Camas high school is the best school I've ever gone to! The teachers, and staff are very kind, and encouraging. There are so many options, and selections at camas high school. Everyone is just fantastic! There are also great programs at camas high school. There are so many different opportunities too.

We're just finishing the year as a the parents for an exchange student. When I asked her on the way to her 'back to school night' who her favorite teacher was her answer was that she did not have one. I told her she must. She said I would see but that in her opinion they're all great and as a result she was unable to select one. I was shocked, but she was absolutely right, they were in fact all amazing teachers. Extracirriculars and AP classes are equally strong. The team went to the state football championship led by a great feeder system, and I believe won state titles in sports like swimming. Moreover, while the school itself it large, I've never heard anyone complaining that they felt lost there. In fact, midway through the first grading period one of our student's teachers came to us and suggested a change of class (Alg. II to Alg. I), showing in my mind her teachers were not only aware but willing to make whatever adjustments might be needed to suit her situation. As an aside, the Prom King also had real depth. He's an Eagle Scout and magnet student, super nice, not the prototypical 6'4" QB or linebacker. All in all, Camas is an excellent school through and through.

Very happy with this school and the leadership. My child is highly challenged and gets the necessary help when he seeks it out. So glad we moved to Camas from the East Coast.

The teacher and coaches at this school have hugely swollen egos that prevent any actual teaching. There high test scores come from kids who are teaching themselves. If a kid needs any help they can forget it. Our child is a 4.0 student but has needed a bit of help here and there and has been told "hope you can figure it out". She did, from Kahn Academy and her older sibling. The coaches are horribly condescending and bad for any girl or boys self esteem. The bullies you have to worry about here are the coaches!

This is an excellent school! We have three three children who graduated from Camas High School. Now all three of them have Bachelors degrees and so far two of them also have Master's degrees. Thank you CHS!

Really not as great as everyone works it out to be. While the teachers are wonderful, most of my peers are just plain lacking in respect. Everything seems like pageantry, a race, and as a more introverted and teased person, I find this exceedingly unsettling. Most are rich and spoiled, I assume, they seem to expect everything to be handed straight to them. I just can't stand it sometimes, but its my only option if I want to move on in life. To parents who want to move to Camas solely due to education - don't. Especially not if your child is battling a bout of shyness.

Camas High School is known for their high standards academically and of their student code of conduct. It is a closed campus (there is not much that is close by to grab and get back in time), cell phones are not allowed, dress code is enforced and a fair but accountable attendance policy is in place. Athletically they are among the best in the 4A class in the state of Washington, more importantly, community support at events is high. So much fun to attend a Friday night football game at Doc Harris. Definitely the perks of a small town school with higher than average standards. I would highly encourage students to join a club or team and get involved in their school. Having a job is nice, but high school comes around once - enjoy it if you are able.

It's the same Camas, just without the soul. Whatever happened to the good-old Camas feel? We have upended our roots of tradition and shifted things from loving and supportive to dog-eat-dog. Per reflection of their "whatever makes us look good" mentality some of the current administrators look to use their current job as merely a stepping stone. CHS seems to be more interested in AP placements than any substantial student learning and the administrators consider any sport other than football to be worthless. Who really suffers from the egotistical leadership that are only out to serve themselves? The kids. We keep hiring the wrong people for our school...big suits, little character. I sure hope our old pal Mike Nerland can rediscover within himself that old Camas Papermaker pride so we can get things back on the right track.

With all of the micro-managing that comes from parents and the superintendent, it is amazing that we can get any teaching done at all. Education is more than a 'dog and pony show' but until he stops cowtowing to those with the biggest incomes and loudest voices, we will continue to go fo flash over substance.

I am greatful that my daughter has always been enthusiastic about attending Camas High School. As a 10th grader with many of the same friends and classmates since Kindergarten. She is happy this is her school and always sharing her school spirit with the younger school kids who are looking forward to having some of the same experiences as hers

Most of the teachers are helpful but they expect too much out of you. I think some of them forget that we have six other classes and don't have time to spend one hour on homework for each. At this age a majority of us have jobs and a social life. We don't want to be spending our whole day doing homework. I like the layout of the school but, the less responsible students need to keep it more clean than they are.

Its been one week since I started at Camas and I believe that out of all the schools I have been to this one is the best. Several activities keep us involved, and my teachers atleast are very encouraging and so far make it in my ability to succeed. Its easy to do my absolute best and acheive greatly. This school is great ! :]

Very nice, well rounded school. The small town and community really help, and the kids appear to form good relationships. The teachers are very good -- I would give them a B. Sports programs are really good, and the clubs are nice too. The school is brand new. Good parent involvement and notes home from teachers is pretty common.
