Community Rating & Reviews

    This school is the best in Oxnard Union High District. Teachers at least AP/honor class teachers are caring and responsible. Campus seems safe. Parking is an issue especially now with the construction of its swimming pool. The biggest problem I have observed is the attitude of front office staffs. A few of them (you know who you are) always give students and parents cold shoulders and use condescending language. Totally agree with one of early reviews--"Very unwelcoming to parents and students." School admin must know about this but couldn't or wouldn't do anything to correct it. What a shame!

    ACHS is a great school. I'm very happy that I decided to take my own children here instead of in the city where they live. The administration is supportive and consistent and the teachers are available for their students and care about learning. I wouldn't want to teach anywhere else!

    Great school API 869. Great staff and Principal. Mr Lipman is an Award winning Principal.

    Great school. Teachers seem to really are about the students. Some special teachers make material exciting and interesting.

    The CP classes are far too simple and the honors classes are hit and miss mainly just tons of homework. The classes are filled to the maximum and the best teachers are extremely difficult to get. Outstanding teachers are rare; most are average. On site daycare for children of students (Little Scorps) - and there is actually a daycare elective (students care for students' children). Volleyball program unorganized and political. Office staff ok. Counselors overworked stressed but kind. Lipman is a difficult person to deal with terrible bedside manner and seems to care little about students. Very unwelcoming to parents and students.

    Here's what all the locals already know in the last few years so many unhappy parents/students have transferred out of this school to Newbury Park High School (which is in a different district) that now Oxnard Union District won't allow any more transfers. See Ventura County Star article on 1-12-12 "Oxnard Union High School District to tighten its transfer policies". Says everything about the attitude doesn't it that the District's response to unhappy parents/kids is not to improve but just restrict people from leaving.

    Been trying to get help about an issue im having at this high school for about two weeks now. Been sent to four different people and all they have done is sent me in a circle around to each other. Who knew it was so hard to get a little help. If there were a choice for no stars to rate this school i surely would have been glad to choose it. People in the office don't care about the kids. and now it comes to my attention that they don't even care when the parents get involved. Not helping means not doing their job. Long story made short... the people who work at this school are the most irresponsible people i have ever come across. I would suggest transferring to another school if your headed for Camarillo High.

    Administration does not crack down on drugs like they say they do. Trust me they don't! Teachers often seem to hate their job or teach too slow or fast! Aside from sports and our acheivements not mentioned I would NEVER go here

    It' the best. Lots of learning and fun times. We're going on the third generation there.

    Staff and administration are very self serving. Office staff is never availible to children or parents with questions or help. Students are often picked on by teaching staff.

    I attended this school for my 9th grade year. My school before was very good but the classes were few. I was excited that there were quite a few classes offered at ACHS. However many of my teachers seemed uninterested in their topics and led to unexciting classes. When teachers aren't motivated it makes kids less interested and in my situation led to dropping grade reports due to the fact I wasn't interested in the class.

    My son graduated from here and was very ill prepared for college. Too many dinosaur teachers. The high school district Oxnard Union has no commitment to Camarillo and justs wants their tax dollars. If you want a first rate high school education go to a Conej Valley school.

    Camarillo High School does not exceed in creating and accepting a diverse enviroment

    The entire administration team has improved the quality of learning at ACHS. I considered sending my child elsewhere but am very please that I didn't. The principal listens to the parents. There are many opportunities for parent involvement. The school has a very strong and capable PTSA. Thank you to administration teachers and involved parents for your outstanding job.

    I to agree that ACHS is a wonderful high school. The teamwork between administration teachers and parents have truly made it an amazing school.

    I am a parent of a just graduated senior and a junior at ACHS. By transferring out the prior principal and replacing her with a former well- liked teacher at ACHS who was also assistant principal at another district school; ACHS has returned to being a wonderful place to learn. This improvement has made a 100% difference in the atmosphere of the school and attitude of the teachers and counselors and that reflects in the students attitudes. There are of course teachers who need to retire and teachers who don't relate well to student as at any school; however Mr Lipman Principal is invested in making this school the best it can be and it shows! All athletes are expected to be scholars first (not instead of) and there have been great gains in the Arts program performing and otherwise. I just wish they had a pool but they use community pools. Great school!

    Camarillo High has been great to our family. I graduated in 1976 and our son and daughter in 2005 and 2008 respectively. Most of the teachers are dedicated and care about the kids. The administration is second to none and really understand students' needs and have created a positive environment.

    I have a son at ACHS starting his 3rd year in the fall. I believe ACHS has really turned around under the leadership of the new principle (Lipman). They encourage the kids to try out more challenging classes if they are motivated to do so. I just watched a presentation from their band drum core Winter guard and saw their choir perform. I have seen Mr. Lipman at band competitions. This is a school that supports the arts as well as academics. I am upset that many choose to send their kids to Newbury Park high over their own district. This I believe is hurting our schools financially. Also I researched the IB vs. the AP programs and found that one is not any better than the other. I think ACHS is doing a great job with the resources they have!Winter guard ans

    My son is now in college and was very ill per repared. My other son is nphs and he is very happy. Terrible school low scores as comp. to conejo valley! don't go to this school!

    My daughter graduated just a year ago. Overall the entire four year experience was not good and a struggle. If a student is a good student they can survive anywhere. The students that needed the help and encouragement are just left to fall through the cracks. There are a couple of good caring faculty and staff but not enough to make the environment one where kids want to be. Everything is focused on sports and there is no emphasis on the arts. It surprises me in a community like this one that we have no interest or support of dance drama and music. My son will start high school in the Fall and we have been fortunate enough to get him transferred to Newbury Park HS. Between the rampant drug problem at Camarillo and the lack of interest in engaging ALL students I don't think he will miss much.
