This site, like the one for documents, is meant to showcase the heritage of the campus school at Brockport. This school within a school ran for over 100 years, from 1867-1981. For those unfamiliar with the concept, it went as follows. The idea was to allow student teachers to learn by doing, and to have model schools where new educational techniques could be tried out. Students at Brockport Normal, or its successors, would do their student teaching in the campus school. The school was composed of students from the local area, and while it varied, it always covered at least grades 1-8. The students benefited from having two teachers or more; the full time "teacher critic" who taught them, and who also supervised the student teachers on their rotations through the class. In its later years the campus school became more of an experimental school, and was a pioneer in urban-suburban integration efforts.
