I just recently finished up 8th grade at Camino. I was new this year, but over the course of a few months I was able to find my friends and who I hung out with. The teachers I had were absolutely amazing. It felt like I had a friendship with all of them. They went out of their way and they truly were the best teachers I could have ever asked for. The athletics are pretty good, we won the Boys' Basketball championship and got really close with the volleyball tournament. The band program is fabulous. People are generally friendly and approachable. Camino was an amazing school and the best possible way to finish up my middle school years.
I had read/heard bad things about this school and principal before my son attended this school year but I thought it was just unique cases but I soon learned it's not unique and this school is an utter disorganized mess with lack of a leadership. The principal ( Mr. Ramos) is so worried about his image than the actual school and students. Trying to get a hold of this principal is nearly impossible.
My oldest son is in 8 th grade this year and I have to say I never had any kind of issue. In 7 th grade he had a boy bullying him but the school took care of the next day and since then I never had any more problems. The teachers I deal with it are very nice and wanted the best for my son. For the people that had bad things to say about Camino I tell them that unfortunately issues are everywhere. You will always something to complain in anyschool. Go wildcats!!!
What a joke. Apparently this is pretty much the best middle school LC has to offer, which is why we decided to move out of state. An appallingly tyrannical and practically illiterate principal; disengaged, bitter, barely qualified teachers; and an aggressively anti-intellectual school culture. Seriously, "mediocre" is being far too kind.
On multiple occasions I have tried to reach Mr. Ramos the principal and he is never at the school! One of the parents told me Mr. Ramos has 2 full time jobs? Now I understand why he is never at school and his assistants are always taking care of buisness for him.
School has what seems like 10 different 'Principles'. But in reality there just propped up secretaries. These so called principles do not enforce the school bullying policies, and even the written policies are weak. With terms like may rather than will punish. I am confident that the principles are more interested in stopping the reports of bullying that the actual thing. Warning... do not send your child to this school. They will not be protected. Threats are not taken seriously!
If you are looking for a middle school where the teachers and principals are just as immature, bullies as the students than this is the school for you! 3 principals who do not communicate with one another or with the parents when there is a problem. They rather cover it up until --- hits the fan and apologize later. The focus of the school are on the troubled, bully and bratty kids while they fail to keep the good students who are there to learn unchallenged and unprotected. If your child loves school do not have him/ her attend camino, don't say I didn't warn you.
We moved our daughter out of this school because she has had incident after incident of bullying. The last incident she was targeted by a boy and we felt we couldn't let her go back. There are way too many kids there for the school to be able to adequately protect and educate them.
I loved most of my teachers when I was there. They were real with us and helped us grow from elementary to middle and prepped us for high school. There are actually a whole bunch more classes there than high school and students will fit right in. My parents were scared for me with the different leaps into a new school but it turns out that those leaps were tiny steps in the grand scheme of things.
i think this school is awesome!!! it has the most awesome teachers ever!! =)
I believe that Camino is a great school. They have carring teachers and they try to include everyone. Yes, Camino does have lots of help for the people that need it. Being gifted students they should be able to overcome that obsticle of recieving a little less help. Even though I absolutely love the AES program at Camino. The facilitators are very kind and when you need the challenge you do get it. It may just be in a different form than what you would expect. You can be challenged in many areas not just by the book. It is afterall, a middle school. And a great one at that.
Well i go to camino real middle school i feel safe and have a lot of fun while learning im in cheer too they have a great program for that
I think my student has the best middle school because camino is the cleanest middle in this whole town this school even has special classes and my daughter is going into 7th grade reading 10th grade reading and gets just as much attention as the students!
very poor, at Camino they concentrate more on the lower hand than on the gifted students, they don't challenge students,too much emphases is given to sport and less to others.
This school has a lot of security and the teachers are really educated. They are kind and help the students a lot.
