Camperdown High School has a long and honorable tradition as a source of education for tens of thousands of Jamaican children over its seventy-five years of existence.
The school started in February 1930 as a private preparatory school with six students, and gained grant-aided status in 1958 as a high school with 300 students.
It now has an annual enrollment of over 1,400 students. Now bursting at the seams, Camperdown continues to turn out young men and women of character, many of whom have excelled in academic and sporting fields.
A proposed new two-story, six classroom building will ease the strain, and more comfortably accommodate the students who attend Camperdown in two shifts each day.
The school which exists today has gone through many changes in its seventy-five year history.
