The school puts an extensive amount of money into their appearance to the outside world yet takes terrible care of their students. Most teachers do not know how to teach and guidance barely helps anyone. They do nothing about bullying or other issues yet expect students to feel comfortable. The food quality is just ok but overpriced. This school is not what it used to be, they portray a fake image and spend so much time trying to paint the picture of a perfect school instead of actually changing for the better.
This school really doesn't care about your kids unless they are an athlete. Things have gotten a lot worse here over the past few years (i have multiple children.) They teach your kids to be respectful yet the teachers can do whatever they want and say whatever they want. The school is ridiculously strict on things that aren't even important and they only care about your money. Only a few of the teachers my child currently has gives him extra help, besides that he's on his own. It is not a comfortable place to him yet the school puts up a fake face that it is a "second home" to its students.
The best thing you need to do for your child as well as for your finances, is to research these schools way before your child hits 8th grade. Get as much info as possible as well and visit there for not only a tour or shadow day, but try to attend other activities (sporting events,plays,mass,etc) to see how things are. Try to find out if the administration and teachers are motivated and qualified, if enrollment is rising or falling, financial stability of the school and info on their SAT scores/college acceptance rates. CCHS seems to have a solid reputation and appears to be a bargain compared to Bishop Eustace, Paul VI and Holy Cross. The extra busing they now provide in the Burlington Co. area finally gives those parents an added option now over HCHS. Good luck.
CCHS is just about the best high school around. Its diversity and always willing to go the extra mile teachers prepare the students for college.
Camden Catholic High School is a challenging school academically. Most people don't know that. The teachers encourage the students to succeed academically but also work to educate the whole person. I sent all three of my children to CCHS and all three have become caring, intelligent, adults who know how to give back to their community. What more can you ask for?
CCHS is the best school around! The reason why i sent my child here was, the diversity of the students!
CCHS has a very aggressive curriculum. My son, is now a Junior for the 2003-04 school year. Beginning as a Freshman, his grades were B+'s and A's, to Straight A's in Sophmore year. Our son has turned around his studies, takes ownership and is proud of his accomplishments. The love and support of these teachers are wonderful. If he needed help, he went in earlier or stayed later. The teachers were there for him and at this school, unlike other schools, it is 'cool' to be smart! We are proud of his accomplishments and very pleased to be apart of the CCHS family. We would not have it any other way. The clubs, the sports all part of his life fit in to make him a strong, well rounded and smart individual.
Camden Catholic is still the superior high school that it was 45 years ago, when both my husband & I were freshman there. We were in the last graduating class of 62, from the Camden City location.Both of our children attended & graduated from CCHS. We we never disappointed that we sent them there. Neither were they disappointed. We found our childrens education to be of the highest quality..well worth the many sacrifices we had to make to pay the tuition. We have never been blessed with a nice income..so it was a struggle..Blessed by God. Keep up the good work CCHS.
