My daughter will soon be completing her 8th grade year at Campbell Middle School. She attended Campbell all three years. I was not thrilled with one of the guidance counselors. Other than that, my daughter, who is always on the honor roll, had no problems at all. The teachers and administrators have been responsive and professional. All these horror stories I heard about Campbell turned out not to be true for my daughter. I would recommend the school to anyone.

my son attended the school for 5 weeks he began failing. the teachers did not explain things! he got in trouble for small things like sharpening a pencil or not being able to get paperwork out of his book bag when they already had sat down. I had teachers calling me everyday about things that shouldn't even have been a problem and 1 teacher even sounded drunk one evening. I pulled my son out of that school quickly I recommend nobody put their child in the school. I held my breath every time I picked my son up due to the way the kids are fighting and cussing and pushing each other around after school right in front of the school everyday.

When I learned that my child would be attending an inner-city middle school, I was against it. However, I have since then changed my mind about Campbell Middle. Campbell is an awesome school. Campbell Middle is a place the teachers really care about our children. They are dedicated to success.

My son went to Campbell first under the gifted program and we had problems. However he did do well when he was in the 8th grade because he had teachers that believed in him. Now my daughter attends Campbell and she loves it. She is doing much better academically than when she was in elementary school and has made many friends. There are problems with Campbell like any other middle school. The majority of the students are from poor families and the staff tries to do what they can to help them. There is a big emphasis on the FCAT (standard testing in Florida).

My child is now in the 7th grade and the support from the teachers are horriable and it is very difficult on my child to get help beause no one wants to help her. If we ask for help it won't happen. The SAC & PTA boards are terrible and we never have enough help with the parents in the school to help the kids or teachers.

This middle school is just so terrific to my child. I couldn't imagine my child being in any other middle school but this one. I'm so proud of my child because of all of the wonderful things that are taught here at the middle school.

I graduated from the old school about 5 years ago. I dont know if the new school is any different now but I did not like the school while I was there. Few teachers made any impact whatsoever on me as well as my peers. There was violence, food fights, classes were huge, floods, & saftey was an issue.. it was just an all around nightmare. Campbell was terrible & I was happy to leave.

This is a beautiful new school with great teachers who want the best for their students. Any child who attends here will be going to a top notch school and should be proud of it.

I feel that Campbell needs to do more to help our children feel safer while at school. Our children will learn more effectively in a safer environment. Children need to feel secure with who they are as people regardless of differences to their peers.

I graduated from Campbell a few years ago and I still miss it. It was the best school ever. I made some life long friends at that school. The atmosphere was great, the teachers were awesome, and there was lots of activities to be involded in. I was in band for three years, and even though it was awful sometimes (band camp and practices) I would do it all over again if I had the chance. The school spirit at Campbell is great. I remember the intermural games and how loud we would all be during one of the games of flag football or dodgeball. The adminstration here is awesome. Even though Papa Spartan is no longer the principal, I'm sure his dreams for the school are being carried out. If you are looking for a middle school for your child to attend, I would highly recomend Campbell.

Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
