Message from the Principal

Ánimo Jackie Robinson isn’t just another high school. It’s a tight-knit community with a college-going culture and high-quality instruction. It’s a launchpad for success where students have access to individualized academic support. Academic coaching, college planning, social-emotional support systems, and career discovery are all part of the Green Dot Model that Ánimo Jackie Robinson offers to all students. Family workshops, after school programs and athletics (including our championship football team) are at the heart of our school community.

When we opened Ánimo Jackie Robinson in 2006, it was in response to the academic and socioemotional needs of our community. We connect students with academic opportunities such as dual enrollment: take college classes during high school! We encourage anyone to come and visit our school, get to know our community and join the family. As all our alumni state with pride: “Once a Monarch, always a Monarch!”
