Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year! I am honored to serve as your principal and look forward to an amazing school year as we prepare our young adults for College, Leadership, and Life.

I have four core beliefs about education:

  • Student Development and Achievement is our primary purpose and we must be accountable for all students’ learning and growth at high levels.
  • The teaching and learning environment is the pathway to establishing positive school experiences and to motivate students to dream big and work hard.
  • Students should be expected to be respectful, dedicated, hardworking individuals that  give 100% and seek assistance when in need.
  • Parent Engagement supports and maintains the educational process while setting a personal and character development standard for students. Parents are a vital part of the success of the students at Animo Venice and I invite you to get involved.

I believe in an open door policy, any questions or concern do not hesitate to reach out.   You may contact me by e-mail at jmurcia@animo.org or by phone at 310-392-8751.

News and Announcements

Eight Green Dot Public Schools have been named America's Best High Schools by US News & World Report, the most in the non-profit charter school network's 15-year history.
Green Dot Public School will name the newly renovated baseball and softball fields at Alain LeRoy Locke College Prep Academy after two of Locke High School's most famous alumni: baseball Hall of Famers Ozzie Smith and Eddie Murray.
Six Green Dot Public Schools high schools are among the top 2% most challenging to their students in the country, according to the Challenge Index, a survey by the Washington Post that measures the level of opportunity students have to take tougher courses such as Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate.
As it continues to celebrate its 15th anniversary, Green Dot Public Schools will pause this Saturday to honor the teachers, administrators, counselors, and other staff members who best exemplify the core values that drive its work at its third annual Golden Dot Awards ceremony.
After months of training and miles and miles of running, more than 170 Green Dot Public Schools students now have one thing on their minds: the finish line. That finish line lies at the end of this Sunday's ASICS LA Marathon.
