Like any school, there are negatives. But I believe that at Campbell, the positives strongly outweigh the negatives. While it is true that throughout my 4 years at Campbell I have witnessed fights and unruly behavior, I have also learned valuable lessons in terms of a look at what the real world is like and diversity. In terms of diversity, I have to say that Campbell is one of the most diverse schools in the county as I have interacted with many students from various backgrounds whether it be ethnically or socioeconomically. Lastly, the teachers are amazing-especially in the IB program. They seem to love what they do and it shows in the classroom as they bring a certain energy that is irreplaceable. They truly want to see their students succeed! GO SPARTANS!

Great place for kids to learn and experience the real world of diversity. I have nothing but good things to say about the teachers and other kids I've met through the school.

My son has attended Campbell from the beginning, as an incoming Freshman. He has grown within the school, and I am so Thankful to the staff at CHS. Kids r going to be kids, but, CHS helps to guide and transform them into Young Adults, ready for the World. I Rate Campbell High School ~ A++++++!

I was skeptical about sending my daughter to this school at first from all the rumors about it being such a bad school. I have to say I am pretty impressed. The teachers all seem to truly care about the students success and getting them prepared for college. There really hasn't been anything bad happening maybe a fight every once in awhile but that is pretty normal in all high schools. CHS is not a bad school. Maybe some improvement in the athletic area though.

My son went for two weeks and I pulled him out. The school is pathetic and I call it a Jr. prison. I don't know too much of the students and the other parents--as far as their socioeconomic backgrounds--, but the staff treat the children with indifference and harshly. It is like they expect for the students to be criminals when they grow up. I had to homeschool my son while I worked from home until I was able to break my lease and move back to Marietta City Schools. I would love to live in Smyrna because it is closer to my office and nicer looking than Marietta. Anyways, parents beware of buying a home or renting in the jurisdiction if you have kids.

My daughter is a IB student. The ONLY reason why CHS is a good school so 'they say' is because of this Program. If CHS did not have the IB Program it will be a train wreck! The principal Dr. Magee is not involved with these kids at all. The kids are constantly fighting, having food fights and bullying other people kids. Not trying to scare anyone. But this school is a joke. IB is holding this school up. Take your kids else where. Trust me if you let your child go here you will regret. Better make sure they are in the IB Program.

I am a student at CHS and I've herd all the bad things said about this school, none of them are true. I've been going to CHS for 3 years now and the school is amazing. Of course being a high school there are a few fights and those students that want to act out, but that's normal. My favorite thing about the school is the staff. The teachers are very caring and hands on. They stay late or come early for anyone that needs it. The cafeteria workers are very polite and friendly. The custodians are always near by to help you with any mess with a smile in their face. I love this school, and you will too.

CHS has changed a lot since the earlier posts and praises I read here. Unfortunately NOT for the best. IB is of course top notch but everything else is run by out of control students that are able to hi jack the day knowing admin follow up won't be adequate and consequences will be OSS (read: sleep late, no school, excused absence). I feel bad for both the students and faculty who have to live with the nonsense day after day. Too bad the main concern the principal seems to have is to cultivate her image as she climbs the administrative food chain.

I have attended Campbell High School for one semester as a sophomore in the IB Program (which is EXCEPTIONAL). I came from a private school, which I had attended for 11 years. I could not ask for anything better than CHS. The principal isn't as bad as everybody makes her look. Dr. Magee truly does try to make the school as great as she can; students and parents complain because they don't like when bad kids are disciplined. At my old school, I was bullied because I didn't have the self esteem to speak up for myself. Here, it's too big for there to be bullies! It's not too big to make friends, though; the only attitude I've gotten from students I've encountered here is a bright, friendly, and inviting attitude, and the same goes for the teachers, who really aren't as bad as they're made out to be. The teachers care when the students care, and the problems start AT HOME with unmotivated students; the teachers are good and keep their classrooms under control when the STUDENTS cooperate, and then, it is an enormously positive learning environment. It's not sugar-coated; students are prepared for the real world. There are flaws, but no school is exempt from flaws. I love it!!

Campbell continues a downward spiral as those that care move their children to private schools or out of the district. I believe the core faculty try to do a good job but they are just worn down by the attitude and completely out of control student body. There are still some great teachers here who are doing their best. The administration and parents need to clean up this school and clean it up fast or the good teachers and students will continue to go elsewhere. I have had children attending Campbell for the last 6 years.

I am a CHS alumni of class of 2010 and all the talk about it being a horrible school is not true and I vehemently disagree with this statement. Just like any other school, it has its downfalls and problems,but if you are looking for a school to nurture your 14+ year old child like a baby then this is not for you. CHS is not a bad school and your kids choices are what gives them their consequences,deal with it. The Graphic arts program is very good and the teacher is exceedingly well if you are mature and self disciplined.She became my second mom and motivated me to keep moving forward and through my artwork I recieved numerous awards and was even contracted by the school to paint some murals. Sure the IB program is hard but it is worth it.Anything that is worth having always involves hardwork and dedication and commitment (like earning the title of US Marine). All in all, if you are looking for a school to spoon feed your teen student then look else where.Don't expect the teachers to do their job and yopur job as a parent awsell.GET INVOLVED!!The only problem I ever had with this school was the volatile mix of ignorant and unself diciplined students,but hey every school has that.
