ASPIRA - Eugenio Maria De Hostos
Youth Leadership Charter School


The ASPIRA - Eugenio Maria De Hostos Youth Leadership Charter School is the newest of ASPIRA's three charter middle schools.  We are located in Miami's Wynwood community, located just north of downtown Miami near the artsy Design District. Our mission is to motivate, orient, and assist youth in their intellectual, personal, and cultural development through innovative educational programs. We advocate a holistic approach, which implies that schools, parents, youth, and community must work together to bring about positive results. We serve approximately 325 students in 6th through 8th grade whose parents are interested in greater family involvement in their child's education.  Students benefit from small class sizes (average 20 students per class), which facilitates one-on-one and small group interaction with teachers. 

The main component of ASPIRA-Eugenio Maria De Hostos Leadership Charter School is leadership development. Our goals are to help students realize positive self-worth, gain cultural sensitivity, and build strong moral character. We provide a safe, disciplined environment, high academic standards and social interactions that prepare students for higher education and help them reach their full potential as role models and leaders for the new millennium. Course offerings include Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Science, Art, Reading and Leadership/Karate.  In addition to our academic program, ASPIRA of Florida, Inc. has funded a comprehensive after school program through the U.S. Department of Education's 21st Century Learning Centers Initiative. The program features tutoring in all subject areas and special interest clubs, including the ASPIRA Leadership Club, Computer Technology Club, Karate Club and Newspaper Club.
