We have had children at HPCS for the last eight years. The first seven were an overall positive experience however there is a definite change in the feel of the school. Without a doubt we can say that there has been a definite increase in the frustration level. This is the first year we have actually felt our child may be negatively impacted academically and emotionally. There are new hires that just don't get we have to battle daily to have open and honest discourse with our childs teacher. There are still excellent teachers in this school, we just feel our childs current teacher is not one of them.

Campus school is a great school, hands down. The teachers are very professional and the students are well-behaved. The principle is a go-getter who works very hard to give the best to the students. The students and teachers have demanding schedules, at times, but Dr. Bridgeman always rewards them, too, with all sorts of incentives. My kids and I love it. The parents are great, too. Can't say enough about the school. It is one of the best in Murfreesboro, if not, the best.

Campus School is a laboratory school for MIddle Tennesee State University. It only has 287 students and has a private school feel. All of the faculty and staff know my children by name. I love that they use the latest research strategies to teach my children. This is a very family oriented school....lots of parent involvement and no behavior problems...My children did not have to test to get in.. it is simply a waiting list. I put my children on the list when they were 4 years old and we got in when they were 6. They could not be happier!!!!! Every teacher must have a masters degree to teach here. I have been very impressed with the level of professionalism. The principal Dr. Bridgeman is amazing. She has alot of contact with the children and gives lots of hugs. My kids love her and all of the office staff.

I am new to Campus School this year and now know why parents put their children on the waiting list at age four in an attempt to get them into the school. It is incredible. The teachers and front office know each child by name and are friends with the parents. The new principal goes beyond expectations to work with parents and meet the needs of students. Even the custodians know the children. It is like a family at Campus School!

I have 4th and 2nd graders and this school is wonderful. Everyone knows your children, the hands on learning is incredible. Your children will have the most experienced teachers you can imagine. The parents are incredibly active. Leadership could be better, relationship with MTSU needs improving but overall I couldn't be more pleased.

I have had two children go all teh way through campus from K - 6. I mourn the loss when they have had to leave Campus to enter another school for 7th grade. This is the BEST elementary school in Rutherford County, possibly the entire state! You will not find a better team of EXPERIENCED teachers and administrators, INVOLVED parents, and MOTIVATED students. Our children have tremendous opportunites for field studies to gain hands-on learning, we are not limited to one or two a year. My recommendation ius to get your child on the waiting list as soon as h/she turns 4. The only thing I would change- if Campus School could have a Middle School and High School! :)

I love Campus School. It is very family oriented, very open to parental involvement, and its teachers are passionate and creative in their teaching. I especially like the belief that hands on learning is vital to any learning experience. Campus School participates, more than any other school, hands on activities and going on field studys.I wish there was a Campus Middle and High School.

Campus School is an incredible school. How many public schools do you know that have a waiting list? Dr. Baskin is a wonderful principle who not only interacts but is truly involved with his students success. The school is operated by Rutherford county but is owned by MTSU and serves as a teaching lab for this university. This is a great opportunity for both the children and the student teachers. The main teachers are highly competent and really care about the students. Campus may be old but this adds to it's appeal. The level of parent involvement is off the charts. Parents want to help because they know the staff is so involved. I couldn't have found a better school for my child.
