My child is having a good experience at school, but there's room for improvement. There is an adversarial atmosphere between parents and teachers, and between teachers and administration that make the teaching/learning experience much more difficult than it should be. In short, the one thing that would make the classroom at CMS more effective would be for teahcers and parents to support one another in the education process. Every teacher and administrator at this school wants every student to succeed. We parents need to nurture that attitude and help CMS achieve that goal.

I do not feel the teachers give the concerned amount of time to students to learn. There are a lot of students that need help learning. The teachers act like they care but it really shows in the student s grades. I also am pulling my children out of the school until the school board wakes up and take a real look at the school teachers.

Cameron schools are the best in the area. There is individuality established in each classroom with 18-20 students per teacher. The teachers do take time to work with the children, and offer positive influences to the children. I would recommend this school to all my friends.

This school does not take take the bulling of their children seriously. I have been told by assiant principle that they do not have the resources. i think they need to get the resources it is a major problem at this school. As a matter of fact we have to move because it has gotten so bad.

In 2012-2013 Missouri used the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math and communication arts, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The MAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Missouri.
