Campbell Middle School is a hidden gem. As one of the only international baccalaureate (IB) middle schools in Cobb County its curriculum is impressive. The principal and our entire staff are dedicated to creating a love for learning and a thirst for knowledge that goes beyond the classroom. Complimenting our IB program, CMS offers various trips to other countries such as our Spring Break France and Spain trip or our Colombia South America Service Trip during the Summer break. CMS is forming wonderful global citizens.- that are truly prepared for the world. If one is concerned about the size of CMS, over 1500 students, I agree- it is large and I was worried that our child might feel overwhelmed by it or lost in the numbers of the school- but through the offering of various clubs and the design of the school being segmented by grade: 6th grade hall, 7th grade hall, 8th grade hall- that 1500 number becomes easy to navigate and the school through time begins to feel like a big family. The specific academy choices such as Band, Orchestra, Spanish, French, Art, Engineering, Drama, Chorus, PE also help to make the school seem smaller. Students who choose orchestra stay in orchestra for the entire 3 years, thus getting very close. The same goes for our language classes or Art. We cannot say enough good stuff about CMS. It truly is a hidden gem, and each year it gets brighter and brighter. Next year our 2nd child will be attending CMS.
