ACES- Since its inception last year, over 7800 students have worked at MBHS ACES, or the After-school Center for Excellence and Support, whose mission is to provide academic support across the curriculum and resources to develop the whole child. ACES, a voluntary after school tutoring program, aligns its commitments to the MBHS community with the four suits from a deck of cards. The Ace of Hearts represents a holistic approach to mentoring, providing access to an array of services to benefit social and emotional growth. The Ace of Clubs represents a club/community effect, providing a consistent place for students to gather to further their education. The Ace of Diamonds represents a balanced approach to support, including 1) English/History, 2) Math/Science, 3) Foreign Language/Fine Arts, and 4) Special Populations such as IB, ELL, or Special Education. Finally, the Ace of Spades represents digging deeper, through access to one-on-one instruction with expert teachers. ACES is located in the Mission Bay High School Library and is open from 2:15-4:15 every Monday through Thursday, staffed by teachers across the contact areas including Tracy Borg, Paul Kreamer, Ron Lancia, Kirk Larowe, Francisco Martinez, Gualter Moura, Richard Oka, Tamara Rasmussen, Nathan Sheehy, Vicki Turner, Linda Vadnais, and Rocio Weiss. ACES offers helpful reference materials, access to computers and printers and supplies, free and healthy snacks, college tutoring from SDSU and UCSD students, specialized help like CAHSEE/PSAT/SAT Prep, college application counseling, and mentorship for life, college, and career. Currently, about 100 students a day are working at ACES, and with a new partnership with the ARC program, those numbers and opportunities will only increase. The center is coordinated by Ron Lancia (x342) and Principal Ernie Remillard (x126)
