Jaime Escalante developed a relationship with East Los Angeles College. He realized that he did not have enough time during school hours to teach the students everything they needed to know for the Advance Placement exams. He began to teach summer school at Garfield however he eventually lost the ability to teach during the summer. It was at this point that Escalante asked the college to help him. The college was pleased to help Escalante and its community. Not only did the partnership with the college help Escalante by providing a flexible schedule and classrooms but it also helped the program grow.
"The summer program helped me get stronger in Math. I was sad to hear I was going to be going to summer school in the summer. But it wasn’t bad at all. I met some new friends and I can’t wait to take Math in school and get an A."
