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.

Aspire Pacific Academy is very focused on helping students be college ready. After graduating and going to college I realized that they really help you get into colleges and look good on paper. However, APA did not really prepare me in the academics portion for college. Everything is good oriented but it needs that extra push in academics.
The teachers at Aspire Pacific Academy are amazing. They go above and beyond to help students who struggle in classes. They are outgoing and very friendly. Each teacher has their own personality and have different yet successful method when giving out lessons. They have proven to sincerely care about the well-being of their students, even when that's the last thing the students deserve it.
