  • Thi is the second year for my triplets who are now in 6th grade. Their first year was al little scary for them and myself, but we got through it. I enrolled them in Camden Charter hoping for a better education along with striving at having a better attitude toward school and life in general. I have to admit the teachers are very strict, but I DO APPLAUD them for their time and efforts. The only negative thing that I am having is trying to get on to the website, promiseacademycharter.org to check out their grades and whatever else I can gather. Also the new uniforms/sweaters are expensive for me, but they do have used sweaters that are a little more in my price range. It has been approx. 1 month since school started, so hopefully I will be able to log unto the websites to access PowerSchool soon (maybe I'm just not doing it right). So far, overall I think that it is a pretty good school and I will be involved in their homework whenever I am not working (I work evening shift and they are usually tired and so am I when I get home from work).

  • i went to this school a few months ago. i hate it! they were very strict with the uniform policy so i would have detention all the time. the teachers over react to the smallest thing. it is a very safe school to go to since their are very few fights but 8/10 of the students that go their that i know all agree that they don't like it.
