High School Academy Under 19

High School Academy Under 19

Escuela Popular’s High School Academy under 19  provides intensive English Language Development so that students are able to meet their goal of graduating bilingual and biliterate. Students benefit from the individual attention afforded by a 20:1 student-to-teacher ratio. What sets the Escuela Popular High School 19 and Under Academy apart from other high schools in the area is the fact that we accept students regardless of whether they are at grade level.

In fact, we meet the student where she/he is at academically and accelerate learning from that point forward. Many of our under age 19 students have not done well in traditional schools.

Relationship Between Teachers and Students

As Lidia Reguerin, the school founder, so wisely explains, “Escuela Popular is in solidarity with its students.” This solidarity is evidenced by the staff’s willingness to accelerate learning by tutoring on Saturdays and after school. This solidarity is also reflected in the relationship structure between teachers and students, which is linear rather than hierarchical.
