    USC Esperanza College Prep Reviews

    What I love about Esperanza college prepare the opportunities that they give students to have a high-level education and prepare them for college. This school has a great teacher that work diligently each day and help students one on one on any problems they might be having in the class or in school. The Advanced Placement classes are very promising and each student learns all the information they need. We have certain days in which we have ACT practices, to gives us the opportunity for high scores which means that students will have more college options. Parents are always aware of their children's education process and have the peace of mind knowing that their students are safe. This school always supports their community in a number of ways and try to unite every student in school as a big family, no one is left behind. Overall, this is a great school that helps students down the right path for college and there is nothing I would change about it.

    I am a current junior at the school and have been part of the founding class. Like with any founding class, we started off small, with only 5 teachers. The teachers were passionate about getting the students on the path to college as they believe in Positive Multigenerational Change (PMC). The teachers really care about the students, checking in on them when they need more support outside of the class and making sure they feel successful on the road ahead. What makes the school unique is the inviting culture that they have with the community. They the dance program is one of a kind, bringing in the students and the parents together to foster pride in their backgrounds.
    I am currently a junior so I've been here since the founding of the school. With any starting schools, we lack a few resources but I know the staff if doing whatever they can to get us admitted into a college. The teachers are always there to help, the dance program is an enriching experience, and the parents are significantly involved.
