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.
Review El Camino Real Charter High School
Throughout my4 years experience, I met with many great teachers, students and faculty.They have Christian club,share their aith of Jesus Christ!They offer great events and opportunities for lower-class students to get free SAT tests, and job recruitment as well!their college counselors,Mrs. Yi & mrs. Shano is nice! many great AP classes.Also, they allow the students to leave early if you have more than enough credits so you can get started with your Pierce classes!They have clean hallways, the best neat bathrooms (they always paint over the writings done by students on the stalls)&the way they treat students!The Vice President (Mr. Hussey) is also very unforgettable!The morning announcements are great reason to wake up to as students are given a chance to speak their minds and...in overall, great graduation ceremony too!!Their campus is absolutely beautiful! lots of flowers!!The safety and protection you feel when in school because of security guards.
I believe that ELCO is a very good high school. But they don't do a very great job with preparing students for college, or at the very least convince them to care and visit the college office. Their faculty is fine, with some teachers being exceptional in their work and other teachers being poor quality. It is the school's job to help cultivate and grow a student to be the best they can be. If they had more teachers that are dedicated to their work and care about the students, with more programs to convince students to go out and volunteer or do work, the school can become a better learning environment.
I still believe ELCO to be an excellent school that overall cares about their students. They have programs and clubs to help students become better people and find harmony inside themselves. Allowing students to go to another student to talk their heart out if they need it. This school, for the most part, cares about their students.
