Afterschool Facts:

Students who attend afterschool programs regularly are likely to show improvements in academic achievement and are less likely to drop out of school. (


An abundance of research supports the need for afterschool resources for school aged children and their families. The current estimate of the number of children who care for themselves after school is 14.3 million (Afterschool Alliance, 2004)


The hours between 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. are the peak time for juvenile crime to occur in California. Afterschool programs provide children adult supervision and keep them off the streets and away from negative peer influences. (

Program Overview

Our Goal

Afterschool programs provide an important educational and developmental setting for an increasing number of children and youth. These programs offer opportunities for students to learn, develop, explore., and have fun beyond the normal school day.


Our goal at Hacienda La Puente School District is to provide students with academic enrichment opportunities and activities designed to complement their regular academic program. We also aim to assist with literacy and related educational development services for the families of our students, all in a safe, clean environment.

Math and Science Olympiad

The After School Program Math and Science Olympiad was held on Thursday October 19th, 2017 at the Hacienda La Puente Adult Education Willow Campus. The competitions consisted three team challenges: Math Calculation, Balloon Car, and Spaghetti Structure.

Teams earned points in each of the challenges based on their challenge projects and outcomes. In the end, Fairgrove was able to take third place among some stiff competition, Valinda took second and Cedarlane victoriously took first place in the competitions.

MākMō Launch Event

On November 10, 2016, ASES students from Workman Elementary School along with their principal, Mona Diaz, were invited to participate in the unveiling of the County of Los Angeles Public Library’s stem mobile called MākMō sponsored by Supervisor Hilda Solis. MākMō vehicles are a new delivery system to support makerspaces and promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs. It is equipped with STEM-based learning technology such as computer coding, robotics, engineering, and science. These vehicles will be traveling throughout LA County to bring creative programming to the local communities, and our ASES students were one of the first to utilize what MākMō has to offer.
