El Camino High School Reviews
My granddaughter graduates this year and her sister next year. They moved there from Nevada and let me tell you the schools in Nevada are the worst I've ever seen. They both are doing wonderful at El Camino. Grandpa and I are very proud of them and the school.
My husband and I are both El Camino High Alumni. Our daughter graduated in 2007 and our son is will graduate in 2011. This school may be filled to capacity but it's level of education has only gotten better! This is a FANTASTIC school with wonderful teachers and staff!
From what I have seen reviewing the stats of El Camino HS, the school appears to be barely holding its head above water, scholastically. I would venture to say in the coming years El Camino will continue to slide scholastically downwards unless the students' parents become actively involved and demand high scholastic standards. Technology can't replace scholastic achievement.
I think El Camino High School is a wonderful school for the teenagers that live in oceanside they staff are very fair and treat the students with all kinds of respect that they deserve to get.
I feel that this is the best school in Oceanside. I attended El Camino 20 years ago and It was then and still remains today the best. The shcool is more advanced today with the help of technology being so up to date. The campus has grown tremendeously and that is to the advantage of the children of our future. I hope they enjoy E.C.H. S as much as I did back in 1984-1988. El Camino Wildcats for life.
El Camino is a very good school,
They have good security around the school, school is clean. Has a science building that is two stories.
