I have removed my kids from this school. Poor quality of most teaching staff. (One was on his phone throughout classes with the phone going off throughout the kids' exam times.) Many are very unhelpful when trying to catch up on missed work due to child's time off for illness. Not enough discipline, or any with some teachers, in the classroom. Kids are allowed to be on their phones in class. How is any learning accomplished with that??? Learning and teaching are not happening nearly enough in the classrooms. Money driven administration. Little care, if any, from most about changing anything or improving conditions. No AC in classrooms, still. Kids wander on and off campus whenever they please. Security is poor. Many fistfights, plenty of bullying, and ample access to drugs. Don't send your kids to ACHS.
As an alumni, I am very disappointed in how far my school has fallen. The principal stresses the fact that "All of our classes are college prep", which means that those students not on a college track are left behind. Teachers are a hit or miss. We had 2 great teachers - teachers who showed support and concern for their students. At best, the teachers are overworked and understaffed - at worst, they are obviously burnt out and borderline abusive. Getting information from school staff has proven to be difficult - and they've made it very clear that questions from parents are an inconvenience. We were fortunate to have a great counselor in Mr. Taketa. One shining star kept this from being a one star review.
This school is said to have a student percentage of 65% that use drugs. First time offenders are policed through the justice system. Kids just think they will be smarter and not get caught so this system doesn't work. The answer is to rehabilitate like the court system does instead if kicking them out of school and creating a juvenile a record for them to follow around for the rest of his/her life. I believe a crack down is necessary but policing schools are not working as in the case of Adolfo Camarillo High School. The academics are exemplary and the kids that attend receive high ratings in star testing. The drug use in this school and the policing of it are ruining the future of our children's future and resulting in further delinquency. The police that police this school don't deal with the kids honorably despite cooperation. That in itself instills in our kids that the camarillo police are their enemy resulting in the disrespect of their authority. We are dealing with kids here and they make mistakes. Rehabilitating our smart kids is the answer instead this school treats and prosecutes them as criminals for first time offenders.
Great school! But horrible front office staff. Very rude! But great athletic programs and caring teachers.
