Building commenced on El Camino High School in 1961 and the school opened in 1962.  From its construction using a combination of glass, steel, and concrete to its purposeful integration of interior and exterior space, El Camino High School is thoroughly modern in its design.  The campus consists of ten buildings positioned around a central open courtyard.  Viewed from the street, the school’s focal point is the gymnasium with its stone façade and stacked zig-zag roofline.
