    Overall Experience: I would do it all over again because I know that I would be able to succeed twice as much knowing the opportunities the school has to offer to students on the honor roll.

    Teachers: My senior year was fantastic because I was able to actively participate with the activities El Camino had to offer. The teachers genuinely care about their students and want them to pass the class. I would suggest any middle school graduate to attend this school with confidence they would enjoy themselves.

    Health & Safety: Over the past year, security has been tightened significantly. It's annoying but useful.
