I'm currently a student at ECR and I have to say it doesn't live up to the hype. The school likes to focus on athletics, and by "likes" I mean they spend more time on athletics than other legitimate issues. We're a few hundred students away from having 4,000 students, which is a little extreme. There are some very fantastic teachers, and some who are not that bright. One of my current classes consists of sub- par lectures and more than often "free- time days". By which I mean, "be quiet and do whatever, i'll be on my computer". The physical education provided for non- athletes is also a bit extreme. Two of my very close friends have been pushed to the point that they were sweating and vomiting. However, there are some nice things about this school. The nurse and health office are absolute saints. They helped me when I would come in feeling sick. They are so caring & kind, I have so much respect for them, and some of the teachers are just the same. My biology teacher last year was an angel and helped me with any question or problem that I had. Overall, I give this school 2 stars because the cons heavily outweigh the pros. However, this is only my opinion, take from it what you will.

El Camino Real CHS is a great school. It is well known for both its academics and athletic excellence. Also this is a school a lot of colleges and universities are fimiliar with. Im a senior and had an amazing four years at this school. If you want a good education with well known sports teams then this is a school for you. And to the previous reviews, the teachers do care about students, but if students do not choose to care about their education then that is their own problem.

My school (El Camino Real Charter High School) is very bad, the amount of homework is too much! The school is to strict, the people in the school are very rude and are not friendly at all!! I would never recommend this school to a new student unless he/she has a friend or family relative in the school.

I never write reviews about anything , but the atrocities at this school have been the first thing to ever compel me to write a review. let me start off by saying loud and clear DO NOT GO THERE. PERIOD. with over 4000 kids, you will get no direction, no interest from counselors, teachers don't care about you, you will be so lost. people literally don't have time to care about you, and they don't. what's more, the people there are disgustingly trashy, the school is flat BROKE, and the workload is ridiculous. as a student I speak from firsthand experience. it is the most depressing school, it's so strange: just walking around campus makes you feel depressed instantly. you will hate life. don't go here. please take this advice. if I went through this horrible period in my life, the least I want to do is make sure no one else has to.

El Camino Real Charter High School is a GREAT HS! My daughter attended school there for 4 years and graduated last year. Last year ECR became a independent charter school so now the school is even greater! The teachers are wonderful and the administration is very friendly. My younger daughter will attend ECR in 2014. There is no other public school in the valley that is better than ECR! In addition, El Camino Real Charter is one of the most successful teams in the history of Academic Decathlon, and arguably the single most successful team of the last decade. ECR has a record 6 National Championships, the most of any high school in the Nation.There AP courses consist of: Biology, Calculus AB, Calculus BC, Chemistry, Computer Science A, AB, English Language, English Literature, Environmental Science, European History, French Language, Human Geography, Macroeconomics, Mechanics, Microeconomics, Music Theory, Physics, Psychology, Spanish Language, Studio Art, U.S. Government & Politics, U.S. History, World History - (ECR offers over 10 Honors courses). Hope this helps!

A school where your child can get a great education. The teachers, staff and parents really work together as a team for the better of the children.

I had some amazing teachers there: Roberson, Firestein, Zwick, Aguilera, just to name a few. These teachers deserve more money.

My daughter is just finishing the 11th grade at El Camino. This year has been much better with regarding the teachers she has. The teachers she had last year with the exception of two just did not teach. They would give her loads of homework every night including weekends and holidays. She would have to study for tests on the same nights that they would give her additional homework. They would write the assigments on the board in the class and give no other direction. My daughter and the other students in these classes were basically teaching themselves. I agree that the school is STILL overcrowded. I don't understand why we are still busing students in. El Camino is not a magnet school so I see no reason. Teacher are going to be loosing jobs and funds are going to be cut again. . . Stop busing in students!!!

I completely agree with what the parents are saying. Your kid will get lost. Good luck on advise for college, even with a child at 4.2. They will show your child no direction. Nice people in general. Not motivated or interest in your child's future.

I am a student in El Camino Real High School. This school can be the best and the worst all depends on your perspective. We have the best, yes, with AP passing rates of high 80s to 100, strong academic teams such as Academic Decathlon and Science Bowl, but you will not get this benefit if you don't have the right teacher. El Camino is also the worst, with bad teachers who does not teach and do not care. One advice i have for all new commers is that you better find a senior in that school and take classes according to him or her, because you don't want to go to some classes there.

I am the parent of one student beginning his senior year and another who i pulled out of the school after one year. The school is great if your child is motivated. The school's downfall is not the fault of the teachers or administrators, because there are some excellent ones here. There are also good opportunities for self-motivated and/or high achievers. However, if your child needs encouragement, any amount of individual attention and/or some creativity...forget about it. The school is just too overcrowded and the class size too large. I know, I have both kinds of students and one thrives there while the other didn't find her footing until we found a more appropriate school for her learning style.

My daughgter just completed 9th grade at El Camino Real. I am truly disappointed in the unmotivated teachers, the extremely rude staff and the fact that it is overcrowded. Luckily she is an A student so we did not have to deal with the teachers or staff too often, but when we did it was an awful experience! She will not attend next year. I am willing to drive the distance for a better school with 1/4 of the size enrollment. Over 4,000 kids it outragious!

I don't think I really appreciated the education I received here until I left. I graduated in 2003 after spending all 4 years at El Camino and, although it did not really prepare me at all for the real world, most of my classes did prepare me in some way for college. I took all Honors & AP courses & had some of the most amazing instructors I have ever had the pleasure of being in class with...really, they could have been teaching at the university level they were that great. I would like to see more control over the students as fights broke out (often between minority groups). I think they have stopped busing kids in though which should reduce 75% of the problems with that school.There should be more room for electives & classes geared toward student interests like interior design or architecture. However, they do have film making

el camino is a great school for high achievers. It offers more ap classes than all the fancy, richer schools nearby. Being part of la unified it must accept all students. Therefore, its api will suffer with kids who do not want to achieve or succeed in life. unfortunately, this hurts such a good school and its reputation gets tarnished. there are many great classes, teachers and programs. the school needs to have the ability to maintain the high quality that it always had and to not succumb to the pressure of dumbing down for kids that do not want to better themselves. el camino needs to maintain its reputation as being one of the only shining lights in lausd's domain.

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.

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.

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.
