A new icon: Camden High, rebuilt and reimagined, makes its debut
Camden community leaders, parents and students recently unveiled the $132 million, four-school, Camden High School campus which features advanced educational infrastructure and preserved elements of its historical predecessor known as the old “Castle on the Hill”. The new campus welcomed 900 students on its first day of classes, but will eventually support 2,000 students at Camden High School and the city’s three magnet schools: Creative Arts Academy, Big Picture Learning Academy, and Brimm Medical Arts.
“It’s so great for the kids,” said Superintendent Katrina McCombs, a Camden High alumna and former cheerleader. “This is really exciting, a chance for all of us to come together and breathe and say, ‘We did it.'”
