District Profile

  • The Camp Hill School District is located in a borough in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, 2 miles (3.5 km) southwest of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.  Our borough is a unique, close-knit community, which contains both a school district and a municipality within the same boundaries.  We are a walking school district and do not provide transportation to and from school.  Students are encouraged to walk or bike to school.

    Our schools and students are often recognized for their outstanding academic achievements and athletic championships.  The District has held a long standing commitment to educational excellence, community strength and student success.  We have maintained this mission through our ongoing focus on all students and continuous improvement.  Camp Hill students excel academically, culturally, athletically and civically.

    Approximately 1340 students are enrolled in the district.  Kindergarten, first and second grade students attend Hoover Elementary School, and third through fifth grade students attend Eisenhower Elementary School.  Students in grades six through eight attend the Camp Hill Middle School, located in the same building as Camp Hill High School, which serves students in grades nine through twelve.

    The administrative staff consists of a superintendent, director of business administration, director of student services and four principals, one for each level.  The Superintendent and Principals are responsible for all matters of curriculum, instruction and staff development.  The Director of Business Administration is responsible for all business and finance functions.  The Director of Student Services is responsible for all student support services.

    The District also employs an assistant principal for the middle school / high school, counselors, a psychologist, speech and language clinicians, special education teachers, special subject teachers and regular education teachers.

    Class sizes are small, promoting students' high levels of achievement.  Instruction occurs at students' developmental levels and opportunities for acceleration and enrichment are provided.  Our elementary schools are appreciated for the small nurturing environment provided to students as they develop a strong foundation for future learning.  Within the middle school, academics are also prioritized with a strong focus on the developmental needs of preadolescents.  Our high school students excel in academic and leadership skills.  Over 90% matriculate into higher education and most attend prestigious colleges.

    Most residents are college-educated. Parents are very interested in the schools, and many are involved as volunteers.  The community is very supportive of the students and schools.

    Our public school district is often compared to a small private school.  Within our academic and nurturing environment rigorous programs prevail, and the achievement of all students is prioritized.
