I dislike Nueva Esperanza Academy. The school is horrible, one of the worst rankings in the state for a public school. What a shame.

when my daughter attended this school he thought he learned lots and i was proud of him for being accepted to community. hes one of the first going to college but hes struggling a lot and i learned not to send anymore of my kids here. the school aint bad for people just looking for a fam and some relationships and mess around but it gets kinda nasty and bc of that i probably wont send my other son there because he shouldnt be

I went here for my junior and senior year and feel I didn't learn much. I went to temple after and feel nowhere close to prepared for college. Anything that's keeping me standing soooo came from 9th and 10th grade. if there were something i'd change, it woudl be the methods of teaching like their curriculum. students basically are given the answers to everything and learn nothing!

The school's atmosphere is ok, but only if your like everyone else. it's like they make you feel you have to be like one of them, "ghetto" and slack off. I feel as though the school really needs improvements in accepting everyone who wants to learn. I kind of dislike having to be afraid of going to school b/c the scores are one of the worst in philadelphia b/c nothing is learned in classrooms

I've seen great improvement. Higher graduation rates and lower drop-out rates. Keep up the good work Esperanza!
