Re: Private high school reviews
I highly recommend El Sobrante Christian High School in El Sobrante. Small class sizes, individual attention, great teacher/student ratio, athletics, college prep classes and wholesome, non-denominational Christian environment. There are optional trips for the entire high school (mission trip to Mexico, and yearly trip to Hume Lake in the mountains, so new students can get acquainted with their classmates). The students there are genuine and not into cliques. The school doesn't tolerate drugs, skipping classes, swearing. The teachers are dedicated, energetic and love to see the students succeed. And best of all, it's affordable & some need-based scholarships will be offered next year. Call Mr. C. S. Wells, Principal, for a tour at 510-223- 1966 and visit the website at www.escschool.com Satisfied parent of an ESCHS sophomore DC

Re: Trying To Choose A High School
Have you considered El Sobrante Christian High School? It's a wonderful gem tucked away at 5070 Appian Way, El Sobrante. They have college prep classes, small teacher to student ratio, and lots of individual attention. Activities available are sports (basketball, volleyball, track and field), yearbook, leadership, CSF, drama and band. The staff and teachers are caring yet demand the best from the students. Also, there is a one week trip to Hume Lake at the beginning of each school year so new students can get to know others and make new friends. The students are very accepting of new kids, and immediately, they feel welcomed. Call Mr. Scott Wells at 510-223-1966 for a school tour, application and more information.

Looking for an outstanding Christian high school that is just minutes from Berkeley? El Sobrante Christian is the place for you. They have college preperatory classes, small class size, are non-denominational, and employ excellent academic staff. The sports programs are great, AP classes are offered, and they have a state-of-the-art library, which includes academic advising staff, college search and advice, and a computerized career apptitude program. The extracurricular activities are varied (yearbook, leadership committee, homecoming, spirit week). The student body is multi-cultural and multi- denominational. The school environment is structured and geared towards college, with fun activities and events happening all of the time.

I was wondering if anyone could give any feedback on El Sobrante Christian. My child will be starting Kindergarten in September and I wanted some advice/feedback on this school. Mrs Williams

My son attends 5th grade at El Sobrante Christian. I have met many caring and supportive teachers who have all been willing to go the extra mile to ensure my son's success. The academic program has been demanding, at least it has been for my son. I work with him most evenings and just last night, he and I both struggled with finding the answers to some of the questions on the study guide for his science test. The vice principal is fantastic. She is sharp, compassionate and the kids really respect her. I know of kids that have been dismissed for disciplinary problems and I think the school does a good job of making clear the policy around unacceptable behavior. Parents are active and involved in the school and I have met some very genuine people. I am always amazed at the large number of parent who sign up for field trips. It shows, I think, a real committment to the school's program and kid's success. My son started band this year and he seems to really enjoy it. It is a small but caring community and I am very pleased with the kind of experiences we have had. Hope this helps a little. El Sobrante Christian Parent '
