Antonia Pantoja High School (APHS) was created with the philosophy that all students deserve a second, better chance at obtaining a high school diploma. We understand that students leave traditional schools for many reasons. Some students leave for chronic truancy, economic reasons, housing needs, safety concerns, mental health concerns, legal reasons, and/or parenting concerns. We meet students where they are at, fully understanding that students cannot learn until their basic needs are met. AntoniaPantoja High School, as other ASPIRA schools, works diligently with other community organizations and non-profit agencies, to assist our students in meeting their basic needs, which will then allow them to focus on learning.
