El Camino Real Charter High School Reviews
There are some high motivated students as indicated by national academic decathlon wins, but that is a small minority. Average test scores are below Granada and Taft. The chemistry lab doesn't even have functional Bunsen burners, but the schools is happy to waste hundreds of thousands of dollars painting murals.
If you have the means, live elsewhere and attend either of the above schools.
