About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system.

Oscar de la Hoya Animo Charter High School Reviews
Not a real high school experience.
All you do here is learn (depends on the teacher[some really don't explain what they are teaching.]) and stay for the low budget after school activities if you choose to. Punishments for being late and misbehaving are ridiculous. Anything out of your control can happen and you'll be punished for it if it breaks a rule even if you explain yourself. Counselors are never in their office they're always at some "meetings" students get really frustrated over this. Really wouldn't recommend it, only way students really learn is by 1 by 1 teaching during office hours.
Not as great as most people think. Terrible.
It's a small building with no nurse's office, no library, no lockers (yet each teacher expects like a binder from us), some teachers arent qualified for their work and at times hesitate to help you. It's really broke and there wont be any after school programs this coming year. There is no school spirit, they make us have lunch at the rooftop which is small and not as cool as it sounds, which hardly has any shade and they wont let us in the building when the sun is burning us. There is also no where to go during lunch because the rooftop is all there is. The students at times are also rude and irritating, and you often dont know who your real friends are or you just dont have real friends. The work is confusing because it's just not like the teachers taught you. for example, they teach you how to do the basics of a math question and then give you the advanced stuff which you know nothing about. I say that this school might be good for only one thing: students who don't want to do their work and are lazy because sometimes it puts them on track (not always though) but it's not a good place to go overall. It's stressful and horrid.
I love that my son attends this school and I'm proud to say I'm very grateful of the teachers, the principal and school staff for showing interest in my child's education. As a single parent, it is hard to keep track of my son's activities, but I'm glad I can communicate with his teachers by email, phone calls, parent meetings. Great school.
I come to this school, and really, it is no challenge at all. Everyone gets along REALLY well, and i feel really comfortable here. Education wise; it has the best teachers that truely do care about the students, and its almost impossible to not pass. Its wonderful.
