Grades: 6-8 | 32 students
Campus Middle School for Girls is the only single-gender middle school for girls in the Urbana-Champaign area, providing individual attention and strong, diverse course offerings to its students grades 6-8.
Campus Middle School was founded in 1993/94.
The school was started with nine girls, three professional teachers and many parent volunteers.
While it was not to be home schooling, the caring, small-group atmosphere was still an academic "home away from home," hence the original name, Home Hi.
The goal of Campus Middle School for Girls is to provide a safe challenging environment where all girls can develop their creative and intellectual powers, develop a love of learning and a passion for excellence.
