I love how organized the school is. The staff hold weekly meetings in order to assure students are safe, learning and enjoying themselves. Instructors are scheduled to have office hours for students. However, every instructor accepted walk-ins and or appointment tutoring services. The school is connected with parents as well. Messages are sent to parents on a wide variety of topics; fundraisers, grades, meetings, etc. The school may be small in size, but it offers advantages for teachers and instructors to have more time for their students. Likewise, it's also adept for a class to know each other. Aspire Pacific Academy offers college classes for high schoolers preparing them for a future college course environment. Aspire Pacific Academy is affiliated with both high schools, Huntington Park High School and Linda Marquez for sports. Aspire always puts their students first. Their education and safety is their priority.

My overall experience was excellent, asa student i had fun while learning and the teacher student ratio is good enough to actually get help/improve as a student.There are plenty of resources in school but a change should be made about the range of college classes,specifically a larger range of subjects such as art,more science or businesses etc. However,I highly recommend this school to others.
My experience at Aspire Pacific Academy since my freshmen year has been excellent up to this day , I have always imagined this school to be different from the rest but I have completely changed my perspective of this school and really liked this school as I reach the end of my senior year. Here at Apa I have meet so many great counselors and teachers that have pushed me to do my best everyday. Here at Aspire Pacific Academy you feel very welcomed with teachers and counselors that are approachable for any help anyone may need. The school uniform has changed throughout the years to our own preferable choice. This school is awesome teachers really do seek to help every individual here and fully prepare us for a great future.
