Camelot is truly a wonderful school. It is really scary when your child has to go there, especially when the child has a disability. I had heard bad things about it, but the ESE lady Miss Kemp told me to go and see the school befor eI made up my mind and I did. It has been the greatest thing the school district ever did for my son. He had trouble with his attitude and getting referals since middle school. Camelot really turned around his behavior and attitude and helped his grades improve. He got much more help with his reading than in the regular school. Mr. Stem, Mr. Max and Mr. Lewis and Mrs. Hall are great. It is very strict, but that makes it safe and keeps them under control . I wish the regular schools in the county could be like Camelot.
Camelot has made a huge difference in my sons life. He is more motivated to be a leader and display leadership skills not just in school but also in his daily life. He has matured and appreciates the teachings and advice the school has given and showed him. Mr. Hampton, Mr. Lindsey, Mr. Morris, and a couple of others were very active and supportive in and to my sons life. Their genuine passion for life for children for teaching showed in every encounter ive had and my son has had with them. I appreciate their work. I know its not easy. But these guys put aside everything outside of work and brought their A game to work and blessed my son with their talents and their love for their jobs. I'm more then appreciative of what they have done for my son I'm eternally grateful.
My review of Camelot Academy is that it is a good school that is assigned a difficult task. I also believe that once students are put in this school, a stigma is placed on them. When they are tran- sitioned back to a regular school and the smallest infraction by them, they're immediately placed back in Camelot. They are guilty for the rest of school life. There are no degrees of what the student offense is, they are packed off to the school for 'bad kids'. Some children get chance after chance to participate in the "In Leiu Of Program", in their primary school, but others don't. For this they must ride a bus 100 miles round trip daily. If a parent don't have transportation and the student get ill or an accident occur, you are between a rock and a hard place. For a school like this, my opinion is that it should be situated mid county, and Molino, Fl would be a better location. There are no clubs in school for the students to have any kind of outlet, such as drama club, glee club or anything,the enrollment count will prevent them from any sport teams. I am sure a number of them can sing, dance and act or maybe even write poetry. You'ill never know unless you ask them.
I like Camelot personally. My daughter has been going there 2 years, if there is something going on I know about it right then, I even get a call if she's starting her day off wrong. I have personal numbers if at anytime I'm at work & just want to know how she's doing. They have positive things for the kids to work towards like becoming a Tiger Shark, Girl Circle and Townhouse. So Camelot is not as bad as people make them out to be there are some wonderful people working there to help the kids literally public school feel are lost causes......Thanks Camelot
I heard some bas things about Camelot like they beat the kids and stuff. I was upset when my son had to go there, but I see now that stuff is all made up. It's a quiet strict school and the staff is all nice and really works with the kids. My son is liking to go to school for the first time since 6th grade. Camelot is great.
Camelot is great this year. My daughter started going there last year and it wasn't as good. The new principal and new staff people are doing real well now. It has helped my child alot with her attutude and getting along with other girls. Her grades are better to, and she gets more help and attention than at her old school.
CAMELOT NEED TO BE CLOSE DOWN.THEY STILL HITTING THEM KIDS I HOPE I WILL BE ABLE TO HELP THE KIDS CAUSE GETTING BEATING BY SOMEONE THAT'S SURPOST TO KEEP YOU SAFE IS SAD.I CAN HELP CALL 6077459.I DO HAVE A LAWSUIT ON CAMEALOT
My son will be attending this school. I would like more information about the school
Absolutely horrible school. Granted, a school for youth with discipline problems. My son comes from a professional family who got into trouble. He's not a thug, but he comes home with bruises and injuries from bullies and the teachers do nothing about it. This, I believe, is a crime and should be investigated, but because the youth are "problem" youth, the school system doesn't care.
