At Esperanza, our vision of academic excellence is, “High challenge, high support, high joy.” Our academic program is fully student-centered. It supports, challenges, and inspires each child. We honor and embrace students’ identities and learning needs. We will continue to be a school that focuses on the growth of each student through culturally responsive teaching and prioritizing restorative justice practices. We will maintain our relationship-centric ethos and our commitment to our program that honors and celebrates the cultural, linguistic, familial, and navigational capital of the families from Lawrence, MA.
