Learn more about Campbell Elementary School.


Campbell Elementary School, designated as a National and New Jersey State School of Character, houses 700 students in grades one through four. A wide variety of programs and experiences are provided for our children in a warm, nurturing, and supportive environment. The goal of the Campbell School community is to meet the needs of every student using various strategies: differentiation of instruction, offering project-based problem-solution interdisciplinary instruction, and setting high standards for both the students and teachers. We are dedicated to the concept of inclusion and to the infusion of technology. The staff and parents of Campbell School have an unyielding commitment to learning.


All Campbell students receive instruction in art, general music, physical education, library/research skills, computers, and world language (Spanish) by highly qualified teachers. Third and fourth graders also engage in a hands-on, minds-on science class that enhances their learning in a laboratory environment. Students in grade 4 also have the opportunity to begin to learn an instrument within the instrumental music program when they select instruction in strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion. Additionally, the school offers supplemental instruction for students in need of assistance or acceleration in specific areas of the curriculum. Programs are available for children with an IEP (Individual Education Plan), ESLS (Eligible for Speech Language Services), ELL (English Language Learners), Resource Center Instruction, In-Class Resource, and In-Class Support.


Several after school or lunch time activities and clubs are offered which support the diverse experiences provided our students here at Campbell School. These include The Campbell Scoop (newspaper club), Chorus, Band, Orchestra, Physical Development Gym Club, Student Council, Chess Club, Kindness Club, the School Store, Drama Club, Art Club, Breaking the Chain Club, Computers Club, and the Lego Robotics Club.


Campbell School is fortunate to have a very active and supportive PTO. With their assistance, the students learn from and enjoy a variety of curriculum enriching/cultural arts assembly programs.


Campbell School believes that education should be provided in an environment where each child is afforded the chance to learn and grow to the best of his or her ability in a climate where caring and respect are shown by and for everyone. It is the goal of the school community to work together with shared expectations in an effort to create a safe, positive, nurturing, and cooperative learning environment dedicated to educating the whole child, thus making Campbell “A Great Place to Learn”.
