One of a Kind Sustainable Design
Oceanside High reveals the Primo Wind EnergiPlant ! An innovative design which captures energy day and night. A bank of batteries stored inside the structures' benches provides wifi, USB charging and lighting. See how one design student gained understanding about renewable energy through the installation of this project on Oside Week in One Minute Video.

Energy and Environmental Design Course
Students learn sustainable design, energy efficiency, and renewable energy concepts through
o Developing a Zero Net Energy Plan for their school.
o Building a residential circuit
o Evaluating the applications of energy storage
o Designing a green building
The course is supplemented by suggested field trips and internships in the energy and environmental design fields. Students have the option to present their projects at an Energize Schools High School Green Careers Conference event and during the end of year CTE Spring Exhibition.
In the thirty-seventh week of Photography class, @OHSPiratePhotography students were celebrated with one last opportunity to demonstrate all of the knowledge that they have gained throughout the school year. We will share with you... Achievement On A Professional Level
The 2nd Annual CTE Spring Exhibition was a success! Senior students from El Camino, Oceanside and Surfside High exhibited capstone projects highlighting competencies gained in one of 10 different career pathways.
El Camino High School students brought home three scholarship awards this past May after a strong presentation from our all-new, mostly 9th grade team of ACE Program Mentees during the Architecture-Construction-Engineering ACE Program Competition.
Congratulations scholars! A total of $8,000 in scholarships was awarded to this team!
Civil Engineering & Architecture students recreate the Oceanside High Campus in Minecraft.
Utilizing activity-project-problem -based (APB) teaching and learning pedagogy, students will progress from completing structured activities to solving open-ended projects. Check out the neat videos of how this project is unfolding!
Engineering & Architectural Design students compete in a First Robotics Challenge

At El Camino High School, students take Intro to Computer Science, and AP Computer Science Principles. All students have access to the Dual Enrollment CSIT 180 Course (Spring 2023)
Students enrolled in AP Computer Science apply computer software programs to engineering practices as they learn advanced Software and Systems Development. Students develop understanding in Python, 3D Modeling, and Lego Mindstorm Robotics
25Design Students run a local graphic and web design studio.
Since 2016, our student-run graphic design and web design studio called “25 Design'' (http://25designcorp.com/) has been your on-stop-shop for everything it takes to make our local small businesses grow and reach more customers. We offer custom graphic design, professional web design, marketing and branding, even access to web hosting and domain names. It’s the first and only student-run graphic design and web design studio in the tri-city area!
Starting with a solid base of skills in Adobe’s Photoshop and Illustrator, students then move on to learn how to create custom websites from scratch. After creating a solid skill base, the students join together and create a business model that they use to get clients, create useful products, and earn funds that come back to the classroom and support our students (through the Wildcat Foundation) and local charities.
Our success stems from us teaming up with well-known non-profit “Real World Scholars” (https://www.realworldscholars.org/) and Otterbox (https://ottercares.org/) who provide our program with a small amount of “seed money” that we can use for promotion and advertising. That, plus the students’ motivation, creates a learning environment like no other.
Stop by and see us in action any day of the week on the El Camino Campus - or visit us to learn more!
