The East Palo Alto Academy: High School

Support Stanford New Schools and the East Palo Alto Academy High School

East Palo Alto Academy High School Graduation 2012

At the East Palo Alto Academy High School, Stanford puts theory into practice at the grassroots level to create change in the local community by partnering with a charter school for students from East Palo Alto. In California, one in five students drops out of high school before graduation. For students of color, the statistics are much worse. Stanford New Schools is committed to changing these numbers for the students of East Palo Alto, believing that a rigorous, enriched and balanced education serves as a powerful antidote for many of the challenges these students face.
