We are a public, tuition-free, college preparatory charter school serving a diverse population in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of East Los Angeles. Our mission is to help transform public education so ALL students graduate prepared for college, leadership, and life.
A Message from the Principal
The goal of the Ánimo Ellen Ochoa Charter Middle school team is to continue to improve our school, community and work hard in making our families partners in their child’s education. It is my personal mission that all students are culminating from AEO not only ready for the challenges of high school, but ready for the demands of what they will face in college, leadership and life. The work of transforming public education and empowering the community is not done alone. You are an important part in making this a reality for your child, and we eagerly look forward to working with you and your family. The road to college starts at AEO, and together we can assure that your child will be successful at Ánimo Ellen Ochoa Charter Middle School.
