About Our School
Camden Street Elementary School is located in Newark’s Central Ward. Built in 1968, it houses approximately six hundred students ranging from three to thirteen years of age.
Camden’s special needs program houses approximately 280 students. These students live throughout the City of Newark, and are transported to Camden by bus. Opportunities for integrating classified students into a least restrictive environment are accomplished through inclusion and mainstreaming. Our goal is to meet the various needs of all. To accomplish this task, we provide students with whole group and individual learning experiences.
Academic success is the mission of Camden Street Elementary School’s staff. The strategy used to achieve this goal is through high expectations and realistic goals. High expectations are communicated to the students by the teachers letting them know specifically what they are expected to learn, and that they can learn.

Hello Camden Parents!
We are truly grateful to be able to serve you and your children and we would like to thank you for making Camden possible! We know it has been a very difficult year and similar to Thanksgiving we would like to make it a little brighter by bringing hope and good cheer.
We are excited to let you know that we have gift bags for you, one per family which will include at least 4 toys, clothes, books, and the coolest neon blue earbuds ever. But we are not done! No sir, we will have a raffle because someone very generous donated 2 new laptops to the Camden Street School. When you pick up your gift we will give you a raffle ticket. We will announce the two winners of the laptops on Tuesday December 22nd.
The winners will be able to pick up their prizes on December 23rd by 1pm. In order to be safe kindly adhere to wearing a mask when coming as well as the following pick up schedule starting Monday December 14th students whose last name begins with (A-C), Tu (students D-H), W (Students I-O), Th (Students P-S), and Friday (Students last names beginning with T-Z). Monday December 21st will be for emergency pickups only. The pick up time period is (9am to 2:30pm). Also, please note we are unable to match the sizes of clothes or gender due to the pandemic and time restraints. Our hope is that extended family or friends may be able to benefit from the kind gesture if you are unable to. As always, there is no Camden without you and your children so thank you.
