Our Students
The EPAPA student body is diverse and motivated. We believe our students have enormous potential to become the next leaders of our community. And they all share a love of our school. Read about our students and share their excitement about the school, learning, and their dream of going to college.



Jocelyn C.

What do you like about EPAPA?
I appreciate that at EPAPA the education is provided to every individual at the school. Everyone is given the opportunity to go to college since they are taking the classes needed to apply.

What is your favorite subject and why?
I have a tough time deciding between Biology and English. I find Biology to be a lot of fun. English I enjoy because I get the opportunity to learn about problems in the real world by reading books and writing.

Where do you want to go to college and why?
I am not completely sure which college I would like to attend, but I would like to specialize in psychology.

Jesus L.

What do you like about EPAPA?
I like the fact that all the teachers want everybody to go to college.

What is your favorite subject and why?
My favorite subject is World History because I am really good at it and it interests me. I've enjoyed learning about different cultures and how the problems in the past are similar to the things that are going on right now.

Where do you want to go to college and why?
I want to attend college (and I wear college clothes) because I want to be the first person in my family to go to college and be successful.

Neymi M.

What do you like about EPAPA?
One of the things I like about EPAPA is that since it's a small school, I feel that the teachers actually care. I noted that at other high schools, if you are failing your classes, you fail. At EPAPA, they try to help you out so that you can get your grades up. Also, it's more strict here — kids do not do whatever they want.

What is your favorite subject and why?
My favorite subject is English because I like to read short stories.

Where do you want to go to college and why?
I would like to attend Stanford because I want to be a doctor and I know that Stanford has a great medical school.

Bereniz G.

What do you like about EPAPA?
What I like about EPAPA is that we get help from the school and teachers for anything and everything — for instance, like helping us go to college. I also like that we can be individuals and do what we think will help us go on.

What is your favorite subject and why?
My favorite subject is English. That's my favorite subject because I love to write and read, but mostly I like it because of the writing. I like to express my thoughts on paper and also be given a topic to talk about.

Where do you want to go to college and why?
I want to go to USF. One of the reasons I want to go there is that, based on my research of the school, it has a really nice campus; there is a possibility that we could have our own dorm rooms with a nice view of what's outside. I have no idea what I want to study yet, but I will know in the future!
