Esperanza Community Collegial Academy opened in 2005 to provide the Hispanic community with an alternative to public education that focuses on English and Spanish literacy. The school provides a service to students in 9th through 12th grades. Along with core subjects the school provides native language support in Spanish, integrated standards based curriculum, technology based lessons, and project based authentic learning. Other programs available include Spanish literacy, literature program, English literacy, ESL program, accelerated math, math tutoring, and transition to college program.
Students and parents are very pleased with the role the school plays in the community as well as provided a much needed service. The students are excited to be able to learn and to achieve their goals whether to join the workforce or go on to college. The school offers small classrooms which provides a close knit learning environment that aids students in receiving the attention they need to attain their goals and to learn in a quality educational setting.
No AIMS test results were available; however, students at Experanza Community Collegial Academy participated in the TerraNova tests. The percentages of students that passed the exam along with state averages are as follows. In reading, 57% of students passed with the state average at 52%, in language 57% passed with the state at 50%, and in math 57% passed with the state at 50%. Since the AIMS exams were not available and in order to graduate from high school in the state of Arizona students must pass this series of tests, it would be in your best interest to speak with the school to learn how many of their students are passing the exams and graduating each year.
