Principal's message:


Dear Students and Parents,


Welcome back!

I always enjoy the beginning of the school year, and this year is no exception. With high hopes and new goals, the Esperanza High School staff looks forward to the 2022-2023 school year and renewing our efforts to help our students succeed.  We are especially optimistic this year because of the positive changes underway with our curriculum and strong focus on College and Career Readiness.

In keeping with the goal of Gridley Unified School District, it is the purpose of Esperanza High School to provide a safe, nurturing environment that promotes a positive learning experience for academic success, effective citizenship, and constructive student conduct. We are all committed to upgrading our collective aspirations for what we want our students to learn, grow and become….an absolute privilege to see each day!

We are deeply committed to making our school as safe, productive, and enjoyable.  We encourage parent participation  and are available to keep you up-to-date on your student's progress.
