My child goes to this school now. I requested that he be transferred to another classroom which has yet to happen. The teacher is loud and bitter. This i noticed when i dropped him off and brushed it off and figured maybe she was in a bad mood or off to a bad morning. I requested that she stop yelling at my child and complained to the office by the end of the week when my child did not want to go to school. than the following week my child gets a letter sent home about gang activity. Seems strange that after i make a complaint she makes these accusations when she not once called me or reported any such behavior or concerns in these areas about my child. So i like the school but this teacher in particular is very incompetent in my opinion.

I have two children who go to Campbell after a ruff start with their first school. Campbell teachers, administration, and staff have been amazing for our children. Their is a certain expectation for everyone that steps on campus at Campbell, students to the parents as well as the entire staff. Our children look forward to many more years at Campbell.

Our family moved here from out of State a year ago and enrolled our children at Cloves C. Campbell Elementary. Every teacher was engaged and energetic providing a great learning experience for each of our 3 children. I am very pleased with the education my children received and would refer any member of my family or dear friends to this school. Standards are set and encouraged. Each child is challenged to progress and learn and they develop a passion for what it is they are being taught.

My daughter attended this school for Kinder and 1st Grade. Her first year was difficult because she had a teacher who just didn't care about her success. The beginning of her 1st grade experience was starting to took bad until she was transferred to Ms. Jackson's class. My child began to make great academic improvements under Ms. Jackson's instruction. That all changed when administration placed another teacher in the classroom to work with Ms. Jackson. My child began not wanting to come to school because of the change, however she was still eager to work with Ms. Jackson everyday. All faith I had in this school has diminished, administration disrupts the culture of a classroom and from what I understand they have let go of Ms. Jackson a great teacher. Administration does not want to employ motivating forward thinking educators. My child will not be attending this this fall.

My children just completed their first and last year at Campbell. After a difficult year trying to work with teachers and administrators, I have come to the conclusion that neither teachers nor staff are willing to work with parents who want their children to receive a quality education coupled with an enjoyable experience with school overall. Furthermore, it seems that the administrators are accustomed to dealing with parents who don't realize the shortcomings in the system, and therefore when educucated and experienced parents point out flaws in the system we are met with blatant disrespect and hostility. This was by far the worst experience I have had with any school my children have ever attended.

Too many student to teacher ratio. Not enough books for the students, therefore unable to take books home. Gives the children a disadvantage for those who struggle.

This school is outstanding. It is the role model for the entire Roosevelt District. Hats off to Ms. Fig Stew and Ms. Hedrick for their jobs as administrators.

Well both of my children went to Clovis C. Campbell and I thought that not all of the teachers were as friendly as they should've been. I felt that they judged my children and because of that my children did not get the education they were sent there to get. I tried to talk to the principal and she was very rude and; more into taking up for her teachers who admitted that they were under staffed as far as P.E. I plan on sending them to another school with better education.

Campbell school has come a long way! great improvements overall. Still lacking in some areas. Still not enough after school activities and parent involvement. Also security still needs to be worked on. Do not assume all adults are parents. Question unknown visitors. New principal is great. Teachers are making a possitive difference. My one only suggestion to the principal, teachers and staff would be to be friendlier with parents.

I am a substitute teacher. This is the only school in the entire district I would have my child attend. The classes are clean and cheerful. The staff is friendly. The children have all the needed resources to be successful. The kids I have taught are on grade level and want to learn. The kids are actually respectful too! So the teachers are doing something right at that school. The school also seems to have inexpensive things for families to do like movie night at the school.

Our child is in the headstart program due to an IEP and I have not been very impressed overall. Communication seems to be lacking, except for parents who pick up their child every day. They also don't have as many computers as I'd like.

Campbell Elementary seems to be a good school in my opinion. I feel that it doesn't get as much publicity for all the good things the teachers and principal does for the students.

This school is a joke. I had to pull my son out after attending for only 3 months. He was not learning at all. The teachers are inexperienced and should not be educating children. Lack of communication with parents is also a big problem.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 6, 2005

Communication by Principal and District as a whole relatively non-existent. One day notice for most extracurricular activities. Initiatives for parental involvement are dismal. Parental and teacher concerns are met with skepticism and ignored. In a word, I am ashamed and embarassed by the leadership and overall quality of the school. I will offer one point of hope - the apparent commitment of the some of the teaching staff.

This school has a lot to offer. The teachers, for the most part, are well qualified, caring, loving, and understanding of the various cultural and emotional aspects/concerns of teaching in the area. The principal needs an assistant principal to help with the daily demands of running a successful school. Obviously the scores are improving each year, which is very encouraging. The media has a lot of negative comments to make and therefore the school nor district are given a fair chance. It would be helpful if there was more parental involvement with the students and at the school site. It has always been my experience that the teachers welcome parents and would appreciate their in-put as well as their presence in the classrooms and on campus. I think there is a need for the school and community to form a closer and better alliance for all to benefit.

Security needs a bit of improvement, also kids need to be kept inside more in hot wheather. Staff needs to ackowledge parents. Principal needs to be more involved with parents and recieving children in the mornings.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Arizona used the Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) to test students in reading and mathematics in grades 3 through 8 and 10, writing in grades 5, 6, 7, and 10, and in science in grades 4, 8 and 10. GreatSchools' profiles currently show AIMS mathematics, reading and writing results. 2013 AIMS grade 10 results represent on-track 10th graders for the 2013 test year. AIMS is a standards-based test, which means that it measures how well students have mastered Arizona learning standards. Students must pass the grade 10 AIMS in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to meet or exceed state standards on the test.
