Escondido Charter High School Reviews

I love the small class size, student-teacher interaction, and emphasis on college readiness. The school focuses heavily on maintaining its "unique culture" which can be beneficial but also very frustrating at time (it leads to close-mindedness, old-fashioned and sexist dress code, etc.) It is very traditional and conservative, which was difficult for me seeing as a lot of the students are judgmental. However, the classes and teachers are the best I have ever experienced and I have loved my academic journey overall. The best classes are definitely the English and math classes. Very small, which some may enjoy, but for me it was too small. However, it did allow students to build close relationships with fellow students and teachers.

I was in the Independent-Learning Program, so I can't say much about the school, but many of the teachers were amazing. I was good friends, not only with my teachers, but other teachers as well! Practically the entire faculty knew who I was and regularly greeted and asked how I was doing. I drop by every once in a while to say hello. By the way, the teachers in ILP are open to buying you lunch or coffee on your birthday and when the staff receives boxes of baked goods, you're usually allowed to have some too. The school is like an extended family to me.
Escondido Charter High School is an excellent high-school. It's college focused. The classes are small, which allows for more one-on-one interaction between teacher and student. The teachers are demanding in their expectations and push the students farther than I've ever been pushed in college, and yet, they push them to the point of success. You will learn in greater depth about subjects of science and math than you will learn in your college introductory courses. It's fairly diverse, especially for Escondido, which is predominantly white and latino. There is a special culture to Charter that fosters individual identity. I didn't see any degree of bullying or lawlessness amongst the students. GO WHITE TIGERS
