This is our first year at Campus School. We transferred out child from a catholic school in the area and we could not be happier with the decision. The teachers here are fabulous! They genuinely care about each of the students and they provide a fun learning environment that the children thrive in, we used to fight with our child to go to school and since we have come to Campus school, she is always ready and happily goes to school. They care more about the students that how much money it brought in like the private schools. I cannot imagine having to leave Campus school at the end of 6th grade, maybe by then they will consider having a middle school added!? I would recommend Campus School to Everyone!

My child is in his third year at Campus. We left a well known private school to enroll and have been thrilled with our decision. The leadership and faculty are the best. Each child is treated as a unique individual. There is a 'whatever it takes' focus on academics. The music program is exemplary and there are many opportunities for artistic growth and expression. Extracurricular activities are available and varied. It would be wonderful for Campus to expand so our children could continue to benefit from the outstanding experience Campus School provides.

Campus School is an excellent school. The children work on the Loop teaching plan which allows them to have the same teacher for 2 years. The teachers are incredible and their hearts are in the program and the children. Parent participation is about 98%, which is a grat thing. It is a joy and a privialge for my child to be apart of the University of Memphis 'Campus School.' With full time PE,Music and Art programs we are truly blessed. We also offer Chinese and Spanish and will be adding on to that in the future. There is no better school than Campus School. See our website at www.campusschool.org. Where learning is fun!

This is an excellent school. Strong curriculum, knowledgeable teachers, involved principal. The building itself is open, bright and cheerful. The students seem happy and content and eager to learn. I have one child attending and one starting next year and have not felt an ounce of regret for having enrolled them.

I moved my child to this school this year and have not regretted it. I only wish it went beyond 6th grade. The school is about children [and] their parents. There is not a whole lot of bureacracy in getting things done. Field trips are frequent and add greatly to lessons taught in the classroom. There are no sports, which my son would love, but there is recess, physical education, Spanish and other classes that are essential to grooming a well-rounded child.
