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.
