Esperanza's History

The Esperanza School originally opened its doors in a tree shaded Montrose neighborhood in 1972.  From its inception our philosophy has been guided by the constructivist, process oriented wisdom of Jean Piaget, a celebrated Swiss educator who believed that children gain true knowledge and abiding self respect through direct experience.  With this Piagetian foundation, our staff works to create a learning environment for the whole child, to inspire their mind, empower self worth and support their spirit.  Through the Esperanza School experience each child proudly makes their unique contribution to the community which is their school and school becomes a purposeful and special place.
