Camey Elementary School 4

My kids have been going to Camey for many years. I was hoping that after the last principal was gone, the school would be better.. NOT . I believe it has gone down hill. The staff spend to much time trying to get kids excited about going to school ( pep rally every Wednesday) Which I believe time NOT spend teaching. Also the fact that they hold ( or try to hold ) Tutoring in the a.m. and p.m. but cancel all the time. and some kids can't even get in to learn more. You have to be a certain kind of kid I guess to have tutoring. PTA is also a waste. they same one thing and do another. Talking to the New Principal and Vice Principal is like taking to the wall. If I were smart I would be home schooling my kids. :( 2 more year and I am out.. Hope it gets better with the new Building coming up soon.

For grades 3-5 in the subjects oh English and Language Arts plus Math the overall grades have fallen from the previous year. The teachers may be nice but nice doesn't improve grades.

After reading reviews, I was hesitant to send my daughter to Camey. We have been very pleased with all of the teachers at Camey. Not only do the students get Art, Music and PE but they also have Drama which my daughter absolutely loves! All the teachers my daughter has had at Camey are wonderful. The vibe in the front office has gone from an unhappy one to a much more positive upbeat vibe. I'm excited for the changes coming to Camey Elementary.

Tonight attended the PTA/parent Appreciation dinner and the 3rd grade presentation at Camey Elementary. I am a member of the PTA and am often astounded by the dedication of the parents and the teachers. 18 area restaurants donated a variety of delicious food for the families to enjoy and to mingle. We all had a grand time and enjoyed catching up after the long summer. There is no school tomorrow and free tickets to the state fair were given to each student. Texas pride runs deep and is encouraged! The annual Turkey Trot is next week and all the kids from the school will participate and be given a shirt for being part of this fun and healthy lifestyle encouraging activity. The school is always involved in the community and values hard work, commitment and instills a desire to help others and your community. It is indeed a great school and we are blessed that our children are able to attend there!

This school can definitely be very challenging . Most of the teachers rule with an iron fist, the office staff is rude and disorganized, the principal and vice principal are very defensive. I'm disappointed that my kids have to attend this school!!

I am in COMPLETE agreement with the most recent commenters. This school is entirely too uptight and spends more time writing children up than educating. If a 2nd grader has 52 Written Referrals..... how much time is the teacher actually spending teaching?! It seems to me to that they need to be more concerned about working with the child and not relinquishing their authority to the principal (who I agree is NEVER there) and the vice principal. Once you lose your ability to correct and deal with a situation in class.... you are DOOMED for the remainder of the school year with the children.

I agree with the parent review dated 12/10/11. I too am not comfortable with this principal and other staff's reactions when confronted with concerns regarding my child. I feel the principal has control issues and if an idea is not hers, she shoots it down. Some of the suggestions/recommendations I have been given relating to issues with my child have been ridiculous! I am sure there are some parents that do not speak up for their kids as they don't get anywhere. I also feel that the teachers are too harsh on the kids during lunch time.

I have wonderful experience with Camey. Teachers are great. I was little concerned when my older son started Kindergarten but now he is a third grader and love school. He is always excited to go to school. Teachers are great, very loving and caring. Principal knows all kids by name. Kids just love her. My younger son started Kindergarten this year and he has learned so much and excited to go to school everyday as well... Love the school and teachers

Camey has the best students and teachers in the Lewisville ISD. The students work extremely hard daily, and many of them attend Saturday school to help do well on their grades and the TAKS test. The teachers and principal and assistant principal pull together for the betterment of the kids in any given situation. It is a Title I school, but received the highest rating on TAKS last year due to hard work and school spirit!! Go Cobras....
