I attended Esperanza High School all four years and I very much enjoyed my time there. The administration was always ready to help and you could tell that the teachers cared about their students success and creating relationships with them. My favorite part of attending Esperanza was partaking in the athletics on campus, specifically lacrosse. All the sports teams on campus had dedicated coaches who helped the teams tremendously. Though I wasn't a member of our music program, seeing them perform at games and assemblies was fantastic and you could tell the time and effort they put into their performances. Overall, Esperanza is a great school that anyone would be lucky to attend.

Honestly I truly enjoyed my time at Esperanza. The school spirit and atmosphere was amazing. The school really pushed the PRIDE acronym to help keep our students focus on being the best version of themselves. Most of the staff were always helpful and did their best to aid students not just academically but with any issues they might have had in their lives. At Esperanza High School, we weren’t just a school, we are and always will be a community and a family. The impact that the staff and my fellow peers had on me is unforgettable. The only complaint I have about Esperanza is that there were some teachers that I just could not connect with. By no means are they bad teachers but me, along with many of my fellow peers simply disliked their classes and could not become immersed and interested in the subjects. But at the end of my ride, I will always have nothing but good things to say about my time there. I part ways with Esperanza always in my heart.
My experience at this school was the absolute best. The school spirit and unity that Esperanza has, is what makes it so special. Out of all four years attending this school I had maybe two or three teachers I disliked. The staff is so kind, fun, and truly care about the students. This High School also offers clubs, sports, and programs for everyone. I was apart of the cheer team and Teacher's Pathway, and I truly fell in love with both. I created the best relationships being apart of these phenomonal programs. Esperanza really does not dissappoint and gave me the greatest four years.
