The first ACE school opened in 2008 to serve the most struggling students in East Side San Jose. ACE has grown since then, now serving around 1,100 students! We work with families and communities in the highest-need neighborhoods to create and sustain middle and high schools where students who have been left behind by the traditional school system grow to be college ready. We were founded by a local community organizing group in East San Jose called PACT. -95% of the first graduating class from ACE Charter High School have persisted to their second year of college.
