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.
I enjoyed many of my classes at EMHS, and the teachers are very supportive of my endeavors. From my experience, they are willing to take time out of their day to help you grow as a student and properly understand the curriculum. The AP and honors courses were stimulating and challenged me in a plethora of ways. I also learned how to be a proper leader and work efficiently with my fellow classmates, which will definitely benefit me in college! My only complaint is that the school is short on textbooks, so studying in the library can be a challenge.
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.
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.
The teachers care for the students. The food is constantly improving. The staff is helpful. The technology is often used and extremely helpful.
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.
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.
Most of the teachers at this school are very passionate about their jobs but even those who are and those who aren't don't provide much education for the class which leads kids to not do as well as they should during AP classes and essentially wasting a year's worth of education.
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.
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.
one of the best schools in the district. Everything about it you'll like. Amazing staff and you'll meet good people there. Good at sport as well at the high school that I went to.
My experience at El Monte High School was the best I had good teachers who understood that some students have different ways of processing learning materials and did not rush any of the other students to have the same process as any other class.
The History, English and Foreign language departments have by far the best teachers who actually care for their students, however, I just wish students would take their class serious.
