The Principal is committed to bullying students she feels; have no support at home. Special need parents beware!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted September 16, 2009

They go out of their way to help special needs children of all kinds feel reassured about their equality to their peers. For a very small town, they try very hard to be modern and progressive.

I enjoy going to this school. The teachers are excellent. Their teaching methods really get our attention.
—Submitted by a student


Posted January 19, 2008

I have a child in the 7th grade and this is a very difficult age. But I also think we the school has a very good principal, vice principal and teachers. To me this would be the hardest age group to deal with and I am very proud of how things are handled, by the principal, Ms. Leonard.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted October 5, 2007

I am very happy with the school I think they are trying real hard to keep our kids safe and to learn I would not want to be in Ms Leonard shoes dealing with all the teenagers

Camden Junior High School is one of the best schools I've ever been to. The principal's leadership kept everything and eveybody in place. I wish to give my congratulations to Mrs. Michelle Leonard and Mr. Randy Shanon for their hard work in keeping the school in order.
