    Incoming Freshmen: Class of 2024


    We are excited to welcome you to El Camino High School! We wish we could have met you in-person during our Wildcat Camp freshmen orientation event, but we are looking forward to getting to know you this year! 

    2020 - 2021 Materials distribution and registration information

    Even though we will begin this school year with virtual learning, all parents (new and returning) need to complete the annual Data Confirmation process in the Aeries Parent Portal.  The window opened on July 27th.

    Students new to OUSD will first need to complete the enrollment process before they can complete the data confirmation and pick up their materials for their grade level.  Please begin the process by completing the online enrollment paperwork HERE.  Due to the pandemic, we will need to limit the number of people in the counseling office.  Once you have registered online, please call us at 760-901-8031 to schedule a virtual meeting with your counselor to select your classes.

    All students will need to attend their assigned day and time to receive an electronic device (If needed, click HERE for form), textbooks, and ID card to start the school year.  All students must bring the signed copy of the updated Student Emergency Card with them on their assigned day.

    About Our School

    About Us

    El Camino was established in 1975 and was originally named “Oceanside High School East”. It officially became El Camino High School in 1976 and has since maintained a close athletic rivalry with Oceanside High School after becoming its own school. El Camino High is 1 of 2 traditional high schools in the Oceanside Unified School District. Students have a full range of academic, extra-curricular and co-curricular opportunities.

    El Camino has been both a National Blue Ribbon award winner and a California Distinguished School. El Camino High’s 2017 ranking by US News is 200th within California high schools and has earned a silver medal based on student performance on state-required tests and how well students are prepared for college. The student body makeup is 51 percent male and 49 percent female, and the total minority enrollment is 75 percent.
