Ánimo Compton Charter School is a public span school located in Compton, California. ACCS serves students in the community of Compton by offering high-quality public education. High quality means that any student at any point can achieve and be successful in college, career and life.
Our teachers make the difference.
At Ánimo Compton, we know that every child's path to success is unique, and it's up to us as educators to help your student find his or hers. Our teachers don't want to just get students into college and careers--they want them to thrive at every stage of life. Maintaining a focus on growth in every classroom practice and achievement assessment helps propel students to long-term success and prosperity.
"If a parent walked up to me and wanted to know why they should enroll their student at Ánimo Compton, I would say that the leadership here is phenomenal. It makes me feel like they care about our students' future. If you have the best teachers, you can get the best students."
Ánimo Compton opened in August 2018, starting with our first sixth grade class. Beginning in 2019, Ánimo Compton will serve grades 6-8 and will roll up to a full 6-12th grade school year by year.
