Principal's Message

Welcome to Esperanza High School!   I am honored and excited to serve as Principal at a school with such a rich tradition of excellence.  I have been cheering on the Aztecs for years, as I am beginning my twentieth year working at the school in various capacities.   Our goal at Esperanza High School is to provide every student with an enriched, challenging and comprehensive high school experience in a caring and safe environment.  

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, this will be the inaugural year of our Teacher Pathway, which includes 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.  

We are excited to kick off the 2017-18 school year with our Aztec PRIDE campaign.  Based on input from students, staff and parents, we determined the characteristics we hope all students will demonstrate in their daily lives as Aztecs: P - positive   R - responsible   I - innovative   D - determined   E - engaged.   Our goal is to have both students and staff  demonstrate Aztec PRIDE in all they do.

Thank you for choosing Esperanza High School as home for your students.  We value parents as our partners in education and look forward to the opportunity to collaborate and engage your students and give them the best high school experience possible.
