Dear Esperanza Academy Families and Community Members,
Vote to approve or deny the Esperanza Academy Elementary School has been scheduled.
Founded in 2000, Esperanza Academy Charter School exists to provide a high-quality education that prepares critically thinking, socially capable, spiritually sensitive and culturally aware young adults who can use English, Spanish and technology as tools for success in the 21st century. Currently, Esperanza Academy serves 1000 students in grades 6-12. Esperanza is also home to a 2 year accredited college which makes higher education more accessible than ever in Hunting Park neighborhood of Philadelphia.
Esperanza is dedicated to empowering Hispanic communities through education, and one way we hope to do this is by completing our educational pipeline to provide a seamless learning experience from Kindergarten to College.
Last year, Esperanza applied to expand our schools to include elementary education. On Wednesday, February 18th, the School Reform Commission will vote at the School District of Philadelphia to decide if Esperanza will be granted an elementary school charter. We are inviting the families at Esperanza Academy Charter High School and Middle School, who have seen the success the students at Esperanza charter schools have achieved to rally in support of this cause.
Transportation will be provided to and from Esperanza Academy High School and the School District of Philadelphia.
When: Wednesday, February 18th
Where: School District of Philadelphia
440 N. Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19130
Meet at EA HS at 3:00 PM sharp!
