A Message from the Principal

Dear Families,

Whenever I talk to a parent, I often hear the same sentiments expressed in conversation – each parent wants happiness and success for their child. The choice of school made by parents and their children entails so much more than neighborhoods and sports programs. Everyone wants and deserves a school that can be entrusted to build a path to a bright future for students.

What is the right kind of education that can unlock a successful future? We are certainly living in an unprecedented time in the history of modern civilization. Our world is changing at a speed that’s often difficult to quantify and it’s often hard to see the realities and careers of the future, let alone plan for them. An excellent education however reaches beyond the learning of facts and algorithms to give every participant the ability to think critically about the world that surrounds them. An excellent education entails rigorous and engaging college prep and arts courses that promote critical thinking and creativity. An excellent education challenges every scholar to engage with the challenges in the world and empowers each to believe in their role to solve these problems. An excellent education connects children and adults alike to self and community and builds life changing networks that open doors to college, career and opportunity.

At Ánimo Venice we understand that the choice of schools is one of the most important decisions that a family can make. A choice for Ánimo Venice is a choice for a future that matches the hopes of every parent and the interests and potential of every child. This is our commitment to each of our families and each of our scholars. Join us and learn the life changing ÁNIMO way!
