Encina Preparatory High School 5

Part 2: No one has to worry about being left out for ethnic-minority issues, because of the abundance of ethnic groups at the school. Not only will they feel comfortable with peers who understand them, but they will also receive help from those students who can relate to them, wether it's due to language issues, or learning issues. Both these issues take time to resolve, but they're not impossible. The consequence of this slow process, however, is the low test scores we produce. These scores, however, don't dictate the students intelligence or the teachers ability to teach.

this is the worst school ever. they do absolutely nothing for kids getting buliied. they act like they care when you go up there to talk to them. I have had so many confrontations with them due to them not doing anything about my son getting bullied. I wish my son didn't have to go to this HORRIBLE school. They don't do there jobs they just get paid to do nothing

This site must not be updated often, just like the school. It's 6th thru 12th grades. Outdated classroom equipment, lack of athletic facilities and what they do have is decrepid and condemned, no music classes, extracurricular activities are offered during lunch so kids have to chose one or the other. They don't even have every class 5 days a week, sometimes only 3 or 4 days per week!! Some teachers don't assign homework because they "just don't get it back".

I look forward to volunteering at Encina every year! I love their staff and have been pleased with their efforts and the growth they have and are striving for. I always can depend on calls for upcoming events and if their are any issues related to the school or my child.

Encina is a really good school and i feel that it's been streorytyped. The teachers really do care about there students and there's alot of one on one time due to the small class sizes. I transfered from El Camino my junior year and i feel that I'm finally getting the education i desreved.

I feel that Encina is an all right school. The teachers very much do care and try very hard to teach. One teacher especially Mrs. Begg, my Honors English teacher. We are now creating a campaign to make the school lunches better. If the school luches were better more students would be motivated.
