    "Amador, since then and till now, had always been a school that's very rich in diversity. It's not only rich in academic programs, but also in the different ways to challenge yourself. With that in mind, the atmosphere, in contrast to schools in South Bay or maybe Fremont, is much easier to deal with, and you do find a lot of staff that's always willing to give you a hand when you are struggling with any hardship. However, that also means you need to be more diligent on your own. Amador is just too big for those who are expecting to be centered all the time. You may not be feeling it, but when you are starting to lose your reputation on hard working, you will eventually find out that you are left behind. Get ready to enjoy the great environment that school gives you - but if just being average isn't your thing, it would be better to work hard."

    "I have to agree with the former student, that the teachers are hit and miss. Most of the teachers are highly motivated and student centered, willing to make time outside of class to help struggling students. Only a few teachers have not been responsive to parent emails, most are willing to meet with student and parent. Administration is awesome. Principal knows all the students and walks around campus at lunch connecting with them. Assistant Principals are also very connected with the student body. While the school has 3 special education classrooms there is no specific program to integrate special education students into the extra-curricular and club activities of the school, though in general the student body is open and welcoming to these students. The administration is making a concerted effort to prevent bullying among students and staff. There's a PTA with a lot of parental involvement, especially for the senior class parents."

    "Amador is a great school but like any other large public school, it is really upto the student. There is no hand holding here. Teachers can be a hit or miss. Again, it is a good school if students are self motivated and seek out opportunities. But this is the case with all large public schools. Overall good but be prepared to sail on your own for most part."

    "As a graduate I could not complain ten years ago, this school was fun, full off cooperative staff and students alike. Compared to my little brothers school now as a Sr. in Nevada, this school was the best!!!"
