At Ánimo South Los Angeles Charter High School, our mission is to prepare students for college, leadership, and life through innovative instruction, a rigorous curriculum, and the use of the cutting-edge technology. Ánimo South Los Angeles is committed to the education, development, and socioeconomic success of students who historically have been unlikely to attend and excel at an institution of higher learning.
We achieve our mission through a thoroughly student-centered environment that fosters life-long learning, cross-cultural competency, social responsibility, and academic excellence. We align the efforts of family, community, and school to foster these values.
Founded in 2004, Ánimo South Los High School has served its local community by providing student-centered learning environment focused on preparing its youth for College, Leadership and Life. ASLA is one of the original founding five Green Dot Schools.
