I have attended many schools during my childhood and have only found that one truly met my educational needs. When I started attending Camden they took extra time to determine my learning disabilities and then made sure that I was in the classes that would provide me with the best education. Out of all the schools I felt that Camden s teachers were the only ones who truly cared, they went that extra mile to make learning fun and they made sure you felt comfortable with what you were learning. They want you to do your best and achieve your true potential. Camden gives all students an equal try to get into any extra curricular activities. If I had to choose which school district I would like my kids to attend I have to admit that Camden will always be my first choice.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Regents Examinations to test high school students in English, math, global history and geography, US history and government, living environment, chemistry, Earth science and physics. Students must take at least five Regents Exams in order to graduate. Scores of 65 and above are passing; scores of 55 and above earn credit toward a local diploma (with the approval of the local board of education). The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
