Teachers and Administration highly encourage their students to continue their education by attending a formal academic institution. Also, they are very supportive and interested to talk to you and your plans after high school. Moreover, the classes at this school have a purpose and the teachers are passionate about their job. Every lesson is intriguing and has a purpose, somehow it is connected to the curriculum and the real world. Slowly but surely our school tradition is forming from having spirit week to other fun programs. The cool part about this school is that if there isn't a club of your interest then you are allowed to create your own club! Overall, during the 4 years I attended it was a memorable high school experience.

The teachers and staff at Animo South Los Angeles work hard to provide students with the best education possible. ASLA is especially focused on college preparation. Students are taught all the requirements for college acceptance as well as how to gain financial aid to help them once they enter college. Our basketball and Track Field teams are also very good. Basketball went 16-1 in 2016 and Track and Field went to the finals in 10th grade. Our teachers and staff are highly diverse; however, our student population is predominantly Latino and black. There are many school events organized by our student government so school culture and pride can be improved.
What I liked about Animo South Los Angeles is how small the campus is. Because we have small classes, you're able to get more one on one-time assistance from your teachers. You can get a better understanding of things when you're confused. What I would like to see change is the way administration is with some of their students. Underclassmen are not held to the same standards as upperclassmen. Although it is understandable because we're older and are meant to be the leaders, we should all be held accountable for the same things because it is unfair when we aren't.
