Mission Statement

"Campbell High School's mission is to join together with parents, students, staff and community to become a collaboration of learners born of character, courage, respect and responsibility."

Final Exams

When Campbell High School first opened, there were no finals. When students learned that local high school Alvirne High gets a half day for finals, the students brought up the idea to the teachers, and later the school board. Students now have finals on the last four days of a semester. The first day is A and B, the second C and D, the third E and F, while the last day is G and H. If a student has a study, they do not have to show up for the block on that day of a final.

Grading with Core Competencies

Courses at CHS have between two and five competencies per semester. Core competencies for multiple section classes are the same, even when there are different teachers. Students have multiple opportunities for assessment of core competencies. They may include tests, quizzes, research papers, oral presentations, essays, and labs.A student must earn a grade of at least 65% in each competency in order to pass the course. If a student fails one or more of the core competencies in a course, he or she fails the course. Some courses are offered in summer school. In order to be eligible for summer school, a student must pass at least half the core competencies. Eligible students attending summer school are only required to master the core competencies they failed.

Campbell Advisory Program

All students at Campbell High School participate in the Campbell Advisory Program. Students meet with their staff advisors for ten minutes or longer in groups of approximately twelve. The CAP advisor is a spokesperson and an avocate for the best interests of each advisee. Each advocate is a contact person and a resource for his or her advisees. It is hoped that a lasting relationship can be developed in this context so each student feels he or she has a spokesperson who is approachable and works on his or her behalf. CAP also encourages trust, responsibility and mutual respect among a diverse group of students.

Sophomore Project

All students must successfully complete and present a project during their sophomore year in order to graduate from Campbell High School. The Sophomore Project reflects a minimum of thirty hours of community service chosen by the student and approved by the sophomore project clearinghouse.

Senior Project

The Senior Project is a requirement for graduation at Campbell High School for all seniors, as well as any students considering early graduation. The Senior Project is designed by each student and approved by the senior project clearinghouse, and must reflect at least forty hours of work. These projects develop individual skills and knowledge in an area that the student chooses. Opportunities to gain credit for the project will be based on documented hours: 67.5 plus hours can earn one-half credit and 135 plus hours can earn one credit.
