At Ánimo Westside Charter Middle School, our mission is to prepare students for college, leadership, and life through innovative instruction, a rigorous curriculum, and the use of the cutting-edge technology. Ánimo Westside Charter Middle School is committed to the education, development, and socioeconomic success of students who historically have been unlikely to attend and excel at an institution of higher learning.

We achieve our mission through a thoroughly student-centered environment that fosters life-long learning, cross-cultural competency, social responsibility, and academic excellence. We align the efforts of family, community, and school to foster these values.

-- Principal Mack Mossett

Financial Planning Workshop for Parents at Animo Inglewood High School

Information - English

Information - Spanish

United Parents Assembly - Saturday, December 13th

This event is a chance for us to take action, with public officials, to improve our communities. We will be urging councilmembers, supervisors, and LAUSD school board members to work with us to increase safety in the community, the number of jobs for youth and adults, to end illegal dumping, and to support raising the minimum wage.

We’re aiming to have over 1500 parents and community members there. With that many people, we will be able to demonstrate our power and show public officials the necessity of working with us.

WHERE: L.A. Convention Center

WHEN: Saturday, Dec. 13th. The bus will leave the school at 9:30 a.m. and we should return by 1:30 p.m. Childcare is available at the meeting.

Parents will each receive 10 volunteer hours for participating.

Reserve your spot before Nov. 13th by calling 323.565.3251 or emailing Ms. Hsin, the Parent Coordinator, maria.hsin@animo.org
