Cameron's Mission Statement
The mission of Cameron School, in partnership with parents and the community, is to provide all students access to a challenging curriculum rich in meaning and rigor that inspires students to become knowledgeable, lifelong learners. We are dedicated to promoting students who are: self-starters, responsible citizens, cooperative, and effective communicators. Together, in partnership, we accept the challenge of preparing our students to reach their greatest potential, committed to intellectual achievement, social emotional growth, and cultural diversity. Through this holistic approach to education, we aim to develop compassionate, responsible, and global citizens who strive to make a difference in creating a more peaceful world.
Cameron Elementary School is located in the heart of West Covina. Situated next to a community park, adjacent to West Covina High School, our school is in the hub of community activities. Opening its doors in 1952, Cameron was originally a K-8 campus. Over the next thirty-six years, Cameron went through many configurations, and in 1988, became a K-5 elementary school in the West Covina Unified School District.
During the 2016-2017 school year, we added Transitional Kindergarten to our campus. An exceptionally professional staff includes highly qualified teachers, paraprofessionals, support providers and a principal. Each staff member strives to continuously improve the quality of the educational experience for all Cameron learners.
At Cameron Elementary School, we believe in a balanced education for all students. Our district K-4 Reading Initiative supports our goal to have all students reading at or above grade level. In addition, we are dedicated to providing enriched learning opportunities. To facilitate this learning, all students in kindergarten through grade 5 are provided individual iPads for kindergarten and first grade students, and individual chromebooks for 2nd through 5th grade students as a tool for supporting inquiry and developing skills.
