This school has got to be one of the worst so called privet schools in Georgia. Their is low moral among staff because not only are they not receiving pay on time if at all but they are threatened that if they ask for their rightfully owed pay they will be fired. Also their is no accountability from the Dean of this school as to why so many children aren't learning in her school. I am a licensed therapist and i have seen so many kids who have attended this so called school just by chance through cases that are not related that i couldn't help but to warn every parent out there that if you are considering enrolling your child into a privet school please do your research first . Thank You.

I think that Cameron is on the right track and doing a good job of moving forward. Cameron is still fairly new so glitches and bumps are to be expected. Bottom line, as all the reviews say, the students learn at Cameron and the teachers are AWESOME. Wouldn't you say that is what makes a school successful? Yes, there are administration/organizational issues, but Dean Martin is trying to iron those things out, as she moves forward. If you want a perfect school...good luck finding one! Maybe these parents in the recent reviews should go to Woodward Academy and pay $25,000. SMH!

I am a parent of a former Cameron Academy student who is very disappointed in this school. My child will not be returning. I had high expectations coming into the school and was let down in all but one area. My child's teacher was amazing. However, the leadership in this school is very poor. They are extremely unorganized and consistently make promises that they can't keep. Example there was no standardized testing at the end of the year. We were not warned about this. Rather, we prepared our children for testing that never happened. Up until the week of the test, we were still being told that it would not happen. I suspect it didn't b/c they could not afford to administer the test. Now, as a parent, I can only pray that my child is prepared for her next grade level. It s sad that I have to get a tutor to ensure that she is.

I am an Educator but I am a parent first. My daughter is in the 2 year old program and her teacher is EXCELLENT. Her teacher has taught her so many skills and definitely teaches the whole child. During registration, I was promised technology, science lab lessons and that the tuition would not be increased under any circumstances; none of the promises were kept. I paid supply fees and I supplied my daughter's teacher with supplies throughout the year. There is absolutely no technology, not even email for communication. The Office staff is the worst and the Dean lacks appropriate interpersonal skills and the knowledge base to deal effectively with parents of all ethnicities and socio-economic status. Again, my daughter's teacher is the BEST and shoul dprobably consider sharing her skills with kids at another facility worthy of her expertise. I will NOT be returning next school term.

Very disappointed with the school and the administration. The list can go on and on about reasons not to send your child here. Unruly upperclassmen that treat the school like its under their rule (cursing, no uniforms, smoking etc), extremely low teacher morale, cold classrooms, no technology, no communication with parents. Lots of promises given and hardly any were delivered. As a paying parent it was extremely hard to support an organization that push parents concerns aside and not putting the children first when making decisions. We made a hard decision to withdraw or child, dont put your family through this!

I am a parent and staff member of Cameron! It is sad that parents have to go online to disrespect schools. We have alot of unhappy people right now-because we are finally putting our foot down to irresponsible students and parents! We are going to have a brand new school-with a brand new school year! We need students and parents who will support Cameron 100%! Parents need to step up.... or step out! Dean Martin is and will continue to make the changes needed to improve Cameron. She has a vision for Cameron. She will get Cameron where it needs to be! She will get the staff who has this vision! Oprah Winfrey said it best ' Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down'

Wow! Go Cameron! We have seen what is coming!!! Cameron has and will continue to go further! Don't expect it to be easy to get in next year! Dean Martin will be much more selective to students and parents! Cameron is spending a great deal of time, energy, and money. Cameron needs ONLY parent and students who want and deserve to be at Cameron! Good Job Cameron!!!

I think parents need to work harder to support Dean Martin and her vision for the school. She has a good heart and is doing the best that she can, with what she has. She loves the school and the kids. I do agree that some of her staff needs to be let go. They can be very unprofessional and don't have the background to work in the private school setting. They are the ones bringing the school down and making bad first impressions. It's not her or the teachers!! The teachers work hard and love the kids.

My child is currently enrolled at Cameron Academy and I am very disappointed with the broken promises my husband and I received when considering Cameron. The administrative staff is very unprofessional and seem to lack education and common courtesy. The Dean seems to only be concerned with having a school, but not able to run a school and pay for the staff needed. The best thing about the school is the Teachers, they really care about the students. However, I will not be re-enrolling my child for the upcoming school year and I know quite a few parents that will going down that same road. I am counting the days until the last day of school and no more Cameron Academy. Very Disappointed for the amount of money I am spending for tuition. A private school running like an average school (minus the Teachers) should be FREE!!!! I want a refund!

I am pleased with the school academically as well as the extra curricular activities offered to elementary students. However, they still have work to do where communication with the parents is concerned. Also, they need to join some of the financial aid organizations, so that parents can apply for financial assistance and scholarships.

For the most part I have been pleased with Cameron Academy. I think it still has a ways to go in 'raising the educational expectation' as far as private schools go, but realize that this is only the school's second year. I do however like the 'family atmosphere' and my child really enjoys coming to school. From a parent standpoint, I would like to see more home/school communication as well. I am also concerned with turnover of teachers.

I'm not going to defend this nonsense! Obviously.... they felt the need all in one week... to be disgraceful to Cameron! We are proud to be a part of the Cameron family. We was more than impressed with all the staff and changes to the building!

It is funny that all of these reviews are from this past week....... parents wanting their paperwork! If you look to the school year-there are excellent comments! It is sad that parents don't have anything better to do-than disgrace a school! Cameron will be fine without you! They are bigger and better. Next year will an exciting year. The choices made for teachers are excellent. I had the opportunity to meet most them. Excellent education, teaching history, and an excitement for these students! Great Choice Dean Martin! I have two kids at Cameron! I couldn't be happier! Dean will continue to do what is best for these kids!

My son is in Kindergarten and we have been over the top satisfied with the staff. The teachers are energetic, engaged, positive and truely have the children's best interest at heart. My child is learning at a pace that surpasses my every expectation. Dean Martin has always been available to meet with us and has addressed our concerns/ideas quickly and professionally. We wish Cameron Academy the very best and we will continue to support the school by being 150% active participants in the PTA and other organizations.

This is my son s first year in Middle School and I must say it has been a smooth transition. If I had to describe Cameron Academy using three words I would say... engaged, nurturing and proactive. Clearly, with any new school or business there will be many kinks to iron out as it just come with the territory. However, the common denominator for the Cameron team is promotion of a positive learning environment for all students. And I think that alone will take the families of Cameron a long way.

I find that there are a lot of unhappy teachers working at this school. Most of the teachers are very qualified and very good teachers. It seems to be a very big communication problem with the school. I find that there is more emphasis on sports than academics. This school will not last very long if the adminstration does not get their stuff together. When the teachers are unhappy they are not as effective teaching as they would be if they were. I hope that there are no more broken promises being made to the parents of Cameron Academy. There promise technology but my child has yet to go to a computer class.

I find this school extremely personable! The administration and teachers do an excellent job. The Dean is very involved! She has given my child an acceptable, enjoyable, and overall excellent place for education. She makes it a point to work with the cheerleaders and support the athletes by cheering on the sidelines or working in the concession stand. Sports and performing arts are very important. It allows students to excel in all different areas and motivates them to do well in the academics. I am proud that we chose this school for our son. HIghschool is a critical time in developing a young man! Great Job Dean Martin!

I find this school's adminastration staff to be very unprofessional and out of touch with it's teachers. I've talked to several parents that are happy with the teachers but dissatisfied with the dean and the way she runs the school. The Dean has given alot of promises but has not gone through with them. Like field trips and science labs.
