A note from the Founder,
Esther Concepción

This school has been a long time in the making. My experiences as a student and teacher have helped shape the Drake Academy of Excellence into what it is today. Looking back on my experiences as a student, school was not a place that inspired me and I wasn't motivated to put in much effort.
