El Molino High School Reviews

When I was going to school at El Molino it was extremely underfunded because of some teacher issues that occurred before I was a freshman. Since then the school has begun to get back on its feet and more programs and classes are being offered. The teachers were very caring and really tried to give their students the best education they could under the circumstances and even though we were using textbooks from the early 1990's and reading novels our parents names were in they really engaged us in the classroom. I participated in the art, music, theater, and golf programs at El Molino, which I can honestly say were the most affected by the budget cuts the school had to take. In art, the instructor paid for most of our supplies out of her own pocket to ensure that we had the materials we needed in order to succeed. In music, we brought back the machine band which had disbanded in the early 2000's and we won every parade we entered with only about twenty five students.

I loved the teachers and the programs offered. I had two different teachers three years in a row and I enjoyed every year I spent in their classes. I felt challenged academically, all the while feeling supported by my teachers. The small size means that all your teachers come to know you and your learning style really well. I also found that teachers were willing to help me with my social issues because they knew me so well in the classroom.
ElMo is a small school, but don't let that scare you off. It offers opportunities I would never have dreamed of, and every teacher cares deeply about the students. This school and the people in it are always encouraging you to try something new, and if you're willing to put in the effort you'll get a fantastic education.
