Principal's Message


Welcome to Esperanza Education Center! With Spring right around the corner our students and staff are busy planning for our Spring Dance on March 15th, our first Unified Sports Day at Trabuco Hills High School on April 4th and the CSUF O'Falley Games on May 3rd. With so many fun events to plan for there is a lot to look forward to this Spring.

Statewide Testing will begin soon. Your student's teacher will send an email out regarding the testing days. This applies to our 11th graders and a few 12th graders. 

Our PTA, students and staff are hard at work planning our annual Pancake Breakfast. Mark your calendar for May 19th at 8am. Tickets are $5 each. In addition to our silent auction we will also have local vendors selling their beautiful wares. If you are interested in being a vendor at our event, please email me at This year we are raising money for a new wheelchair van. Come on out and support our fundraiser!

The last day of school is June 13, 2019. Esperanza's commencement is June 12th and Futures is June 13th. Details will be sent home regarding these events soon!
