Esperanza High School has been dedicated to helping students find the departments, friends, and work they need to succeed in the future. There are amazing teachers that work there and that I personally have formed great bonds with, as well as that have helped me in pursuing further knowledge of that field. However just as in every school there are some teachers, mainly in the foreign language department, where multiple students will drop out or have an unsatisfactory experience because of teaching styles and personalities of the instructor. The school also sometimes neglects other departments like band and theatre, however in the past year or two they have strived to remedy this inequality, and this trend will hopefully continue in the future years. At the end of the day, High school may be difficult, but Esperanza High School’s mentality and dedication to education makes it worth it.

Esperanza High School has helped me not only excel academically and develop characteristically, but triumph with experiences collected from all aspects. I have partaken in our Superior ranked choir, one of our many renown athletic teams, ROP Medical Sciences Academy, and several school clubs including PTSA and HOSA. Involvement with these extracurriculars alongside academics has allowed me to form strong bonds with friends and teammates, connections with teachers, and gratifying memories that could survive lifetimes. Not only has this excellent school helped me transition into a brighter future, but it has provided me with life-changing experiences that have truly inspired me to continue growing as a person to improve upon myself and give to others like Esperanza gave so much to me. Upon entrance into the school I was doubtful my dulled aspirations or quiet personality would change into the confident dreamer and go-getter I am today. Afterall, Esperanza means "hope" in Spanish.
I loved attending high school at EHS! I was a part of the medical academy all 4 years and it was by far the best thing for me in high school. Not only did we get hands-on experience for skills like injections, EKGs, venipuncture, lung sounds, etc., we also graduated high school as Medical Assistants able to work in a doctors office or clinic. Very unique program and I loved my time there with Mrs. Easton!
