EL CAMINO is the owrst school ever I go there now and literally all my friends are different and teachers are fine I like them. the staff is soooo (UGH) they do not care about you they are so rude and they think because they work at the school they have to right to be ruse as possible at you. The people in el camino are a problem. if I were you I wouldn't send your child here unless if he/she wants to cry because bullying happens here to. ALOT of it. el camino is the worst school.

This school this year makes me unhappy, the teachers are not that good as 3 years ago, losing friends, cry about it makes me hurt even more. Making friends nowadays are soo hard cuz that first u are friends then suddenly u stop talking with them. The ASB thinks that they rule the school, they are always on their computer doing the votes so they can win. My grades are going down cause the teachers of this year don't even teach basically. I think I'm going to transfer to different school. :(.

I LOVE El Camino High School because the faculty and staff give they're all to make sure each student receives the best education possible. It is also nice to see a spirit-filled student body, not just during Homecoming but during all school activities. I am an alumnus of this school and it is wonderful to see some of the same teachers that were there teaching the next generation AND some fellow alumni coming back to teach. Overall, El Camino High School is a perfect example of a school that takes pride not just in academics but in school spirit as well.

El Camino thus far has been very impressive! My children has always attended private Catholic schools. My eldest child graduated from a private high school. Faced w/the state budget cuts and job loss, we had to make the difficult decision of enrolling our middle child to a public high school which is far from what she is used too. Our daughter is currently a freshman at El Camino HS (ECHS). We were pleasantly surprised of how wonderful El Camino HS is. ECHS has great sports and club programs and many wonderful activities available to students. Their sports and club activities promotes school spirit, encourages and pride in their school community! They have a great website for parents to check their children's grade, homework and stay informed of school news and events!! I have emailed the faculty of El Camino HS to ask questions about the school's programs and have also inquired about my child's grades and progress in school. I was so pleased that the prinicipal and teachers promptly replied to my emails and returned my phone calls. The students in general are great. The students at El Camino HS is very diversed in race/ethnicity and socio-economic background, which further enriches the school's student body and community. ECHS academic program include AP and college prepatory courses. Academically, the school scores is competitive. We are very happy at El Camino High School and more importantly, our daughter loves her new school!!! Keep up the good work El Co!

I just moved here this year and chose to go to this school but I'm surprised, there are many cliques at this school, and it makes it so impersonal to make friends. I try and try but nobody wants to make an effort to be my friend. The thing about getting the most spirited award is because our ASB are constantly are on the school's computers voting when they don't supposed to, that's why we get chosen for famous people to show up. Sorry if I just wrote the truth

I love El Camino because the bathroom is always close to all my classes. That's one less thing I have to worry about. Oh and the education is phenomenal. I always learn something new about life after I walk out of class. Its like when I graduate, I'll be able to say 'wow, I learned so much about how to be a good person and how to do math problems the right way and how to spread kindness' This school is so wonderful it makes me want to cry. I can also do impressions of the Godfather without anyone caring because no one judges you in this school! and everyone is considered a friend because this is what El Camino is, a friendly learning environment.

Just recently the cheerleaders had a competition at Great America. There were a lot of parents there and some dads. When you looked across the crowd you saw a sea of red! It was El Camino supporters! We had pom poms and flags and signs and the best part is that we had the football team. We were the ONLY school to have football players in thier jerseys watching the girls preform. When it came time for different teams to perform you heard girls cheering in the crowd. When El Camino took the stage you heard a rumble of big man voices starting a cheer for their cheerleaders. They chanted, 'EL CAMINO.....clap,clap,clap.....EL CAMINO.....clap,clap,clap............Now thats what I call team spirit.

El Camino is absolutely the MOST AWESOME school ever!!! When i went to El Camino it did not seem like I was just going to school, it was as if I was going to another part of my family because when in high school you spend a good 8 hours a day, 5 days a week there and if you are in sports that's another 2-4 hours every day. El Camino has tons of Spirit days and our motto at El Camino is INSPI(RED). We do not only raise the spirits of our own students, staff, and faculty we also include our community and do all that we can to reach out to others and give back. Being an alumni of El Camino has seriously changed my perspective on life because not only was I a student there I was also in track and field, cross country, leadership, and advance dance. I got involved in school and helped give voices to those who were scared to give their opinion. So many of my friends also played a part in sharing the spirit of having the most fun and being friendly towards others because of El Camino's great staff, leadership program, and positive and supportive focus/goals.

The counseling staff is extremely supportive and helpful, and we have a wide range of clubs to choose from.

I'm an economics/psychology teacher at EC and I love it because of our students who attend. On my first ever day on campus nearly five years ago, I met up with a veteran teacher on campus to get acclimated. He'd been teaching there for more than 30 years, and the first thing he said to me was how terrific the students were. I soon learned he was absolutely right! They're diverse, friendly, spirited, and wonderful! I know it sounds corny, but it's really true!

El Camino is not only the most spirited high school in the Bay Area, but it has great diversity. When it comes to school spirit, the differences between all groups of friends tend to subside and all come together to win. It is a very open-minded school and have all the clubs of your interest. The teachers are great and none of them will turn a student down for help. ASB and commissioners all work at their full potential to keep the students active and always feel welcome. Link Crew is another group of students dedicated to make the freshmen feel welcome and complete the transition from middle to high school.

We also are highly involved with charitys even during fun, such as homecoming. We are most known for homecoming, our school spirit, diversity, and welcoming environment. I wouldn't change attending El Camino fo anything in the world. Not only is there great students, but superior staff also. Our leadership director is known all around California for his great achievements along with the award winning leadership class Ms. Padilla runs.

I'd have to say that El Camino has imparted me with such diverse knowledge and wisdom that it is getting me through college. Its institutions such as El Camino that fulfill the standards, and goes above and beyond what is necessary. While staff and teachers create a safe, friendly, and comfortable environment for its students, they also instill a certain standard that will follow you after your high school career. El Camino will prepare you for college, for adulthood, for the work force, for life and so much more. If there's anything I learned from El Camino, it's this: never let tomorrow's fears keep you from moving forward because what you do today can change yours and everyone else's world.

El Camino High School helps prepare their student for their lives in the future. Not only does it provide their students with academic help but also it motivates students to get involved with their school and community. Last year, a local radio station crowned El Camino the Most Spirited School in the Bay Area . We also received recognition by other guest appearances from celebrities and well-known historic figures. As a first year college student, I feel that El Camino prepared me well enough to get through my years of higher education. El Camino High School made my senior year. It made me eager to attend school with the desire to learn more. All the teachers have the same purpose and that is to help the students succeed in every way possible. Is that not what any school should be about?! School should be a place where students can feel safe while being enriched with knowledge that will last them the rest of their lives. If any school deserves this $20,000, it is DEFINITELY El Camino High School!

Academically, El Camino pretty inadequately prepared me for higher education. If your goal after high school is to attend a community or another junior college, then El Camino is sufficient, but if you aspire to attend a University, you will have a difficult time. I am currently a freshman at a UC, and although i took a multitude (7 to be exact) classes at the local community college in addition to all the APs (6) El Camino offered I still found myself vastly unprepared for college. I am extremely behind all my college peers. The work ethic of my peers in high school was far from outstanding. On the other end of the spectrum, the social and extracurricular life of the school is pretty awesome. The band, drama, and other such performing arts departments are intense and amazing. There are a variety of interesting clubs in which to invest your

Great school. Very diverse, gives a good amount of AP courses, clubs are enticing, and the performing arts department is amazing. In my opinion, the musicals and plays are better than School of the Arts.

El Camino High is actually one of the best schools in terms of rigorous academics. The teachers work hard and are generally more than glad to help out the students. The social studies department contains an excellent staff of talented, intriguing teachers who really want students to participate and become independent learners. Life science at El Camino is great, the teachers want to help you when tackling concepts or problems. Specific English teachers try to bring the genius out of students by encouraging them to be creative with their writing

El Camino has extremely diverse clubs and activities available, it's teachers are amazing people who teach just as much about life and the world, as they do about their appointed subject. Of course there are always a few exceptions, but for the most part El Camino is a very fun place to go to school. Of course it all depends on the students around you. If your class as a whole is excited to be there and gets involved, it's the best place in the world to be. If you don't take advantage of all the opportunities offered then your experience will not be as rewarding or memorable. A lot of the teachers there will become friends and contacts for life. :) (there's a new principal now so I really don't know how she will work out, things are changing but the positive effect has yet to be seen.)

When I was a student it was a great school. I've been by and know a few students who have attended and they say the same.

ElCamino c/o 2002. I will admit that we aren't as prepared academically as students in other schools, but we learn more things about real life than others do. ElCamino has plenty of opportunities for students (band, leadership, clubs, athletics etc) and I took full advantage of all of them. Let your kids know that you get as much out of school (and life) as you put in. You can blame the school for not preparing you, but you must also take blame for not helping yourself prepare. The leadership class is one of the top leadership classes out there, which means there are plenty of chances for students to be a part of things and to have experiences that other schools don't have (great rallies, homecoming, etc). So much to say but only 150words. ElCamino gets my thumbs up!

I went to this school from 2000 to 2004. Great teachers, decent food, and great environment to learn.

I went to school there in 1991 - 1995. I did not have enough college prep classes available to compete against some other schools that were in the area for acceptance at Stanford University. Other schools had AP classes available that allowed for my fellow competitors to be at a higher grade point average than me. The playing field is not even for students trying to go to college.
