College Prep

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 Westside Charter Middle School 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.

Family-Oriented

We view our parents/guardians as equal partners in providing our children with meaningful educational experiences. We encourage you to actively participate in your child's education by attending school programs, volunteering, and talking to your child about their day.

College Prep Curriculum

We believe that every child must be prepared for college, leadership, and life - and that begins as soon as our students walk in our doors as 6th graders.
