“We are pleased to announce and hail our 2013 graduates who are heading to great high schools this fall,” said Christopher H. Wilson, Esperanza’s head of school. “They follow in the footsteps of five other Esperanza classes, two of which have graduated from high school with an impressive 100-percent rate. Their accomplishments are a credit and a testament to an Esperanza Academy education, its faculty, trustees, volunteers and donors, and our exceptional graduate support program.”

Esperanza Academy’s alumnae’s high school graduation rate is especially noteworthy because the school was established in 2006 to help address the 45 percent high-school graduation rate in Lawrence.
