ESP’s academic program is designed to prepare students for admissions to a four-year college/university or a highlyskilled career. Every student here at ESP is automatically placed into our college/university preparedness program where students are given the opportunity to meet or exceed the A-G requirements. All students at ESP also exceed both the math and science requirements for all universities, the district, and the state of California by completing four to five years of math and/or science. This type of rigorous academic expectation from all our students helps to better prepare any student for a field in engineering, medicine, or science. At ESP, we also work hard in bringing in new partners to further help our students better prepare for their academic career and/or life after high school. This year’s academic program includes a partnership with East Los Angeles Community College. Students during the school day here at our site are allowed to take a robotics and computer engineering course. Our students are also allowed to enroll themselves into four other East Los Angeles Community Colleges courses offered after school. All of these additional college level courses allow our students here at ESP to further prepare for any 4-year college/university after high school.

ESP’s academic program is also set up in a way that allows students to get ahead so that they may have an opportunity to participate in ESP’s Internship program. Mr. Bruce Bivins founded the Internship program back in 2010 here at ESP. It has grown every year since and is now headed by Mr. Brendan Schallert. The program allows upper-division students to intern at a site of their choice the second half of the school day, exposing them to their field of interest. Whether it is in the field of Law, Medicine, Science, Engineering, or Environmental Science, the choices are unlimited.
Here at ESP we also work hard at creating students who are problem solvers and who can think globally and act locally to help increase social justice and environmental sustainability. We require our students to be active participants throughout their education here at ESP through project base learning, hands on projects, and student presentation. Twice a year we also invite all our parents to ESP for exhibition night, where almost all students present their research projects to our parents in an evening full of academic energy!
