A Message from the Principal

Welcome

The Ánimo South Los Angeles Charter High School faculty and staff are excited to work with you as we provide high quality, rigorous, challenging and relevant instruction for your children. Ánimo South Los Angeles teachers seek to empower students to develop a passion for lifelong learning and nurture them by engaging their intellect, natural curiosity while preparing ALL students for meaningful post-secondary opportunities. We seek to instill not only the objectives and skills specified by Common Core Standards, but develop student competence and motivation that will enrich each life. Our daily work together includes creating a safe and supportive environment in which all learners can pursue academic and social learning experiences and fulfill their unique potentials.

Parents are a huge part of the Ánimo South L.A. Charter High School success. Parent involvement increases student achievement and enriches the school community. Please feel free to regularly stop by to observe your student inside or outside our classrooms. By doing so, you are providing valued attention to students, teachers, and the school community. As we build upon existing relationships and forge new ones, let us collaboratively support the social, emotional and academic well-being of each child at Ánimo South Los Angeles. Through this teaming effort, we will make tremendous progress for all.

Lastly, Ánimo South Los Angeles Charter High School is the community’s school. We value and celebrate diversity, as well as the unique talents of each and every student. A strong relationship between the school, the student, and the home will maximize the educational experience for each and every child we educate.
