I'm an alumni of this school, and overall, it's a good school... Where it was lacking, was in challenging gifted students! See, when I was a student, I was so bored with school, and found no challenge in any of my classes, so I neglected to do my school work out of sheer boredom. It's not that I didn't understand the work; I did... It's that the teachers at the time, did little to boost my interest in the subject matter. Heavy workload doesn't make for good students, especially if they're gifted, and bored! They need an expanded GATE program; one that ensures that the gifted kids are encouraged to excel, rather than to languish in mediocrity with the average kids... And, they need to identify the gifted kids immediately, before they slip through the cracks, and become disillusioned with school. Gifted kids are often neglected by schools simply because the administration just doesn't understand what it takes to nurture the gifted kid's interest. There's my two cents worth. Again, great school, just needs an expanded GATE program. IB and EPI aren't enough...

Look at the school's test scores. My son was a junior this year and they put him in chemistry AGAIN after he earned a B in it last year. The counselor said it could take a month to get him out of this class and others he did not sign up for - but not to hold his breath! So why was he in class if he was not going to earn any credits - just to give a teacher a job? After two years of bad teachers (not all of them) games, and wasting his time I pulled him out. So much more wrong but not enough to put it all down. This is NOT a fundamental school as its scores are embarrassing.

Excellent school. Something for everyone. My freshman has had a great experience in honors classes, sports, and band. I highly recommend it to families who care about a place where their kids can be well-rounded and cared about.

The EPI program is the best program offered at thi school under the category of preparing you for your future!

I really like this school! Honestly, I was really surprised how good El Camino is. I originally was in Churchill Middle School's IB program. I was fed up with all the busy work and fierce competition, and I decided not to go to Mira Loma. It's true that about half the students have mediocre grades, but there are a lot of students who do care and work hard for what they have. There are also many opportunities, including the Eagle Polytechnic Institute, which is excellent for engineers-to-be, plenty of sports & clubs, and AP/honors classes. The math and history departments are excellent while the science and English department could use a lot of improvement. The electives teachers are also very good, like the band teacher and drama teacher. Of course, like at any school, there will be brilliant teachers and the lazy ones who don't teach anything. Overall, this is a good school that hasn't released its full potential yet mostly because of the students themselves.

I'm a teacher/Alumni of this school. ECHS is Consistently one of the best schools in San Juan. It boasts a rich culture that encourages students to participate in Sports, Performing Arts, and various other extra curriculars. Only draw back that I see is that the school is the second largest, one of the oldest, and probably most out of date (in technology) in San Juan. The staff work hard to maintain a helpful, equitable, and SAFE school.

On the contrary the school officials are wonderful, the school consistantly ranks in the highest area of test scores in the state. Great school!

My son is new to El Camino and I have found school officials to be somewhat rude and unhelpful. On the four different occasions I've interacted with EC administration I found them to extremely disinterested in helping. On a brighter note, my son does seem to like his teachers.

this school is great. despite some rumors that may go around, quite a few of the students here are very friendly. i am a freshman this year and i came in only knowin 2-3 people. after only a week, i had met so many new friends. most of the teachers are great. this school uses an online grade site so students and their paretns ca check their grades anytime. though, sometimes teachers make mistakes. i came to el camino from a private K-8 school and i like it here so much better. El camino definitely gives the students the freedom to express yourself. i definitely recommend this school to anyone who wants a good education and a great, fun high school experience. =]

I see a big change with the lack of Leadership after Mr. Boone left. Students don't even know who the new principle is. Dress codes are not enforced like they used to be & if you aren't in Basketball or Football, then your sport does not matter. Academics & teachers are strong the last 2 years - which is too late to help students get ready for college. Why? I just don't know. Parent of 2 ECHS students

I think El Camino is a great school. The teachers all care about the students, and the students want to be there. Because of strict policies, there is little bullying and violence. The students also all want to be there and most take school seriously. The Avid program is also excellent. people complain because you must have decent grades to do extracurricular activities, but it's not that hard to get decent grades. You just have to pay attention and do your work and try hard. It''s not like you have to have perfect grades. The requirement to stay in sports is a little above a 2.0 which is pretty easy to get. the students are also pretty friendly the not school isn't really made up of cliques. Overall it's a great school.

If your child is serious about college prep, El Camino looks good on paper but it falls short. Lots of AP and Honors classes, some of those teachers are very good but... there's just something in the air here that breeds a certain mediocrity. Can't really blame the school for that, it's a culture thing. If your kid seems destined for Harvard or Stanford, then El Camino is not the place to be; if your kid is more in line with Chico State or UC Santa Cruz, then El Camino is a good match. First two years notorious for being unchallenging to academically oriented kids.

Success depends upon the student, parent and faculty. The faculty at El Camino High is ready to address the serious student's needs, as well as the serious parent's help. The faculty can be reminded to keep standards/expectations high. This means: They can expect students to do more work with higher standards- and in exchange- they provide dynamic professional attention and guidance. Administration can be expected to keep difficult discipline problems out of the classroom. El Camino can expect parents to provide more ideas & help. And- most importantly- El Camino students can be expected to keep themselves productive, socially involved, respectful. Keep up the excellent work everyone! There is no limit to our accomplishments if we parents, faculty, and students take responsibilty for our own work load. Do your job, and do it well- so you can be proud of your efforts at the end of the day Oh, and yes EPI rocks!

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.
