Animo Leadership High School Reviews

177 reviews
All Categories
Our class of 2018 started with 180 students freshmen year. We graduated with around 129 so we had at least 50 transfers out which bothers me about Animo Leadership. Yet, I am giving it good reviews all around because it is an excellent school. The key is to reach out for help. I love the people I got to meet. Animo Leadership is a good system for top students under, but not the best for struggling students. Senior year, I was a mentor in the mentorship program helping struggling students with their grades. I even gave away my academic polo and academic sweater away to two different struggling underclassmen because I saw potential in them that Animo doesn't always recognize. Outside of that, the teachers are great because they are tough on you because they care. Arc improved with federal money and showed why they are such an amazing afterschool program. Lastly, our college readiness teachers helped put me in a position in where I know I am now ready for college.

I went to Animo Leadership coming from a different community. I transitioned from a Caucasian community to a Hispanic community. The change wasn't easy, but the people there had made it easy. I like how Animo keeps students on track and how the counselors and teachers support the students and help while doing college applications. I feel that the support provided and amount of times that the applications are reviewed helps the student and increases their likeliness into getting accepted. I think that they should change the time that we go in. I feel this because I am usually asleep in my first period due to the time going in.
Animo Leadership does a good job at preparing yoy for a higher education with its emphesis on writing, reading and comprehension skills. It teaches the student to develop a better time management and adapt to rigorous courses with its advanced placement courses and electives. Recently, it has improved immensely in its after school programs and resources for the student to take advantage of.
