El Camino Real Charter High School Reviews

542 reviews
All Categories
This school was a home to my friends and I but it is overcrowded, difficult to get desired classes, and many of the academic counselors and teachers have little regard for the students. Additionally, the college counselors are pointless because they only begin to talk to you during junior/senior year, when there is no time left to do any additional things for your desired college (such as take specific courses, participate in certain activities, or have your GPA where it needs to be). This office could improve and should offer more services and opportunities for guidance.

Socially the school has many events and ways for students to get involved as well as many clubs and sports teams that people can join. Fortunately, there are also some great teachers that genuinely care for the students and their education. I had many good experiences in classes with great teachers and was able to meet interesting people in that collaborative environment, which I really enjoyed.

This school has really been heading down hill in the past years. The school spirit is garbage due to the lack of interest in any activities by majority of the school, the Student Council is rigged, the Peer College Councilor is also rigged, most of the sports teams are bad, the teacher's overall performance varies greatly, Most of the Admins are very rude towards students, there are ridiculous tardy sweeps, a lot of the textbooks are outdated, there are too many unnecessary credits required to graduate, the school only has (I think) two unlocked bathroom for the boys to use on the entire campus while the girls have multiple across campus, the bleachers on the football field are old and easily give guests using them splinters, and the lack of announcements for any event all contribute to the downfall of the school
From the way high school is portrayed in TV shows and movies, we often dread the thought of it. Going from a small charter middle school to a large school like El Camino, I was overwhelmed at first. However, within my first few months as a freshman I really realized that high school was not really something to dread. The teachers I had all throughout my 4 years there were always interested in furthering our knowledge and truly cared about us. I also found great activities to involve myself in, like being a Peer College Counselor and the Tennis Team. It was here that I found great faculty mentors that would keep me inspired all throughout high school. Although El Camino was a ginormous school, the administration and staff did its best to provide a comforting, tight-knit environment.
