East Palo Alto Academy is a school with a great community who tries to bond and connect one another to create a safe environment. EPAA is all about getting you to graduate and to make sure you choose a path after High School. The teachers are an amazing resource and have great support, that is because of the small school size. EPAA is a small school which helps gives each student their right to be attended and the availability to be helped by a teacher or program.
I go to this school and I can tell that this is a good school, they have many programs that help kidsto learn better, but also is a multy-racial school, that is something that makes it unique.
