About This School
Magnet schools are public schools that offer a specialized curriculum or educational philosophy, often with a specific focus or theme. Magnet schools promote student diversity because they are open to students outside the normal school district boundaries and often attract high caliber students through competitive programs.

El Toro High School Reviews
My daughter is now 15 years old and is in 10th grade. She has special needs so that makes it even harder - being a 15 year old girl all by itself is not easy. El Toro High school has been wonderful. The school psychologist has been supportive, understanding, and encouraging. The students there have been taught respect and tolerance. The teachers are there to see students succeed. We had a choice to high schools to attend, and just on recommendations alone from other parents we chose El Toro. So glad we did! As a parent, I feel like my child matters at El Toro
El Toro High is too hard.
