A Message from the Principal
Dear Boxer Parents
It's my pleasure to welcome you to Oscar De la Hoya Animo Charter High School, home of the Boxers. Our school team is committed to providing a safe and intellectually challenging environment that will empower students to become problem solvers and innovative thinkers. Our successful efforts as a school have been recognized with several prestigious awards. We are proud to announce that we have received the California Distinguished School Award, and are ranked top one percent on US News. These are all wonderful honors that recognize the commitment and hard work of our staff, students, and parents. Our students’ success is our number one goal and these awards applaud our efforts.
Parents are highly encouraged to actively join our team by participating in our monthly “Coffee with the Principal,” joining our School Advisory Council, attending parent conferences, and by talking to the teacher about your child's progress and how you can help your child at home. The level of parent involvement is directly correlated to our high level of student success. Make it your goal this year to be actively involved in your child’s school.
The Boxer Family is committed to the success of all students. Learning and teaching is our business and we are determined to be the best that we can be. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to make this year a more successful and memorable school year for your child.
In conclusion, I wish you all a wonderful school year. If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me. My door is always open. firstname.lastname@example.org
