The truth. There is unfair treatment towards those in ASB no doubt about it. Not saying all the asb is to blame but throught going to school in the district there was always complaints about how they are given leeway for certain things. Which is unfair to other students who do try and do their best but being in a set community is not their thing. You do not have to be in asb to be treated fairly. everyone should be treated fairly. Another thing that is a current issue was a certain high school left out the entire special education classes. No page, no name, nothing for them as of last years year book. Which upset many students who were attending and who have graduated as well. What is the point of schools trying to sell the 'everyone is going to succeed', but completely mistreat so many people. How does that make a student feel? Their parents? and let alone the staff knowing that they could have avoided all the issues by simply making sure every singe one is included.

Although it is not the best school in terms of funding or performance, this school hosts some really great teachers that actually want to help students who are disadvantaged and do not have the stepping blocks that many others have. These teachers, many of them who could teach at much higher esteemed schools, want to help, genuinely help, and that is everything.
Elmonte Union High School District isn't the best district, but it isn't the worst. They have many resources such as a large library filled with many books. They also have access to computers, either Chromebooks or desktops. They are also very eco friendly as they recently installed solar panels for each high school. They are also electric car charging stations in the parking lot. Though teachers vary, the quality of teachers in general are average. The facilities are mediocre and can be definitely updated and cleaned. The food is alright though I feel as if there is a problem with plastic waste especially with the extra plastic coming from disposable forks and spoons. The faculty is nice and helpful and the schools are pretty safe with campus security guards going around the school as well as having a campus officer.
