ASLA ranked among America's Best High Schools by Newsweek


Animo South Los Angeles Charter High School is a special learning community because of our amazing staff and the families we serve.  We are a public charter school that is dedicated to serve our local community.  Our mission is to prepare every student for College, Leadership and Life.  We are a small learning community that serves approximately 630 families.  We annually graduate more than 90% of our students because we provide a rigorous, college preparatory curriculum that balances enrichment and intervention courses.

Although a small school in comparison to other local high schools, our students have several opportunities to participate in extra-curricual activities that support their preparation for College, Leadership and Life- Panther Student Government, Dance, and Music Production classes, along with CIF sports teams, like Football and Softball, to name a few.  Our staff is committed to cultivating greatness in every one of our students.  We also offer seven Advanced Placement courses and our students can earn additional college credit through our partnership with Los Angeles Southwest College.

Our doors are always open.  We hope to see you on our campus soon!
