Escondido high school was pretty good, I attended there for four years and it wasn't too bad. Personally I was moderately involved in school activities and clubs all four years, had nerdy friends, and took lots of ap classes, and enjoyed my time here.

If you're a new student you should know that there are plenty of resources available if you look into it, so don't hesitate to go to the office or college and career center to look into what they offer. Personally all the educational programs are good, but be wary because there are teachers which can make the high school experience more painful than it should be.

If you're a high school senior don't rely on counselors to help you with every little thing when it comes to the college application process . A lot of the information you need you might have to find out for yourself aside from the basics. Although they are very involved in the college application process and have gotten better at motivating students to apply.

Some of the teachers are amazing. I will give EHS that. Shane Morey, Nicole Hoofard, Marc Reyburn, and Brittany Womack have been some of the most life-changing individuals I have met. Other teachers are beyond firable. When you fail 20 out of 26 students, something is wrong with how you teach.
The school is fairly open to socialization. Bullying is never a problem here, and clubs are great to be involved with.
The problems here are purely academic.
Sports are amazing. The school gives a genuinely good high school experience and fosters a very good sense of identity and community. I have no complaints, and it was a very good experience going here.
I thought my high school experience was average. There was enough good resources, facilities, staff and teachers that made it not only bearable but interesting. Some teachers were more inspiring and motivated than others. I just wish more students got involved in school clubs, organizations, sports, and extracurricular because then everyone's experience would have improved, been more fun, and brought more spirit to school events such as spirit days, rallies, football games, events by the arts, and our school newspaper and news video series.
