Camino Nuevo High is not your average school, albeit it shouldn’t be ignored. The faculty is serious in preparing its students to be ready for college, event to those whom are not the brightest. Each student has opportunities to succeed with individualized attention. With that being said, this is a small school, so everyone will see each other almost everyday day, which may be a considerable issue for introverts. Many students who graduated here went to prestigious universities such as Dartmouth and UC Berkeley.
In summary, this is a college prep school, but it is unable to provide any extracurricular activities away from the academic grinder.

Camino Nuevo is a very unique school. Most of the students who attend Camino Nuevo come from a central american background. The adminstration and teachers at Camino care about their students education. They also provide a lot of opportunities for students to be part of programs, tutoring, sat prep classes, and traveling to the east coast to see colleges. Camino isn't a traditional school were you get the high school experience. But if you want to succeed in life Camino Nuevo will prepare you for college and adulthood
CNHS is a good school being a charter. It definitely needs to provide more academic opportunities for their students (AP, Honors, etc). Also, they need more extracurricular activities for their students such as sports and clubs. Overall the atmosphere teachers provide for their students is amazing. It is not just a students and faculty relationship. Each staff member tries to have a relationship with the students creating a safe space for their students and ultimately a family.
