Nurturing Community

We help every student find a welcoming place in our small school community.

Student-centered Approach

We meet each student where they are, with a focus on expanding what is possible

Ready for College, Leadership, and Life

Our high expectations and strong academics prepare students for high school, college, and beyond.

One Team

Teachers, staff, and families work together to tailor a student's unique experience.

I would advise any parent to send their child to Ánimo because here everything is done decently, they're well taught, and the instructors are very, very good. The school attracts very good teachers, and they're very courteous. I get a chance to interact with the children and the teachers.
