We moved from a rural school in the area to Camdenton High School specifically for our child. One entering college before we moved was seriously impacted by the lack of curriculum from the previous school. CHS offers everything necessary for college preparation. Plus this school is welcoming to new students. Adjustment has been easy. We have never regretted the move. Academics, arts, and sports programs are all top notch.

The school has excellent classes and programs, just about every teacher is dedicated and supportive, and otherwise its the best way to get together with your friends and receive an education.

This schools staff are addicted to authority. The community is based around money and sports. If you have a very well financial stance, and your child is good in athletics this school would be fine for you. However, if you are in the opposite position, I'd stay away from Camdenton.

This district has put a great deal of effort into providing an excellent academic environment for their students and now they have put forth the effort to build an excellent campus for their students. You can tell the arts are as valued as sports and that every learning situation has been studied and the environment has been provided for an excellent opportunity for each student.

The curriculum in Camdenton is top rate and teaches our children everything they will need to get them ahead in life. The teachers do tend to lean towards students who are easy to teach and do not seem to have difficulties in grasping the lessons or concepts of school rules. Some pass students who may even benefit from a second year with the same class. Waiting for them to figure this out in high school is to late for some of these kids. There are after school tutoring classes but children need to be exposed to current levels of curriculum not levels two or three years below their current grade. These classes are supposed to help them catch up to their peers in other states not create an acceptable lower level for this area.

I graduated from CHS, but didn't appreciate the quality until I was exposed to the rest of the world and the poor education found in other parts of the country. Camdenton gave me a great base of knowledge and skills to participate in society.

Camdenton High School offers a fairly wide variety of classes, most of the teachers are excellent and the students have the opportunity to learn a lot. However the school may be a little too focused on sports, the academic level of this school is excellent and the attention that the students recieve from most of the teachers falls hardly short of extraordinary. It truly is a great school. -J.S. eleventh grade student who has been attending Camdenton schools since kindergarten.

The quality of education offered to students at Camdenton High School is second to none. The diversity of programs offered matches the diversity of the educational level of the students. Faculty and staff are professionally prepared to make the classroom a supportive and motivating experience to challenge the students to attain their highest level of learning. Outside activities are varied to offer all students a chance to participate in those that fit their personal abilities and interests. My child received an excellent education at Camdenton High and was able to gain admission to a highly-selective university in the east.
