Our goal is to continue to prepare our students for college, leadership, and life. We aim to provide all Ánimo Venice students with the tools to reach their hopes and dreams. At Ánimo Venice we have outstanding teachers who spend hours analyzing academic data to determine current skill levels to set goals for growth and improvement.

Our staff of highly qualified educators and support personnel have developed an array of opportunities for our high school students, both inside and outside of the classroom that will surely unlock their full potential.

Parents, I encourage, value, and need your involvement and support! Your active participation is key to the success of your young Pirates during their high school years. Along with ensuring that your child is completing his/her assignments, getting adequate rest, and eating well, please get involved on campus. I encourage you to take a leadership role as one of our parent room reps for advisory, join our School Advisory Council, help with supervision before school or after school, assist our office staff, or help with sporting events and field trips. When our students see that their families make our school a part of their lives, their pride grows and their determination to succeed naturally does also.
I am happy to announce that we have a new website that I know will provide you with necessary information throughout the school year. We also have an official Facebook page titled Ánimo Venice Charter High School where you will be able to see day to day events and be aware of upcoming key events. I hope you will look for us on Facebook and Like us. Follow the Student Government-managed Instagram page titled ánimo_venice for updates on day to day school happenings, key dates, and events to remember.
Ánimo Pirates, please join us for Back to School Night on Thursday, August 18th from 5 to 7pm. This is the perfect opportunity for you to meet your child’s teachers and to learn their expectations. If you have a 9th grade student, please come 30 minutes early that day to meet with the freshman counselor in the gym. If your student is a senior, please stay to meet with me in the gym from 7 to 8pm to go over graduation expectations Once again welcome! This will be an amazing school year!
