CAMPBELL ELEMENTARY - "Camp Campbell"
Campbell Elementary is a neighborhood school located within the City of Roosevelt Park. It has a strong tradition of parent and community involvement. Campbell has been able to maintain a stable enrollment through the Schools of Choice program, which benefits us with parent involvement and a desire for their children to receive the best education possible.
The Roosevelt Park Community and Campbell Elementary team up to benefit all the children of our community. We have many opportunities in and around the school, from baseball (Roosevelt Park Youth Athletics) to tennis and basketball courts, basketball and cheerleading clinics at Campbell (Norton Shores Parks & Recreation), to football (Mona Shores Youth Club), and soccer (Sailor Soccer & Norton Shores Parks & Recreation). All of these fun activities are offered in and around our clean, safe neighborhood.
