What do people say about AEWC?


“I was a 10th grader with no credits and no motivation to be in school. AEWC gave me the incentive to work hard. Now I am a college student, working part-time at two law offices and attending an internship at Pepperdine University. Thanks to AEWC and its staff, I’m on the road to a successful future.”

Monica, student

“There is more communication between teachers and students in AEWC. I feel that they really care about me.”

Byron, student

“When I first came to AEWC I was suspicious and had a horrible attitude. AEWC has taught me to trust others and myself. The teachers are always there to support me and remind me about the importance of graduating.”

Ruben, student

“Studying here has made me realize that I can be a successful person, and I can do anything that I want.”

Natalia, student

AEWC is giving me another chance to become a better person. Right now my life is going well. Now, I’m going to school and I have a job. I’m really thankful for AEWC.”
