Equitas Academy #2 (EQ2) opened in 2013 with 100 5th grade scholars. Today, we serve 400 students in grades 5-8.
Equitas provides a structured, achievement-based school community that prepares students to graduate from college-preparatory high schools, four-year colleges and universities. Our college preparatory focus begins in kindergarten, and we continuously strive to ensure that students develop the skills necessary for entrance into high-performing secondary schools.
By providing a small school environment with individual attention, strong relationships between staff and students, and close communication between school and home, EQ2 has offered a strong choice for families seeking high-performing educational opportunities in Pico-Union.
EQ2 was named a Gold Ribbon School by the California Department of Education in the 2014-2015 school year. The Gold Ribbon awards recognize California schools that have made gains in implementing the academic content and performance standards adopted by the State Board of Education. These include the California Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics, California English Language Development Standards, and Next Generation Science Standards. We are honored to be among the schools that earned state-wide recognition.
