I've taken in one of my friends and he is a good kid with some issues but as soon as school started for him I reached out and have received a phone call that discussed what I was looking for and Ms. Major stayed on phone talking his schedule out with me which was very impressive the time that they put in to the students. I'm so happy he got into el Camino and I just hope the school year goes as planned for him. I really appreciate the time their staff took out to talk to me personally about what my concerns are and to get a better feel for him as well and understanding. Not a lot of people make time for their students like that.
