We have had a great experience at ECHS. Very happy there. Academics are strong, diverse student body, great new principal.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted January 30, 2014

The mission statement is as follows: "ECHS is a mutually supportive, academic community dedicated to helping students develop pride, perseverance, and purpose, in order to realize their potential." While this may be true for the majority of the student body, it is NOT true for students who have issues regarding motivation, resiliency, and anxiety. Students with ADHD, as well as other medical issues, including anxiety, suffer the most. Not only does the school REFUSE to support "teacher-student-match" when designing their schedule, but they will NOT allow a teacher change when the kids clearly cannot handle certain teaching styles. They will NOT consider anxiety level as a factor in preventing these students from learning, and hold fast to their "policy" of "no teacher changes." I feel so bad for these kids who have already given up in the 2nd week of the semester. They have NO motivation to persist in attending class or doing the work. Their anxiety level is HIGH. I cannot, in good conscience, speak well of this school. They are part of a problem and are not willing to become part of a solution. The lack of empathy on the part of the counselors and administrators is astounding.

El Cerrito is a good school. It has a diverse population of teachers and students. It has a history of alumni who help inspire a healthy shcool admiration for school spirit and academic education. It also has a community that supports all that the school reperesents. Kudos to El cerrito High School home of the Gauchos!

I went to many other shcools in the district. Hercules, DeAnza, and Richmond. I must say that this is the BEST school in the district thus far. For this poor district, El Cerrito has a lot to offer. It raises it's own money for clubs, and it uses the school funding wisely. For books and "the community project" which is basically a health care place and so much more. El Cerrito has open so many doors for me. I can actually see myself pursue my dreams now. I was a troubled kid, but El Cerrito representative offered me counseling, and I can't tell you how much that helped me. Not only my mood has changed, but also my mindset. I'm not saying this place is heaven on earth, nor saying it's the best school in the world. But to me, it's the best school I've went to so far in the district. Bottom line, education comes first here, teachers are dedicated, campus is safe. I love El Cerrito.

8/26/2010 - El Cerrito High School is one of the BEST school in the district. Their academic classes are very good. My daughter attend this school and she is on her Junior year. The school go by blocks schedule, which makes students focus more on each class. The dance production is amazing! The school is clean and very, I mean very tight security. Some cell phones do not work in certain areas inside the school premises.

I'm a recent graduate and now a student at UC Berkeley.The teachers here do care about you and want you to succeed.There are lots of help offered by the school for free.The arts program is run tremendously well.There are a wide variety of AP classes taught by the best teachers at the school.Since it is a diverse school, people who come out of this school are more open minded to the world, as I have seen.The school has a rigorous debate team, a great sports department, and a variety of student organizations on campus.There's also a great IT academy open to students to apply.The college and career service center helped me successfully apply to 17 top tier colleges: Harvard, Brown, etc, and helped me get into 12 of them.To succeed in this school, you just have to try. There is help everywhere you look

I must admit that I was a little worried by reputation that other schools in the district have. I spoke to some of my neighbors and found that El Cerrito has a very rich tradition. I talked it over with my son and he said that he wanted to go to EC. He is very happy with the school. The facility is beautiful. The teachers are very nice and seem to genuinely care about the students (which you don't always see). There a lot of great clubs and after school programs. The principal is extremely involved. He and some of the staff even ran a marathon as a fundraiser for the school. El Cerrito is a hidden gem.

i can't help but say the school is horrible. The security is too relaxed, the counselors messed up a majority of the student's schedules, and some teachers are not doing their jobs. Based on my personal experience the security is not doing their job, every single say i hear people swearing in the hallways even when security is there, and also when i was helping out worker a few days ago i see a group of students just waltz right out of the parking lot with so much ease. The counselors, although their new and all i can't help but say that they messed up my schedule so many times that i had to talk to them and even taking my issue to the principal. i had an experience with a teacher that literally forced me out of her class in the middle of the quarter. That is really horrible.

My son is in his freshman year at El Cerrito. He transferred from a private Middle school and he is really enjoying his first year of highschool. He really likes most of the teachers, he is being challeged in his classes and he enjoys the campus diversity. The staff is very dedicated to the kids.

The nicest thing about this school is how so many generations in the community support it. Alumni come back; and want to make a difference. Our principal is an alumni.

The school does well despite severe budget challenges. Very diverse, solid teachers, a friendly accessible place for students and teachers. The block scheduling is a bonus to teachers and students who both need and enjoy a longer class period to absorb the material.

My two chikdren transferred from private school this year. One is a freshman, the other a junior. I was pleasently surprised by the culture of the school and its course offerings. I have been told that there has been a lot of improvement within the past two years. Math and the newer English teachers are great. The art and yearbook teacher is also very good. Electives are strong Despite very serious budget cuts, the principal has managed to keep programs intact and school safety is great. One concern is that the district will be closing schools soon. I am not sure how that will affect El Cerrito.

I had two children attend ECHS Class of 2006 and 2008 and a third to start in the fall of 2009. I am hoping the Admin will improve the school. One of my children did not graduate because her Junior high counselor inrolled in AVID classes and the high school counselor didn't catch the error until I questioned them. Unfortunately it was too late. With my son he was suspended for going to the bathroom and not allowed to attend the junior ball. To my dismay I heard that they allowed students who were suspended for real issue attend. What made the matte worse is they would not refund my the cost of the ticket. What I do like is the block system where the student take 4 classes one semester and 3 the next. This allows the students time to focus on two core subjects at a time.

My older daughter graduated from ECHS last year and my younger one attends now. They have had many excellent, caring, inspiring teachers there, especially in History, English, and math.

The current principal is doing amazing things for this school. Although on the surface ec may seem like a typical 'urban' public high school, it has excellent teachers who truly care about making a difference. The discipline could be better, but only if you get put into regular (not honors/ap) classes. The extracurricular activities are wonderful, especially the music program. The one thing that makes it come together is diversity.

Both my children graduated in 2005 and 2002 and both are attending UCLA and UCSD. This is a great school, not to be undermined. Great for diversity, great teachers who care. Despite school district struggles, the staff has a great soul and great skills to boot. Very supportive parent/community too.

I am very pleased with ECHS because my daughter received a good high school education from it and she is going to a UC. Her school counselor and her college counselor gave her guidance and confidence that she needed to succeed. She was also in the school bands which are excellent music programs.

Though known as an urban school, I was educated here and went on to complete a graduate degree. I learned a lot about life here, in and out of the classroom. Give ECHS a try, it's a worthwhile life experience for any student.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
