I moved to Missouri in 2013 from a different state, and went to this school for the 2013-2014 school year. Honestly, this was the best school year ever for me. I move a lot, so I have to make new friends each year. The students were always willing to help, and I made tons of new friends:) The teachers were super nice, and really funny. My counselors were amazing, and were always willing to help. The cafeteria food was pretty good. I participated in the awards assembly movie, and it was so much fun with music from bands, and the MC's. I even won two awards; a plaque and a metal! I wish the school offered 7th graders to do more sports like the 8th graders do, and add more sports in general like soccer & lacrosse etc. One thing I didn't like about this school, were that the 8th graders were very stuck up. They always thought they were better than the 7th graders, because they were in a higher grade, especially in sports. Also, the school is very small compared to where I came from. I think they should remodel the school. Other than that, I love the school, staff, and everything about it. I won't be there next year, but hopefully you can use this review for your help!(:

Campbell has the best teachers. They are energetic, active, and caring. The students love them and that keeps the kids involved in school. It's hard to imagine, but the year my daughter started 7th grade, they had over 90 kids on the cross-country team. Can you imagine that many boys and girls wanting to run over a mile a day? just for fun. The staff is great and I give them my thanks and appreciation.

I have a student that attends Lee's Summit North High School and a student that attends BCMS. If you have a problem that needs to be addressed the highschool is more than willing to work with you to solve that problem. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of BCMS. If you have a problem the staff cannot help you because everything has to be cleared with the principal. The principal does not want to hear complaints parents might have. The former principal at BCMS was very good at listening to parents and addressing their concerns but the current principal is not. I cannot wait until I do not have to deal with this school.

I agree with the other student that had posted a comment on here. I, too, am a student of this school and I have noticed these things as well. I think that all the parents that are commenting on this being a great school, don't know the full story. They haven't walked the halls, been in our shoes. It is a good school though, it just isn't the best if you want to base all of this on how good our teachers, principals, discipline, parent involvement, etc. This school is not disciplined in the least and as for the teachers, they let you get away with a lot and weren't as supportive as they were made out to be.

Excellent is the right word! My daughter started this year at BCMS and I have to say that so far this has been the best expereince of her life! Organization, extra curricular activities, parent/teacher interaction, communication, and high expectations are some of the outstanding qualities this school has to offer!

Campbell is a Great School! With an enrollment of almost 1000 'tweens', it is amazing to go there and see how well behaved, quite, respectful and vivacious the student body is. The teachers and staff could not be more helpful and courteous. I have worked with several personally through volunteering and regarding issues specific to my child. Every encounter I have had with every person at that school has been positive and productive. My daughter works hard for her grades and is challenged by her teachers. There is a large variety of coursework, athletics and fine arts offered in addition to the core courses. The teachers have done a very good job preparing the kids for high school demands, both personal and academic. I recommend this school to everyone. If you don't live in Lee's Summit, move there so your child can go to Campbell. It is that good.
