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.
I've been at Aspire Pacific Academy since the 6th grade and i'm a high school freshman now and it's been a great school, providing extra curricular activities and college classes. The teachers are all very explanatory which helps me understand the topic or subject in more dept. What I would like to see change is for them to be more strict on turning in work and more complex work because I feel they "baby" us to much with giving us exceptions with work and if this changes I believe more people will be on track.
