Parent involvement is maximum. There are more than enough volunteers for anything the teachers need. $1,000,000 is given each year to this school from the community for music, art and other programs and it is a very small town (less than 20,000 population). 99.9% graduate and go to college of their choice. Parents are well- educated professionals. The majority are two-parent households, where one parent is home when school is out. This prevents truancy, gang activity and minimizes distractions from academics. Very supportive of all sports and fund-raisers. Bond measures pass due to school ranking (latest ranking was 2nd in the State of California!). Community is quiet and safe - too boring for the kids but wonderful place to raise them. Many extra-curricular activities and electives are available - 7 class load available and a ton of AP classes so students can have 30+ college units when they graduate.
Our daughter transfered to Campolindo from Acalanes her junior year. What a breath of fresh air!! Students were so much more respectful toward one another and held accountable for their actions. Acalanes was not a good fit because of these issues. After graduation from college, it was a great realization how well she was prepared. The art and athletic departments were the two extracurricular areas she enjoyed the most...both way above par.Fabulous parent participation...particularly grad night work, senior year. We'd do it all over again in a heartbeat.
Campolindo was a great school for all four of my children. All have or are attending UC campuses, one is in medical school, one in law school. All were well prepared for the advanced learning that college demands - Campolindo's strong emphasis on writing skills enabled them to excel in their post-high school endeavors.
Campolindo High School offers one of the top curriculums in the state. There is a wide variety of courses ranging from English to Architectural Design. There are also numerous AP courses including English, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, French, Spanish, Government, US History, European History, Music Theory, Art and more. Additionally, the teachers, while hard, are some of the most motivated that I have ever seen. They also have extensive training and skills to go along with that motivation. The school also sports a wide-variety of extracurriculars including successful sports teams (with several advancing to state playoffs), award winning bands, and state of the art facilities. In fact, a multi-million dollar performing arts center was just completed. Parents in the wealthy suburban community are highly motivated and demanding, resulting in high involvement in student programs and educational foundations. It is hard to find a better school than Campolindo High school.
