Google Dr. Barnitz to see the numerous awards she has received in recognition for her work to Turnaround El Camino! She is also responsible for El Camino receiving tens of thousands of dollars in grant money to advance STEAM education.

All teachers are highly qualified for their positions and work as teams to deliver quality education to all students, PreK through 6th.

Take a tour of quad at El Camino. All four of those qualities are displayed on signs made with United Way volunteers. Teachers teach persistence, grit and determination DAILY. It is at the core of El Camino.

El Camino has a culture of "no excuses" which is a codified system of standards for teachers, parents and students. Honesty, integrity and fairness are lauded at El Camino weekly through a schoolwide telecast and monthly at Top Scholar assemblies.

These data are way out of date as are the reviews. El Camino, since become part of the the No Excuses University program, has become highly acclaimed the "small but mighty" school of Goleta Union School District. The school is small, the staff is incredibly talented and dedicated, and there is a science lab, an engineering program (which includes 3D printing), band, Polynesian dancing - all part of a tight community of parents, students & educators.

I couldn't have asked for a better school! Everyone has been so kind and welcoming. All of the staff are enthusiastic and genuinely concerned about the children. I look forward to a wonderful school year!

The teachers are great. Most of the kids are hispanic and there is little parent involvement. Other schools in the area have more parent involvement and more of a mix of ethnicity. I feel as though El Camino students don't have the advantage as some of the kids at other schools because of this. The schools need to have more of a fair balance amongst them. Its extremely unfair for one school to have 3 parents a day working in a classroom and another to have maybe one a week. Its also unfair for one school to have more kids struggling because of the language barrier and lack of parent support at home while the other keeps moving on ahead with ease. Not to mention the fact that schools with parents in a higher income bracket will be the bread winners as far as fund raising is concerned. Therefore the students obviously benefit more from this than the schools with the lower income parents. The school board needs to get in there and mix it up a bit.
