East Camden Middle - Mastery Charter School

Your Neighborhood School in East Camden

At Mastery East Camden Middle, we have a lot to be proud of! For starters, we’re in the top ten schools in Camden for both math and English Language Arts (ELA) proficiency (grades 3-8). Our students also exceed the national average in growth for both math and reading (MAP). For school year, 2022-23 McGraw will be grades K-4 and East Camden Middle will be grades 5-8.

We’re proud to be Mastery’s only standalone middle school and our small size – just under 200 students – allows students and staff to connect and bond like family.

Our classes are rigorous to ensure our students are fully prepared for high school. We also have tons of sports and extracurricular activities, giving students the opportunity to explore new interests and excel outside of the classroom.

At East Camden Middle, we believe all of our students have greatness within. With love and high expectations, we support them in finding their own paths to success.
