Travis Early College High School Reviews
Despite all of the hype that is available, this school is not all that it's cracked up to be. The school is going on it's fourth year and, being with the school the entire time, I can honestly say that there are too many problems. For starters, each new class that is being accepted seems to be going through a less strenuous selection than the prior. Because of the lower classes the students of Travis have already been banned from several local shops, reprimanded by the college, and even kicked out of San Pedro Park! And while the teachers are fantastic, the administrative staff is lacking. (We are on principal AND counselor number three already). Several times when I have personally gone to ask for help, they have been too busy to even acknowledge a concern about my registered courses at SAC - or, even worse, I have found out about my classes the day of (or after) their actual start time. Generally the students are kept totally in the dark until very last minute, about everything from text books to locations and it is just very befuddling. Now, I know that this is a fairly new school and that there will be kinks to work through; but Travis ECHS is already hitting quite a few bumps.
Never before had I had such an incredible, life-changing experience.
