In 2012, the REACH Foundation was established to provide students in the Placentia-Yorba Linda school district the resources to expand their knowledge in the areas of Arts, Athletics and Academics.

We believe that exposure to critical thinking through academics, creativity through arts, and a healthy well being through athletics will enable our students to reach their highest learning potential. 

Project Me students from El Camino Real High School have been participating in a Project Based Learning Program funded by the REACH Foundation. They have been studying street art and have an agreement with the City of Placentia to install an art mural within the city. We look forward to updates from the ECRHS.
