I love the Aspira Culture. You can see how hard teachers work in order for their students to be successful. Although sometimes administration and teachers have disagreements, we always work together in order to secure students college readiness and success."Once an Aspirante, always and Aspirante".

My expirence here was amazing knowing all these people and meeting new friends makes me feel like home.This school may be small but all the teachers knows who you are and how you feeling.I really loves this school im going to miss my favorites teachers. Some changes that i will like to see is for everyone to be more motivate on doing more sports and more programs for after school and having the chance to do something.
I enjoy=y being able to have my four years in Aspira. The teachers there and especially the counselors like to make sure that every student there are on track to graduate. With less that twenty five people in the class it is really easy to get the one on one help needed with the teachers. They also offer partnerships with the City Colleges of Chicago to get qualified Juniors and Seniors college credit at no cost to the student.
