the children in Camden. There are still flaws because it's a poor city, but it is making improvements. I also admire the diversity in the schools and how they accommodate the high Hispanic population in the city.
