My experience at ACPA was amazing. Every staff, from the securities to the lunch ladies are very friendly and approachable. The teachers and counselors are always they’re for you and even go out their way to help you, whether that be academically or emotionally. The principal is really invested in us, the students and the majority of the times I see her outside greeting us in the mornings before we start class. Despite being at WATTS, I feel very safe at school.

My overall experience at Animo College Preparatory Academy is Great. I would recommend students to come here.The staff and teachers care about their students. They help us with many things weather its homework, Advice or even if you just need someone to talk to. This school is very good at preparing students for college and the real world.
Overall this school is a good school. I learned a lot about how the world works here from great teachers. Although it is poorly funded because of the American system they truly make the best out of what they have. I loved that we had an LGBTQ+ club and many other clubs where we all could connect and feel welcomed. The staff are great and actually care about the students. Teachers make sure that students are up to date with what is going on in the world.
