History of C.A.M.P.
The Cranford Achievement Middle School Program is an extension of the Cranford Alternative School. The school was designed to provide an alternative educational setting for classified middle school students who were experiencing difficulty adjusting to the traditional school environment. Students from Cranford, as well as students from other districts, who were referred by their Child Study Teams were considered for admittance.
The middle school program began in 1994. Based on the needs of middle school students who demonstrated behavior or emotional difficulties in their educational settings, the Cranford Achievement Middle School Program was developed as an early intervention program. As a result or this early intervention, many of the students are mainstreamed back into their respective school districts for the completion of their high school years.
