A Message from the Principal


Dear Oscar De La Hoya Ánimo (ODLHÁ) Charter High School Community,


It is an honor to serve as principal of such a passionate and giving community. ODLHÁ is committed to serving each student by driving our mission of preparing all students for college, leadership, and life and providing the supports necessary for students to feel safe and cared for by each one of our team members on campus. We are proud to continue to highlight that our school is among the top 10% of high schools as published by the U.S. News and World Report’s Best High Schools Ranking.


Our attitude of resilience is an integral characteristic of each one of our stakeholders – students, parents, staff, community partners. We will continue to strive regardless of the obstacles. The ODLHÁ family continues to come together (figuratively) to ensure our students receive the best education as we open our 2020 – 2021 school year on a Distance Learning platform. The commitment to our mission continues to live in our Distance Learning classrooms daily. ALL our students will continue to be prepared for college, leadership and life.


Please refer to our COVID-19 resources on this website for more related information. You are not alone; we are in this together, and together we will overcome all obstacles. Please reach out if you have any questions. xochitl.avellan@greendot.org
