I am extremely pleased with this school. They are awesome about keeping parents in the loop and the curriculum is outstanding, in my opinion. The are following the Common Core Standards and have a dress code, both of which contribute to a great learning environment.
My daughter is in her second year at Campbell and loves it! She's has great experiences with both the teachers and the administration. She really enjoys the interactive and hands-on approach to teaching at the school. She enjoys extracurricular activities and clubs as well as the schools focus on academics at the annual pep rally and quarterly honor roll field trip. The new music wing is lovely and equipped with new equipment for the kids to enjoy. We are both very pleased with this school!
I was highly impressed with CMS for my daughters 6th grade year 2011-2012 BUT this year for 7th grade is AWFUL. My child is an A - B student so when she came home with an F as her final grade I was shocked and disappointed. During the 1st quarter I never received any notification my child was failing, no work went incomplete and homework was submitted daily. What's REALLY going on? These 7th grade teachers need to get it together!
I am retracting my previous review that offered a glowing testimony to this school. Since my son entered 7th grade, it is clear that the level of teaching and professionalism have taken a nose dive. I addressed several issues I have had with a teacher with the principal and she dismissed it. Clearly a school that does not care about its students.
Highly recommend! Excellent school and excellent teachers! Challenging and really am pleased with how much my child has thrived at this school.
Contrary to the parent comments & ratings during & prior to July 2011, our son is thriving at CMS and enjoys the learning environment offered through his advanced content/gifted classes. We selected CMS over the nearby public & private schools because of its diversity, advanced content/gifted teachers & administration. 2011-2012 was a fantastic year of change at CMS during which a new principal started, the Student Attire was implemented & enforced, and it was Year One of the implementation of the International Baccalaureate Program. We expect to see more changes in 2012-2013 with the addition of more highly rated teachers, involved parents and further immersion in the IB program. We are confident our rising 8th grader will have the ability to earn a spot in one of Cobb County s High School Magnet Programs - highly-competitive, rigorous academic programs. As with any public (or private) school in this Country, parent involvement first with their student and then as a volunteer with the PTSA and administration is critical to a student s and school s success. I challenge other parents, teachers and students to comment, rate this school, get involved and put CMS first!
I was very disappointed by this school for my 6th grader last school year. With this being her first year from out of the whole elementary school world I wanted this to be a good experience for her. I was totally wrong. The staff, administration, teachers, and principal, I felt could care less about the students or the parents. The students felt bullied by the teachers and when we would complain to the principal it was ALWAYS the students fault, no one ever wanted to listen to what we really had to say. I could imagine how things were when we werent there with her. I would not recommend this school to anyone accept maybe the school board to come in there and do some inspecting of their own. With so many complaints after awhile its not the student or the parents with the issue, its the school and its horrible staff.
Campbell Middle School is a disgrace to the school board system and YES I may understand there are WORSE schools but I DONT CARE I dont live in the other schools zone. I pay GOOD money to live in a very nice part of Smyrna but the community and schools are so RATCHED. The principal MS.MGhee is a BASKET CASE and could hardly function, the staff is rude and disrespectful and SPANISH is the first language spoken there, my poor child questions if this is AMERICA or MEXICO!
Campbell Middle has real struggles educating students with Learning Challenges. Most teachers see these children as nuisances and constantly complain about them. They have trouble following their Individual Education Plans, and many of the teachers are very unprofessional when speaking with parents using 'jargon' and words such as lazy, just doesn't care, and crazy. These are words that should never come out of any teacher's mouth especially to a parent! IF YOU HAVE A CHILD WITH ANY TYPE OF LEARNING CHALLENGE PLEASE AVOID CAMPBELL MIDDLE!
The principal is very rude and doesn't have respect for the parents. Can I just imagine what goes on during the day. She is the head of the school, she set the tune of the school. I wouldn't recommend this school at all. I know see why most parent in this area sent their kids to private school.
The administration at this school is less than satifactory. They allow the teachers to treat the children and parents with very little respect. This is not a great school by any means!!
Im a student at tis school and so far im really impressed with it everybody is nice there. You might run into those bad students but really just push them out you mind and get on with life. The 6th grade teachers are extreamly nice.I have great grades in the classes, they explain every thing so good to where you can understand it. I would recommend you put your child in this school. All the rumors about the school is wrong, they got a new principal and she keeps the school in order. Its a great skool and this is from a child and my mom and dad and all my family.
this school is very unorganized the administraition is very disrespectful... some teachers like to teach and some don't!!!!
I go to campbell and i love it the teachers are nice sweet and they love to help students when we need help
My daughter just completed the first year at this school. So far am happy with her and her acomplishments, thanks to her principal and her teachers. I am pleased and looking forward tp the next sch. Year with hopes that the school will provide all the extra help that was provided in the past. Ps the dress code especially with the boys pants hanging low sill needs to be address. Thanks.
Both of my sons go there after moving from another state. Just started this year. The education is way better than where we are from and my children seem happy. The only thing is my one son was having problems with math and after discussing this with his teacher he suggested he just was'nt applying hiself instead of maybe considering that his way of teaching was too advanced. My son has never had a problem in math. The teacher did put him in a supplemental math class that teaches the same thing and he's doing great in his class. My son said the teacher made it fun and finally was excited about math. However, there is tutoring available and some online classes that can be done to help. So I felt even though my son was discouraged there was help. So far so good!
My notion is teachers don't offer their time to spend with children who don't understand the work. There is no help provided.
I am happy with the education system set up in Campbell Middle, my son started out last year in the 6th grade and I found it to be a very good school. The reinforce the zero tolerance rule, while offering the students an array of extracurricular activities, like Band and Basketball, football, performing arts. The school welcomes parent participation. I choose this school because it was very close to the type of education my son received up North in Rhode Island at CVS Highlander Charter. I would recommend this school to parents who like a school to keep you in the loop of your child tenure there both online and through the mail. I could go on and on but I do want to say this Campbell is a real learning institute for growth both personally and academically. I love Campbell Go Titans!
This was the first year my daughter went to a Cobb County School and we found it to be a nightmare. Some of her teachers were nice but the rest were a nightmare. It got so bad I sat in one of my daughters classes to see what was going on. The kids were all over the place and the teacher had no control. My daughter never had discipline problems until we got to Campbell she was suspended twice, in detention a few times, ISS twice all in the same year. Since we've left things have been wonderful she has a new outlook on school and is doing exceptional. I see the child I saw a year before Campbell who was excited about school and learning. I wouldn't recommend this school for any child.
this school is an ok school... the environment isnt safe and clean at all.. but it does have kind and good teachers... all tho i dont reccomend u sending your kid to this school ... its still a possibility... and there r alot of extra programs!
