Our Approach


Our Approach

Ánimo Jefferson was founded on the site of Ánimo Ralph Bunche and provides the community with a potential seven-year pathway to college success. The school is already outperforming comparable local schools and is well on its way to closing the achievement gap with schools in more affluent and less socially impacted communities. 


At Ánimo Jefferson, you\'ll find a safe and nurturing environment where students can focus on learning. We are a community for students, powered by a strong college-going culture.

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. 

Free & Open to All Students

We meet students where they are. We are publicly-funded and tuition-free. Our school works to support all students to succeed in college, leadership, and life.

College Readiness

Ánimo Jefferson is focused on preparing students to succeed in college, offering dual enrollment courses and college tours.

Digital Device for Every Student

We want to ensure that all students are connected throughout the school year. We provide all of our students access to Chromebooks and wireless hotspots beyond distance learning.
