    "I graduated last year at CBHS as one of the top of my class. Personally, I don't know what people are really complaining about. Camelback undeniably has great teachers (though we all agree some need to learn how to). Camelback has this reputation of being a bad school, but the way I see it, many of the teachers at CBHS helped me prepare for the university I'm attending now. Then again, the lack of AP classes brings this school down a bit. (Class of '08)"

    "I am currently a student at camelback high school and in my opinion it is much better and a little cleaner than schools like North. Of course there is absolutely no way to avoid the gangs and all those stupid problems, but Camelback is alot cleaner and controled than all those other schools."

    "I am formerly a student of CBHS. Don't believe all the bad publicity about gangs and violence!!! This school rocks!! The environment is both student/parent friendly-encouraging parents to be proactive and encourages student growth upon graduation. Also, this school embraces cultural diversity....cudos to this school-I am glad I attended...it helped myself and many others to excel!"

    "Good news! Camelback received $1.5 million in scholarships last year (07-08). Not bad for a school that is supposed to be riddled with gangs and violence. By the way, anything you hear about CBHS being a gang riddled school or unsafe etc, trust me, they are lies. CBHS is the safest school in the District. With our new Dean, admin has become less tolerant of deviant behaviors whether it cell phone usage, dress code, fights etc. I've worked there for 10 years and I couldn't be happier. And I love my students - treat them with respect and they will yield great gains. While we do have a lot going against us, we also have a lot going for us. Go Spartans!"

    "My daughter graduated from CHS and did well, but if you're looking for scholarship assistance, they are of no help. She was in mostly honors classes - her honors biology class had only 3 students in it! I withdrew my son from CHS because of safety and academic issues - it is a very tough school with a large portion of the male students involved in gangs. Academically, if your student is not an honors student or an 'at risk' student, they will just coast thru or slip thru the cracks. Administration is far more interested in keeping attendance up and AIMS scores than on curriculum. My daughter received enormous pressure to keep retaking the AIMS even though she had already passed it - administration was trying to raise the score averages. Be very diligent and involved and talk to your student daily about their impression of the CHS environment."
