Cameron School began as a wooden structure in 1907. In 1927, a three-story brick structure replaced the 1907 building and held grades 1-12. In 1964, when Union Pines High School was built, Cameron Elementary became a K-8 school. This building remained until 1982, when the present structure was added. Cameron Elementary became a K-5 campus in 1997 when New Century Middle School was built.
Today, Cameron Elementary School contains kindergarten through fifth grade. In our K-2 classes, students are self-contained and taught all subjects by one teacher. In grades 3-5, a modified block schedule is implemented. Instruction is provided by one teacher for language arts, then the students change classes and are taught math, social studies, and science by a different teacher. All students attend art, music, physical education, media, and guidance classes weekly. We also have reading intervention, AIG, and an Exceptional Children's program.
Cameron Elementary is a small, family-style school. We have approximately 250 students, with 2 classes per grade level. We have a community and PTA that is actively involved in our school. Our volunteers help promote the love of learning and work with our students to develop life-long learners. We provide an after-school care program for our students which runs until 6:00 p.m.
