Since I have left El Camino, they have done wonderful things to improve their campus! They have added a gate around the entire school, which helps to improve security and reduce the number of students who are able to sneak off during classes. Secondly, they added recycling trashcans next to every garbage can, which is incredible for our environment. The sports teams have done wonderful both this year and in years prior; teachers are great at working with student athletes and making sure they stay caught up with their academics. A few individuals from El Camino's staff who stand out as wonderful and inspring individuals include but are not limited to Mr. Tom Voris, Mrs. Iris Villasenor, and Ms. Carrie Targetta. Once a wildcat, always a wildcat!

I think the clubs, sports, and extracurricular opportunities are good! The people are overall nice, of course with a few outliers. My only complaint would be a few teachers that don’t seem to want to work anymore and therefore damage the education of the students. This has scarcely happened though, for the majority the teachers are helpful and great.
I enjoy the welcoming environment in El Camino, especially the staff. Most staff here try their best to be one on one with each student to help them with any trouble and succeed. Even with such a large population in this school, our teachers try their best to get to know everyone. The diversity is something I enjoy. Diversity is something very important I consider in schools. One of the best things in our school is our AVID program. I have been in the AVID program all four of my years and I can confidently say it has really helped me getting prepared for college. Everything about the program is great, I would really recommend it. One thing I would change or add to the school are mental health workers in our school. Our school is very academic-oriented that sometimes it can be very worrisome to our mental health. Having a mental health worker here will really help a lot of students throughout the year. Overall, my high school experience is something I won’t forget here in El Camino.
