Eagles Welcome Assemblywoman Gonzalez Fletcher in GPA Style!

“You all are amazing! You have so much to be proud of! Wait, how many of you were admitted to UCSD? Wow!” 

 Those were some of the sentiments expressed by Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher during her visit to Gompers Preparatory Academy (GPA) on April 7.  The Assemblywoman, after working at the State Capitol until 11pm the night before and taking a 5:30am flight to San Diego, took time out of her busy schedule to visit GPA.  She was welcomed by the GPA Cheerleaders with several acts, including a special “LORENA” cheer and got a “sneak peek” of the upcoming Motown show that will be presented by Musical Production students.  Many parents were in attendance and they expressed their appreciation for the Assembly woman’s service to our community and our state. Ms. Gonzalez Fletcher shook hands and spoke to every student in the Class of 2017, learning which colleges they will attend next year and their future career goals.  The GPA Family was proud to host the Assemblywoman and we look forward to hosting her during future visits.

Class of 2017 Wing Ceremony

Twelve years ago, this community dreamed of creating a school where all children who attended would have a college-prep education, resulting in a place where dreams really do come true.

For the past 7 years, our Seniors have followed their yellow brick road. The result is that today, a record-breaking 98 Seniors out of 113 have earned their wings to fly to college – 87% Seniors have already been accepted to a 4-year university!

They have earned their wings to fly off to over the rainbow and into a land where their dreams will come true – college. We honor our 98 seniors as they enter the auditorium for the last time.
