In my opinion Esperanza isn't very much a good school and I will not recommend it to anyone. However, they are very lenient at times with rules and they let you speak your mind. Most of the teachers don't teach very well and I feel that I could've done better if the teachers actually cared about teaching. This school does not challenge you at all and I don't feel well prepared for college as I'm suppose to be.

As a student in this school I would like to say that some things need work on. Some student behavior is a little nasty. There is some bullying but its never usally resolved. But the academics are ok and some of the teachers are dedicated.
The teacher push students to do their best. Teachers are available through email and during Saturday School.
