My experience in Esperanza Academy Charter High School was pretty great the people there were very helpful. They had different clubs you can get involved in. I personally got myself in a dance group which was the best decision I could have ever made. Most teachers help students when they asked for help and teachers would try to make students reach their full potential. This high school also prepared me very well for college up to the point where college felt easier than high school. The only thing that was a problem for me was that there were some teachers who did not care for the students and their education, but not all teachers were like this most of them were great and were there for the students academically and emotionally.

Many people have said that Esperanza isn’t s good school. But those people never witnessed how dedicated the teachers, are willing to help you succeed which is why I fell In love with Esperanza. One thing I would like to see change is the diversity. Being surrounded by my peers that are all Latinos which is good don’t give me the capability to reach out and learn something new from another person who is not Hispanic.
I really don't have a favorite experience at Esperanza. Everytime I enter the building, I am always safe and happy to attend school. Every day is always a new lesson. We are growing, learning, and being able to express ourself. I really enjoy being in class with teachers that care about us, and want the best for our future. My best experience was in my criminal justice major. I learn so much in that class. I got along well with others. I learn how to accept feedback from other peers including the staff. Our teacher is a lawyer, she teaches us how to communicate. We participated in a mock trial debate against another high school. I really enjoy school due to the fact the teachers are always ready to teach, and answer all questions. I was always told that there is never a dumb question, the dumb question is the one that's not being asked!
