    I am very proud of been part of the staff from Escuela Popular Dual Language Academy. I believe in is it mission to educate to transform lives. Our community (mainly latino families new comers from different parts of Lationoamerica) are strong and resilient. We face a lot of challenges but believe in our strenghts and know that we will overcome all the obstacles and thrive!

    Escuela Popular consistently performs on par or out performs English Learners in the state of California. Escuela's primary goal is to service English Learners K-12. This school recently obtained six year WASC accreditation for it's two high school academies which is an Accreditation term that most schools do not earn! They have convenient hassle-free and open enrollment. They accept all students regardless of their academic level and/or age. This school offers many services for the entire family. Here a parent can obtain a high school diploma acquire English language skills send their child to the Dual Language Academy and receive FREE childcare for their non-school aged children. What is most amazing is that a student with ZERO English will learn English and PASS the CAHSEE (California High School Exit Exam) within 2 years. Sure they are lacking advanced technology and state of the Art furniture but this is why the community and donors should look into helping EP out. Please read the data and really know the school before rating. EP is a great school that is always seeking to improve. EP does TRANSFORMS Lives of the ENTIRE family.

    There are some districts that offer dual immersion programs which are superior than to the ones offered at Escuela. In order to gain admission you have to take an English Language Proficiency Test. It works out well because it weeds out the kids who would benefit from English Language Instruction an. This school doesn't even have an adopted reading program they say the follow balanced literacy but none of the teachers have been trained in it.

    I'm not sure why the State of California has not closed it. They continue to be on academic probation. They lack the resources and leadership to run a school. No teaching credentials required. Every year more then half of the teachers quit.. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD .. You Will Regret it... Look for another school who provides a dual-language program with a good score.

    I AM CURRENTLY ENROLLED IN THESE SCHOOL AND WILL BE GRADUATING THIS YEAR I HAVE HAD A GREAT EXPERIENCE SINCE I GOT HERE.THIS SCHOOL IS UNIQUE YOU GOT PEOPLE THAT REALLY DO CARE FOR YOU AND THEY WILL HELP IN HOWEVER THEY CAN.I RECOMMEND IT )

    This school administration can't decide if it is a high school or a learning center for English. There is a shortage of certified teachers; yearly changes; lax policy for poor behavior; confusion on who is really running things.
