My son has attended Campbell from the beginning, as an incoming Freshman. He has grown within the school, and I am so Thankful to the staff at CHS. Kids r going to be kids, but, CHS helps to guide and transform them into Young Adults, ready for the World. I Rate Campbell High School ~ A++++++!
I was skeptical about sending my daughter to this school at first from all the rumors about it being such a bad school. I have to say I am pretty impressed. The teachers all seem to truly care about the students success and getting them prepared for college. There really hasn't been anything bad happening maybe a fight every once in awhile but that is pretty normal in all high schools. CHS is not a bad school. Maybe some improvement in the athletic area though.
My son went for two weeks and I pulled him out. The school is pathetic and I call it a Jr. prison. I don't know too much of the students and the other parents--as far as their socioeconomic backgrounds--, but the staff treat the children with indifference and harshly. It is like they expect for the students to be criminals when they grow up. I had to homeschool my son while I worked from home until I was able to break my lease and move back to Marietta City Schools. I would love to live in Smyrna because it is closer to my office and nicer looking than Marietta. Anyways, parents beware of buying a home or renting in the jurisdiction if you have kids.
My daughter is a IB student. The ONLY reason why CHS is a good school so 'they say' is because of this Program. If CHS did not have the IB Program it will be a train wreck! The principal Dr. Magee is not involved with these kids at all. The kids are constantly fighting, having food fights and bullying other people kids. Not trying to scare anyone. But this school is a joke. IB is holding this school up. Take your kids else where. Trust me if you let your child go here you will regret. Better make sure they are in the IB Program.
I am a student at CHS and I've herd all the bad things said about this school, none of them are true. I've been going to CHS for 3 years now and the school is amazing. Of course being a high school there are a few fights and those students that want to act out, but that's normal. My favorite thing about the school is the staff. The teachers are very caring and hands on. They stay late or come early for anyone that needs it. The cafeteria workers are very polite and friendly. The custodians are always near by to help you with any mess with a smile in their face. I love this school, and you will too.
CHS has changed a lot since the earlier posts and praises I read here. Unfortunately NOT for the best. IB is of course top notch but everything else is run by out of control students that are able to hi jack the day knowing admin follow up won't be adequate and consequences will be OSS (read: sleep late, no school, excused absence). I feel bad for both the students and faculty who have to live with the nonsense day after day. Too bad the main concern the principal seems to have is to cultivate her image as she climbs the administrative food chain.
I have attended Campbell High School for one semester as a sophomore in the IB Program (which is EXCEPTIONAL). I came from a private school, which I had attended for 11 years. I could not ask for anything better than CHS. The principal isn't as bad as everybody makes her look. Dr. Magee truly does try to make the school as great as she can; students and parents complain because they don't like when bad kids are disciplined. At my old school, I was bullied because I didn't have the self esteem to speak up for myself. Here, it's too big for there to be bullies! It's not too big to make friends, though; the only attitude I've gotten from students I've encountered here is a bright, friendly, and inviting attitude, and the same goes for the teachers, who really aren't as bad as they're made out to be. The teachers care when the students care, and the problems start AT HOME with unmotivated students; the teachers are good and keep their classrooms under control when the STUDENTS cooperate, and then, it is an enormously positive learning environment. It's not sugar-coated; students are prepared for the real world. There are flaws, but no school is exempt from flaws. I love it!!
