In 1979 Cameron County was a terrific school, now it is focused on what it has not what they teach or how they do it. Even now there are wonderful teachers but with retirement incentives and the administrations manipulations the good teachers are almost gone. Poor hiring policies and lack of teacher accountability has taken its toll. Most recently the administration announced the "answer" to poor standardized test scores is more homework. If the student doesn't leave the class understanding the lesson then homework will not help!! Current district policy is 10 minutes of homework per night starting in K and increasing by 10 minutes per night for each grade thereafter and some elementary grades assign detention for missing three or more assignments in a year. Now they want to increase homework instead of looking into why students aren't learning the material. If affordable internet was available where I live all of my children would be homeschooled

I am a 1979 graduate of CCHS. For those posting negative reviews - hey, look in the mirror and see the problem! My education was excellent and many of my class members have achieved admirable success. No one is going to hand you anything in this life.

I am a graduate of CCHS making excellent grades. Being in a small town, it is difficult for the school to provide a good education for those going on to college. If I hadn't chosen to go to a small college where teachers cared very much about the students, I would definitely flunked out. This community is located in a very rural part of Pennsylvania, and parents must to much to supplement a student's education. The town is fairly safe, but I would recommend that people choose a different place to live if they want their children to get a good education.

Cameron County High School is a nice school to attend. The teachers care about their students, and want them to succeed. Cameron County is set in a small town, but being from a small town has its benefits. The small community has alot of spirit - you'll never see empty bleachers at the football field. There are decorated signs all over the town, and special parades to encourage the local sports teams to succeed. I also love the fact that children can walk to and home from school safely. And, you'd have to admit, there is something nice about being a part of a small class - individualized instruction, more materials available for students, and the personal relationships that teachers from with students, and students form with other students. As a teacher today, I wouldn't hesitate to send my own children to CCHS.

Cameron County High School is not even adequate, at best. I attended CCHS my entire high school career and was a top student. I was aware in high school that CCHS was not preparing me for college and thank goodness for my foresight! I am a hard worker and without my drive I would have tanked thanks to the poor education I received. I really pity the people who went to college believing that CCHS had properly prepared them and that they would be entering on the same level as their peers. It is not the teachers (for the most part), the administration is useless when it comes to making the needed revisions in the education process. Not to mention, the administration makes poor decisions all around. I would highly discourage anyone from moving into this school district.

Cameron County High School is a great school to attend. The school has great teachers that are willing to help a student learn the material needed to pass the class. I recommend Physics with Mr. Welch. He is a brillant guy and an amazing teacher.

Cameron County High School Sucks! I also went there and the teachers are horrible, except for a few, the people that are in charge and run the school dont care about the student's education, and nobody knows what they are doing. It's a mess. Don't even think about moving to Cameron County period. Well at least dont send your children to the school district in Cameron County. Cameron County is beat.

Having graduated CCHS several years ago, I've concluded that my education there was of the highest quality. While at CCHS, I made friends with many of my instructors. Though I may not have necessarily been the best student, I typically found that the teachers were more than willing to assist me in any way possible to succeed. During college, I found my Cameron County education to be a prosperous one. CCHS offers many benefits to students. The small population of Cameron County sets the scene for more personal instruction, easier transit options and a closer community. In conclusion, CCHS offers about the best education available.
