    "This school is probably the best high school in the county. Few schools in OC will provide an excellent honors/AP program in a cultured & diverse environment. Let's face it, OC youth is known for being privileged & spoiled therefore because of it's diverse environment El Modena grounds its students & allows them to be more humble and thoughtful about the society they live in. All high school student bodies are cliquey, but ElMo is overall a welcoming and united community. The teachers are very involved in student activities & are very accessible for extra help. The only department that needs reorganizing is the science department since a lot of excellent teachers left. ElMo has one amazing & dedicated math teacher who teaches three levels of math and provides tons of before and after school help. It does need more math teachers & I hope they start paying attention to hiring more dedicated staff like Mrs. Lissner! I recommend all students to take honors & AP classes because they are one of the most challenging & rewarding classes you can experience. The sports department is excellent for anyone interested in softball, or baseball. The football team is laughable but we embrace it."

    "My daughters freshman year at El Modena HS was wonderful. From the first day of registration 2011/2012. The staff and students were kind and heplful. She met new people became good friends with several of them. She joined track n field & cross country. She still continues to get outstanding grades in her Honor classes. Thanks again to the staff and students for making her feel welcome with open arms. Keep it up VANGUARDS!"

    "El Modena High School is a great school for your child to attend. The teachers are dedicated and motivate the students. There is Wednesday tutoring available for students. The ASB and school spirit is wonderful. The principal and staff is very proactive. Parents receive messages at least twice a month about upcoming events or what is happening at the school."

    "An outstanding staff, terrific kids, and supportive parents make El Modena a shining example of what a high school should be. In my 20+ years in public education, I have never seen more committed, caring, or capable instructors. I work at El Mo, and I can assure you that my own kids will be attending there. Go Vanguards!"
