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 have been a teacher at our school for more than 8 years now, and while we have much room for growth, we've had some great successes that are not reflected by our "6" rating. This year, we had 12 students get into UCLA, 3 get Posse full tuition scholarships at schools in New York and Pennsylvania, our first student going to Dartmouth, many more going to UCs and CSUs and private schools, and many going to community colleges who might have never thought of college. Our mission is to prepare ALL of our students for success in college, leadership, and life, and we take this very seriously and work very hard to reach this goal.

Good school! Teachers help you and make sure to keep an eye on you until you pass the class!

This is a good school for students who need extra attention. If the student is having any problems, the teachers will get strait to the case. The is a closer net of communication in this school, and compared to the rest of the public schools in the area ODLH is a great school that gives much attebtion and care to the students. Though, for the students that are 'advanced/gifted' it may not be the school for them. The classes aren't as challenging, as I have experienced, and being in a class with students of different levels, the gifted student may fall behind or become bored. There are AP classes, but not many to satisfy the need for the gifted students; nor are there Honors classes. But overall, this school is a pretty great one!

The teachers are cool but the principal gives students a slap on the wrist when they misbehave. We don't have school spirit, or choices to take another language than spanish. My other school was better.

This school is really great. I am happy i am attending this school. It has many clubs to join and wonderful teachers who take their time after school to help. It offers several AP classes and sports. It also prepares you for college thanks to College Readiness class. I really recommend this school.

I have a child who is attending his last year at ODLH Animo Charter High. As a parent I have had the best experience, the administration and staff with the parents and students work together as a family. The staff is incredible, I e-mail the teachers and they respond immedietly. The guidance and education the students are given are remarkable. Our community's dream for our childrens future to get to college are becoming realities. The smaller classroom ratio - teacher to student makes it easier for the staff to build a relationship with the students. We need more schools like this one.

De La Hoya Animo High School provides an excellent education for students who would typically get lost in an average LAUSD high school. The extracurricular activities are less robust than other high schools, but the safety, teacher relationships and overall education are far superior.

Posted February 8, 2006

This school tries to drown about all individuality in students, and is incapable of keeping promises to the students and parents. Rules are constantly changed without any prior notice to students, so we get in trouble for anything. A rip in your pants or an untucked shirt can earn you a referral or suspension. The teachers and class size is great, but the school is not safe.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
