Principal’s Message

Dearest Ollin Families,

We are honored that you selected Aspire Ollin as the school for your scholar/s to receive their education.  We believe that you are their primary educator and our commitment is to partner with you on their secondary school journey.   This academic year 2018-19 our school spans from the sixth through the twelfth grade.  We strive to provide a robust and rigorous academic program that approaches education with the belief that all students can achieve at high levels.

We believe this about teaching and learning at Aspire Ollin:

“The teacher is of course an artist, but being an artist does not mean that he or she can make the profile, can shape the students. What the educator does in teaching is to make it possible for the students to become themselves.”  -Paulo Freire

We are excited to graduate our second class this year and to send them off into the world prepared for college and university.  This year, in addition to our academic focus, we will also emphasize what it means to be a kind and positive citizen in our world.  We look forward to bringing you into partnership on these school wide initiatives.

We would like to share with our families some tremendous news about our scholars and staff at Ollin.  We were recently recognized by the Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE), as a California Honor Roll School.  After an extensive analysis of student data for every public school in California, Aspire Ollin University Preparatory Academy was a clear leader in getting students to grade level and beyond and is an Honor Roll school for the 2016 California Honor Roll.  This is a huge accomplishment for Ollin and we are profoundly thankful that you have trusted us with your scholar’s education.  

We are looking forward to working with you and your scholar/s as we work toward an academically successful school year!

With gratitude and kindness,

Joel Ramirez
Principal, Aspire Ollin University Preparatory Academy
