Campbell is a choice school within Arlington Public Schools. The state of Virginia determines what we teach through the Standards of Learning (SOLs.) Campbell varies in its approach. Our school uses project based learning to teach the curriculum. When Campbell was founded it was an early child center. Our approach has been influenced by early childhood practices, such a Morning Meeting, and a focus on developmental appropriateness. In 2007, Campbell became an Expeditionary learning school, which was a natural fit for our existing project based learning and thematic units. Expeditionary Learning focuses on student centered learning, authentic tasks, and student reflection. Our beautiful grounds, situated next to Long Branch Nature Center and Glencarlyn Park also contribute to our outdoor focus.
Our mission is to provide a respectful community where all children are celebrated and encouraged to achieve and grow.
At Campbell School, we challenge one another to think critically and take active roles in our mutual learning.We strive to make meaningful contributions to our diverse community based on our learning.Students demonstrate learning not only through assessments, but also through rich tasks, projects, field work, reflection and exhibition showcases.Trust, respect, responsibility and joy in learning are at the heart of our school culture.
