Going to Animo Watts was good because I got to meet new people. What I liked about Animo Watts is that the school provided some educational opportunities by providing students AP Courses and Honor classes. The staff members and teachers are very respectful and helpful. The only thing that I feel needs more changes is the cafeteria's food, I guess I got tired of it. Overall, it is a great school and the students receive help whenever we are struggling.

Animo Watts College Prep. Academy is an okay school. Academic wise some teachers are willing to help no matter what , they stay for office hours and some take there teaching time seriously. While others don't and can't even control their class. We have no school spirit what so ever. We only have volleyball , soccer, and a basket ball team with as well a cheer team. I would love to see more school spirit it makes the school more known and fun. It doesn't feel as though I am attending a high school since there is no gym or anything we have to go to Magic Johnson park for P.E and our rally's aren't actual rallies its more like an announcement and that's all.
Animo Watts is a really great school despite the area it is at. What I like about the school is that the school gives us educational opportunities by joining AP courses and Honors classes. The school also gives us help whenever we are struggling and the staff and teachers are very respectful. The only thing I do not like is the food. Overall, the school is great.
