I have gone to Campus for 1st through 5th grade and it was a wonderful experience! It has a higher academic standard than most, if not all. What really stuck out to me is how the teachers treated you and how one could create a good bond with them. The clubs, computer labs, and family gatherings are a great addition as well! Campus School is a school like no other and you will find no better school out there. I made some of my best friends there. I highly recommend Campus School to anyone! I even visit once in a while and still consider it my home. I absolutely love them and will never forget my experiences with them.
They are wonderful, they noticed that my youngest needs some extra assistance and they jumped to it. Made sure she had individual help, smaller groups as well as tutoring. They have noticed that she is behind the other students and are working with her to get her back to where she needs to be. Excellent teachers.
My youngest has a weekly folder she has something to do everyday. It has to be turned in by Friday. My oldest 3rd has projects, writing assignments, as well as reading and math and she does so well she comes in and gets it done. Don't want them to have to work at school and then come home and do a lot more work so I think its just enough to see what they have learned for that day.
Academically, this school is a superior elementary school; they pride themselves on high test scores. If that's what you care about in a school, this is the school for you. Moreover, the teachers are incredible, dedicated, and hard-working. There have been creative and effective teaching techniques used in the classroom.
However, this school is also very selective in treatment of families. If you are part of a divorced home, be prepared for discriminatory treatment. The director does not look kindly upon fathers and their household. If you, as the parent, try to voice any concerns, she will create special rules only for your family that impede and discourage the household's involvement. All families are not treated equally at this school. There will be efforts to infringe on parental rights in divorced cases. Very unprofessional.
My daughter has excelled in middle school because of the wonderful education she received at Campus School. Respectful, responsible, and ready is their motto and my daughter is living proof that Campus instills these life-skills to ensure a child's success. This is the best school in Memphis.
My daughter attended 1 - 5 grade here (finishing in 2013) and our son completed 2nd grade. We love this school. It is a very nurturing, family-friendly school with 100 percent parental involvement. The children are treated with respect and are among the most well behaved children anywhere. I like that the children eat their lunches in their classrooms - very civilized. Every Friday is family day and all parents, siblings, relatives, etc are invited to start the day out at Campus School while one of the classes performs skits and leads songs. Great school counselor was very supportive of my children. If you want your child in a nurturing environment, this is it.
Incredible place! Very community driven, parents have so many opportunities to be involved Very dedicated staff and teachers that have been there for years! No one wants to ever leave because it is so great! My son has flourished here and has some learning issues! They have rallied around him and supported us all the way. The counselor is sweet, great after school activities, small classes and lots of student pride! They instill character into everything they do! Wonderful place to learn!
