I personally think there shouldn't be surveillance because it invades on the privacy

I think that kids should have there privacy in the class. I would consider surveillance on campus bout not inside the classroom.

There should be security cameras at schools because security cameras are necessary for the security of the campus.

Security cameras abide by the right to resist an "unreasonable search and seizure," which is in the Fourth Amendment. The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects personal privacy, and every citizen's right to be free from unreasonable government intrusion into their persons, homes, businesses, and property - whether through police stops of citizens on the street, arrests, or searches of homes and businesses. Notice that it does not protect from this in schools. When you and your parents sign the waivers and all of the other paperwork, you are basically signing over your rights to the school, and you are agreeing that the school district, the school, and the school's staff can conduct these searches.

Even though you do this, schools have the tendency to use them only when the circumstances require it, i.e. to review a fight in the hallway to find out who the instigator was, to investigate high-traffic drug trading areas, or to even find potential gang members.

As for your argument, there are no cameras in the classroom, just the hallways and the open spaces like the gym and the cafeteria, and also outside of the school along the perimeter.

wait do you just mean like regular cameras that are used by the school. Or cameras that are used by the government or managed by the NSA? Those 2 things make a big difference need some specification.
