Program Elements
The ASES Grant requires that all grantees provide a program which is aligned with, and not be a repeat of, the content of the regular school day and other extended learning opportunities in a safe physical and emotional environment. After school programs in Compton Unified School District consists of three essential components:

  • Academic Enrichment: In addition to receiving tutorial opportunities by CUSD classroom teachers, students who are enrolled in the Compton Unified School District ASES Program also receive supplemental instruction in one or more of the core academic subjects (reading/language arts, mathematics, history and social studies, or science). Each lesson is designed to reinforce previously introduced skills.

  • Project Based Enrichment: Students are exposed to teaching that active, collaborative, and meaning full through long-term group projects aimed at building self-esteem through cooperative groups. Each project is intended to offer students an opportunity to expand their knowledge on a specified topic through visual and performing arts. At the conclusion of each five to seven week thematic unit, students will have an opportunity to showcase their newly found skills to district officials, parents, guardians and community members through a school-wide student showcase.

  • Homework Assistance: Children will have an opportunity to start/complete assigned homework in accordance with CUSD grade level guidelines on appropriate homework time increments. The after school program does not guarantee that all homework will be completed.


Our ASES students at Walton Middle School spent five weeks dedicated to working on their creative stories representing what it means to stand up to bullying. Every week they worked with their partners to create a literary masterpiece that would inspire others to not be bullies and stand up with others against bullies and bullying. On October 25 they presented their incredible stories to their peers and adults that were present.

Our next thematic unit is "Space Jam" which will set our students to embark on a galactic journey learning about the world outside our beautiful planet.


Applications for the ASES program are available in the main office, feel free to ask Ms. Guevara or Ms. Sosa for an application in the main office. Applications can also be found in Ms. Winton's office as well as from the ASES main classroom in room 60.
