The Origin of ACE Esperanza

" The reason, as parents, we chose the word Esperanza (definition: Hope), is that Esperanza symbolizes opportunity, overcoming obstacles, motivation, security, community and family.

Esperanza is the light at the end of the tunnel, even after many have closed the doors on us at our previous schools. More than anything, when our kids have disabilities and we as parents keep knocking on doors for them, we find Esperanza for our children at ACE. 

We see them grow, not only academically, but also emotionally, and they have so much respect for the mission of ACE that every day they demonstrate it with their actions and attitude. Not only at school, but also at home and in the community. That is what Esperanza means to us."

-ACE Esperanza Parent, Rosa Rojas
