Starting high school at El Monte High School was a challenge and a fresh start for me. Being at El Monte taught be many factors of life. There will be times where l will be alone and learn to be okay with it because not everyone stays. During the four years of El Monte high school l was only able to be 2 years and a half on campus. I wish l would of been able to spend more time on campus and participate more.
This school deeply cares about its students and tries to stay in touch with alumni for whatever they need. El Monte High School is truly an amazing place to grow as a person and as a student. I am so blessed to be able to call myself an El Monte High School lion. Teachers and counselors only want to see your life be successful and they guide you in that direction. I love the food and eat pretty well here. The 3 choirs that we have here at El Monte High School are top-tier and perform all around Southern California and there is even a performance in Hawaii for the highest ranking choir.
Having a head start to classes during the summer is a great start for me and some people but when there are late starts they should let student go home again as in those who have school an hour earlier than others because there is still an hour till school starts again
I really like the environment and something that an change is the food that is given so it can be better
Very supportive staff and easy-going students. Just wish that the school would provide more opportunities in terms of internships, college-level classes, or simply field trips to discover new things.
At El Monte High School, I felt safe to be myself. The staff at the school were very caring towards all students and made me feel comfortable in the environment I was learning at.
El Monte High School is a school where all the teachers and administrators are willing to do good for their students. They give us the chance to prepare for college by giving us courses that are for college readiness. There are a variety of sports and clubs to participate in. Some sports are cross country, volleyball, football, soccer, basketball, baseball, and track and field. Some clubs are UNICEF, M.E.Ch.A, CSF, Link Crew, Leos, Laurels, and NHS where there occur a lot of student involvement, academics, and leadership. The teachers and administrations commit to a safe learning environment, at the school, and now virtually. Students can easily talk to most teachers and have a good student-teacher relationship since they are really friendly. Overall, El Monte High School is a great school because of the staff, teachers, administrators, and students.
I really liked the teachers there, and how excited they were to teach. Honestly it’s a great school. The only reason I don’t give it five stars is because of how boring the buildings look. It gives it a very sad look which might discourage some students. Overall, it’s a great school just needs some color change.
This school is a very well organized school with staff members who are always trying to help you. I like that it is always spotless and presentable for the students. The classmate is also very helpful to new coming students, treating them like their own family. I would definitely recommend going there because in that school everyone is accepted and they discriminate against no one.
Decent high school, teachers are good depending on the class difficulty. Most teachers are nice and caring. Sports are good with amazing coaches that really care for you.
The teachers I've had here are absolutely amazing & empathetic, but the counselors are sometimes pretty rude & lack basic empathy despite being a counselor. The campus is kept clean and the atmosphere is nice to be in. The school spirit is lacking in most areas and the default schedule (pre-COVID) wasn't necessarily ideal for students who took multiple rigorous courses. Overall, a nice school & nice experience.
The overall high school experience was satisfactory. The teachers do hold the best interest at hand when it comes to the student's education. However, the material being taught in classes wasn't relevant to college expectations.
I like that El Monte High School is a very welcoming place. The teachers and staff are very kind. However, one area in which I would like to see change is more funding in performing arts classes.
I enjoy how everyone minds their own business. You can be yourself at school. There's always going to be people that judge you, but seeing other students be themselves gives me the confidence to be myself. I'd like to see all clubs get recognition. The only clubs/sports that get recognition are football and cheer and leos and laurels who I personally feel like don't make a positive impact on the school. I think that each club should get their own page in the yearbook instead of just a little picture of the members of the clubs all the way at the back of the book. If sports get to have their own page, why can't clubs? Students enjoy sports and get to be themselves in sports, but who said that those in clubs didn't feel that way about their club?
The experiences I witnessed at El Monte High School in the past four years has left an impact on me as both a student and person. Being in a school with a diverse pool of students has left me to appreciate how different the world will be after high school. The interactions I've had with faculty and students will be forever cherished since I learned a great amount about life and whats yet to come. I learned to always be yourself whenever put into an environment that I am not comfortable in and to speak up about something that I know is not right. My experience at El Monte High School has taught me many lessons, however, the biggest one being to not hesitate when I should act on something I know will change my life for the better.
The staff at El Monte High School makes you feel welcome. They love and care for each and every student. Every staff member pushes the students to their full potential. They created an amazing school environment for student and parents.
I am currently a sophomore at El Monte high school and it is a good school overall. The education and what is taught is very good. There are many amazing teachers that truly do care about the students and would like them to have a future. The teachers are very encouraging and great. However, when it come to sports, some are cared about more than others. There is a lot less funding for some and they aren't really looked at when they are also great programs. I do like how there are many clubs and something for everyone.
