    "I was in AP and pre-AP classes and the quality of teaching is MUCH DIFFERENT, but that is also because in regular classes, I've noticed that kids don't seem to care very much about the lessons, so the teachers figure, 'Why should we care if they don't?' I prefer advanced classes at any school, though, for this reason. I never had a lousy teacher at El Dorado. They were always very helpful and relatively understanding, and were genuinely interested in kids' ideas and what they've gotten from the curriculum. I could always find my teacher at some time outside of class- before or after school, and sometimes during lunch- whenever I needed additional assistance! I'd noticed, also, that the AP, Dual Credit, and IB classes tend to rely on student discussion and input- this has always been my preferred learning environment, and it's great because then students feel that their ideas are valued and they can absorb more and develop on ideas rather than simply memorize material just for tests and quizzes."

    "Hello I am a graduate at el dorado highschool who honestly thinks the quality we have in our teachers are the best. They give the students time and engagement by helping us out in what we are struggling on and by staying after school to give us more time to help us in what is needed. I would say every teacher has there own technique in teaching as other teachers some go off the book and follow as is and other teachers try different ideas so students won't see it boring in other words . The knowledge these teachers have is amazing all they want is for use to succeed and do what is best for us and graduate. I think we have great staff and awesome teachers thanks to them we are who we are now"
    Topic: Overall Experience | Rating:
    Posted 2016-08-01
    "This school hosted a lot of personal growth for me, and I value that, but I don't think that it is overall a GREAT experience. Students and teachers are nice for the most part, but I think the toughest part to like is the administration. They have recently tightened their reigns on students (and teachers!) and the school feels more elementary than ever. The new principal is from a middle school and she treats high school students with little difference. Not many students or teachers are too fond of her, simply because she seems to bring the school back to stricter rules, allowing for less expression, more elementary concepts like lesson plans written on pyramids and hallway cork boards outside of every classroom, to display very basic, hardly helpful assignments. Maybe she is just out of touch with high schoolers, but it has definitely changed the school culture for the worse and people tend to rebel more out of spite than they have with other principals."

    "We have this program that lets people who want to be future teachers get out and actually try it as they are a teacher assistant. We also have work study so we better manage work and school, even more there is IB and Dual credit courses, they even give you time during school to take the TSI."

    "The academics offered at this school would be coming before or after school for tutoring or make up exams or work. Also if you need help on specific projects or work ."
