El Camino Real High School is a fully accredited high school offering an alternative settings and strategies to allow students to earn a high school diploma. The California State Department of Education has named El Camino High School as a "Model Continuation High School."
El Camino Real High School is located in the city of Placentia. El Camino is a continuation high school serving approximately 385 students in grades 9-12. El Camino receives students from the four comprehensive high schools who have fallen significantly behind on their credits. The two most common causes are poor attendance and failure to do homework. Students transfer to E.C.R.H.S. at all times of the year. The school focuses on state standards in all of the core subjects without the extras or frills commonly available in a more traditional high school. Lock-step semesters with large classes are replaced by competency-based instruction in small classes with daily monitoring of progress. Students who make significant progress may return to their home school, although most elect to graduate from El Camino Real.
