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".
I was only at Aspira Early College for one year, but from what I could tell the school was good. The teachers that I met all seemed to be very nice and caring people that enjoyed teaching their students. If there is one thing that I could change about the school it would be that the individuals hiring teachers would see the value of the teachers that they have within their school system.
