Our School at a Glance
Helene Pao Atkinson
Led by Interim Principal Helene Atkinson and Assistant Principal Justin Ehrenberg, Ánimo Venice is located on a brand new ‘LEED Certified, environmentally friendly campus in the heart of Venice Beach, California. Ánimo Venice’s API has risen to 765, 40 points higher than LAUSD’s Venice Senior High and the median average for all similar schools. The school is fulfilling its promise to the community through a dedicated, passionate and supportive teaching staff, a challenging academic curriculum, 180 internet-connected computers, athletics, arts, field trips, healthy food, and after–school programs run by the popular arc program that focus on character building, friendship and fun.
Although a newcomer to the community, the school has been quickly embraced and is proud to participate in numerous important community events, such as the Venice Art Walk. By comparison to traditional public high schools, Ánimo Venice is a welcoming and nurturing environment with one of the most diverse student bodies on the Westside of Los Angeles. The school is college-prep with a strong focus on core curriculum skills and a wealth of AP offerings and electives. A low student to teacher ratio allows staff to know all students well, and to tailor instruction to individual needs.
