Animo Pat Brown Charter High School Reviews

This high school at the moment is really small. We have about 600 students and the campus itself is not very big. Apart from being small it also lacks diversity almost everyone who attends here is hispanic. However, regardless of this the students end up adjusting to their conditions and make as much good use as they can from it. This school is far ahead than the other local high schools when it comes to academics. Due to the fact that we are not offered a lot when it comes to clubs and activities it leads to students being more focused on their studies. The teachers here actually care about the students academically and they want the students to do their work not just because of a grade but because it will help them.This school is centered around the ideas of preparing its students to be college ready, life long learners, and critical thinkers. This being my fourth year here I can confirm that I do believe these core ideas of my school have left an imprint on me.

I am currently a Senior at this school and in the time I have been here I have learned a lot both academic wise and about myself. The Academics are Excellent, the teachers are friendly and they really try to connect to the students which creates a good environment in the classroom. The Administrators are also very helpful to the students and always try to maintain a safe environment school wide. Although there are clubs and activities after school there's not that many due to this is a small school. Since it is a school schools it does allow students to have a greater connection to each other and teachers with creates a positive impact . The food most of the time is good, it's not the best but it's not the worst either. There is poor diversity in this school, the majority are Latinos. Overall, this is a very good school that supports its students.
APB was a very small school bu this meant that teachers and students were more involved. I loved the school, I just graduated and I felt that I learned so much, as the teachers and students grew so did I. The classes were fun, my favorites were Anatomy and AP Calculus. This school is very focused on teacher and student learning, all my teachers pushed me to do better and we had great relationships. They offered so much help when applying to college and I was receiving so much help from my councilor. Overall, it was a great school, good academics, there wasn't much diversity and the school being small meant less sports and I wish there was better food. Even though they served pizza once a month which was great.
