When I decided to move to the area, I asked my real estate agent at HALO Realty about the school. He said that he would highly recommend it as his children were students there. Great recommendation! It is everything that we wanted and more!

My son attended this school after relocating here from Houston Texas. He was satisfied with the school, nothing to brag about. However, if your child is coming from outside the State or even from another school and are interested in Basketball. The coaches are extremely closed minded to new comers. I cant say that they are raciest but I will say that they are extremely rude and show no openess to those persons who are new to the school if even they are qualified to be on the team.

A great school. Should receive better scores across the board. This school is under-rated I believe because, it is in essence, a new school and is attempting to establish an ingrained reputation. Take Hume-Fogg or Beech, or perhaps one of the local private schools able to establish a legacy through 'famous' graduates. This school has not had the 'time' to produce one. This is a very safe school and has great teachers. No school is perfect, not even a private school. We 'chose' to move to this area after visiting the school. Both my children will graduate from this large, new, nice and clean, very safe school with stellar programs. Sure the county needs to support the school better. Don't they all. Anyway this is as good as any of the two different $15000+ per student per year private school my children went to before we moved here.

I am a senior at SCHS... and when I read the reviews it makes me happy... but the ones where they post things about my school being bad because maybe their student did or does not enjoy SCHS.... well Im here to tell all parents that SCHS is the top school in sumner county for anything... Music, Sports, art.... I have been here for 7 semesters and every waking moment spent at the school has been a blessing... I will say our choral department led by Mr. Collins is one of the top in the state... we have been invited to New York to sing, to record on Tv shows, also have received recording time in studios by famous artist... we compete in competitions and attend workshops.... the music department is one of the least funded areas in our school but.. Teachers are the best part of the school..josh pulley

A great High school for acidemics and extracirricular activities. Wonderful staff led by Mr Crook Principle. Welcoming office staff. My son is a senior and sad to be leaving. My only complaint is more money should be allocated to the music depaartment. But that is up to the Sumner Co. School Board. I would like to also add this is a very safe school.

My son will be a senior at Station Camp this fall. Going to this high school is the best thing that has ever happened to him. Mr. Crook, the principal, is a wonderful man who makes himself readily available to parents and students. My son has had wonderful teachers in all subject areas and his ACT scores bear witness to that. The athletic teams are all doing well and the coaches are all such caring, decent professionals. Station Camp is filled with great families and well-behaved students. It is great to be a part of the Bison family and we will miss this school tremendously when he graduates in 2010.

I have two students at Station Camp, both are carrying straight A's. All of the teachers have been encouraging and strive to help the students excel. If a student doesn't succeed at Station Camp it is because of the leadership they have at home and not the leadership at the school. The ladies in the ladies in the office are always helpful and pleasant when I enter. We have been completely happy with the experience we have had at Station Camp. I would recommend it to anyone.

I love SCHS! It is the best school that I have gone to in my life. I came from an Antioch school and I am proud to be in a high school without gangs. I chose to join JROTC and the instructors are completely awesome! It has been a wonderful experience for me as a high school student.

i love this school! everyone is so friendly. there arnt a lot of stuck up people. the teeachers are great. i first started this school last year and since then my grades have been better than ever. there are always activities going on for everyone that make everyone feel apart off the school. the teachers are all about making the school safe but fun at the same time. students learn better when doing something fun rather than sitting in the same spot for an hour and a half listening to a teacher talk. no school is perfect and this one has its flaws..but i wouldnt want to be anywhere else.

The school has priorities that do not involve student achievement. They are more concerned with gaining recognition in sports and will compromise student learning and achievement for this. The students tend to wonder the halls and the young men are apparently allowed to wear their pants at the knee. Several other parents have told me that the people in the office are rude and treat you like you're bothering them when you come in .There is not a great deal of structure and they try to cover up unethical actions on their part.

I wouldn't want to go anywhere else! Station Camp is amazing! I love it! Most students don't like it because no matter how nice it is, it's still school. I hate school myself, but SCHS really makes it a lot easier. It's such a clean cut, well rounded school. I'm extremely proud to call myself a Bison!

The School is the best in every area. My Daughter was in band there and had every opportunity that any school could offer. She was also prepared very well for college. All of the teachers were helpful. Mr Waters does an outstanding job with the music students and really encourages the parents to be involved with the students. Station Camp offers a safe, and caring environment,with no gangs, It is a clean new school with all the opportunities students could ask for.

I am a student at Station Camp High and I love it there. I am a member of the Army JROTC at Statin Camp. It is run by two of the finest instructors I have ever seen and I am proud to where the Army uniform every week. Mr. Crook is the best principal I have ever had and I enjoy walking through the front door every morning.

Our son is a Junior this year and he loves SCHS. They have no trouble with 'gangs', and all the kids my husband and I have met from SCHS are friendly, kind...just the best. My only concern is that housing is booming, including new apartment complexes which will greatly increase the number of students.

The teachers at SCHS are very good.If your child is not doing well in a class it does not mean the teachers are bad. They truely care about their students and want to help. Mr. Hallman leaving was the best thing that ever happened to SCHS, because we got Mr. Crook. To say that he is just interested in being everyones' buddy is arrogant. He is a genuine person who cares for the well-being of every student. He wants what is best for everyone in our school. What you may see as him trying to be everyones friend, is really him trying to relate to us. You are all parents and know how hard it is for a teenager to trust an adult, but we can trust him as well as our teachers. Mr. Crook along with the faculty and staff of SCHS have made our high school the best

Station Camp offers a lot of classes but the teachers are not very good. The principal will not get back with parents if they have true concerns. He is more interested in being everyones buddy, teachers and kids alike. There is big financial questions and he will not answer them.

When a teacher shows their input with a child, this will encourage the student to do better. We have experienced this through Mrs. MInor. Great Teacher ! We thank you very much for your time, patience & encouragement!We appreciate you!

The school does not allow or encourage volunteers In order to volunteer, you have to join one of the sports booster organizations. The Sumner County Handbook isn't followed for rules such as dress code or discipline. The principal wants to be everyone's friend and not really take responsibility. The school isn't a safe school because of all the fighting and horseplaying that is allowed. I wish Mr. Hallman would return. He understood discipline and that the students actually thrive under a more structured environment.

Great school! Offers a great mix of classes for all levels of students. Dual enrollment courses, AP courses, honors, standard and resource. English department is especially strong. Offers opportunities in all of the arts and athletics (offers dance classes and even has ice hockey). Clubs and organizations have been enriching. The Foundation, a parent organization, focuses on improving the amount of technology available to teachers and students. Although it is still a relatively new school, it has a lot to offer.

Parental involvement does not seem to be encouraged. I have called numerous times about volunteering and have gotten no response. There's not even a PTA. The communication between parents and teachers is very poor- my calls have not been returned by teachers or even the guidance office. When I call the school office for information on school functions, they often cannot provide details. There are a lot of young teachers on staff who seem more interested in being liked by the students than in being authorities. My elementary school student has more homework than my high schooler. I don't believe they are adequately preparing the students for college- it seems almost weekly that there is some assembly or activity pulling students away from instructional time for playtime. My students' history teacher often shows 'R' rated movies in place of teaching- without parental consent. I'd choose private school if I could.

My son started at SCHS the year it opened it doors. He has grown into a remarkable young man because of the teachers and staff at Station Camp. Mr. Waters the band director has encouraged him to take leadership roles and because of the encouragement he had flourished. I was sad to see that Mr. Hallman was transferred to another school because he exihibited outstanding leadership and created an atmosphere of learning for the students. Mr. Hallman & Mr. Waters both encourage parent involvment. The teachers are the highest quality available in Sumner County and that makes SCHS the BEST High School In Sumner County!

We chose to send our children out of zone to Station Camp High School. I think it was the best decision we could have made. We live about 40 minutes from the school, but the drive is worth it. Both of my sons are flourishing. They had good grades before, but they have both improved. The atomosphere there is condusive to learning and they feel like they belong. They strive more for themselves than ever before.

Station Camp is the worst high school in the Sumner County area. They totally ignored me when I came there to pick up my children early. They put my children in the wrong classes and they have no idea what they are doing at that school. They are not even friendly and seem like they are always holding secrets at the school. I hate Station Camp High School.

Station Camp created the ideal atmosphere. The staff was one of the best I had ever seen. David Hallman ran a tight ship, and kept things orderly. The athletic director was fantastic. Coach Z made sure everyone had a fair chance to play. The students were well rounded, and diverse. April, Claire, and Kirsten loved SCHS and would tell anyone that it is the best high school in Sumner County.

I love this school. The band, colorguard, and chorus are excellent. I loved all of the students that went there because they opened their arms to any newcomers and anyone that needed any kind of help. I also love all of the teachers that I had there when I went there before I transfered to a new school this year. My favorite teachers there (Coach Holly Coach Shoe Coach Z Ms.Bean Mr.Bullen and Mr.Collins) need to stay there until it is time for them to retire because they are the best teachers ever. They are the ones that got me to love school again. So I want to thank you for my 2 years that I was there. They are the most memorable times of my like. Class of 2006 rocks.
