What Makes Ánimo Ralph Bunche Charter High School Unique

Ánimo Ralph Bunche Charter High School is a public high school in the communities of Downtown, Vernon, and Central Alameda, CA. Ánimo Ralph Bunche Charter High School is one of three high schools opened in 2006 to provide the community with a high-quality alternative to Thomas Jefferson Senior High School which, at the time, scored an API of just 516. The initiative was supported by some of the country’s leading philanthropists. ARB seeks to be a safe haven for students, holding fast to the mission to prepare all students for college, leadership and life.

Ánimo Ralph Bunche Charter High School has consistently ranked in the U.S. News & World Report's Best High Schools list. We share a campus with Ánimo Jefferson Charter Middle School, providing an opportunity to develop a seven-year pathway to college.

ARB serves families from a cross-section of racial, cultural, and socioeconomic spectrums, enrolling students in grades 9 - 12.

College Prep Curriculum

We believe that every child must be prepared for college, leadership, and life - and that this begins as soon as our students walk in our doors as 9th graders.
