Principal's Message

Welcome to Esperanza High School.   I am honored to serve as Principal at a school with such a rich tradition of excellence.  The mission of Esperanza High School is to build a better future by guiding students to become positive, responsible, innovative, determined, and engaged citizens.  We expect all students to demonstrate Aztec PRIDE.

Esperanza has always been known for its outstanding programs and high standards in academics, athletics, fine and performing arts, and extracurricular activities.  In addition to the many college preparatory, honors and Advancement Placement courses we offer, Esperanza is proud of our top-notch Career Link academies in both Medical Sciences and Engineering & Manufacturing.   In addition, we offer a Teacher Pathway, which includes a Teaching Students with Special Needs course, and a capstone Principles of Teaching and Learning course, where students will teach in classes at Glenview Elementary School three days per week.  We are thrilled to provide this amazing opportunity to aspiring teachers. Even more important and impressive than the top-notch programs we offer is our culture of school spirit and belonging. We strive to create belonging spaces for all students by providing a wide range of opportunities for students to get connected.   We are truly an Aztec family!

Thank you for choosing Esperanza High School as home for your students.  We value parents as partners in education and hope to work together to provide your students the best high school experience possible. I send out regular updates via email to our Aztec parents, which can also be accessed here on our updates and communications page.

With Aztec Pride,

Gina Aguilar
