El Camino Real Charter High School Reviews
Review El Camino Real Charter High School
I absolutely love the school! I came from a small middle school/elementary school of 400 students (our middle school only amounting to around 70 kids) so I was very concerned about transitioning to a school of 4,000. I was worried about it being SO bug that I would feel alone especially since most students came from Hale their feeder school. But I quickly became involved on the school's Volleyball, Water Polo, and Swim Teams which made the school so much smaller instantly. I had found people with similar interests and created a smaller family within the greater el camino family. I also took all Honors and AP classes, so I quickly became friends with people who were as driven and goal orienteed as I was so I was surrounded by great influences. Club wise, there is a LONG list of around 200 clubs available! Clubs focus on a variety of activities from mountain biking, to UNICEF. The options are endless and there truly in something available for everyone, something that everyone can fit in to.
This school is very large and it is very easy to get lost physically and academically. Classes here are very diverse. If you want to succeed in this school you must take Honors or AE classes at the very least. If you are in a Regulars class it will not prepare you for college at all, as in you will probably fail or drop out of many classes because before you used to get A's on papers in regular classes that are really F's in college. In regular classes teachers will spoon feed the answers just to pass you. It is up to you to decide your classes and take control of your own education because administration offers little help. If your goal is to get into a good college I would recommend getting very familiar with the College Office, they are very helpful, but don't take the bootcamps they are useless.
El Camino is a good school, has a good sports program, and a semi-decent music/arts program(s). My issue with this school is how little the staff and teachers cooperate with students who are dealing with difficult times in their life, whether it's their mental health, or educational barriers. There is also often conflict between our school and the LAUSD district, due to our formal principal using the school's money for his own pleasures, including first class flights and expensive steak dinners.
