My daughter is a freshman at the school. I must say that this has been an easier transition than I thought it would be. The staff is very supportive and they have implemented a very practical curriculum. I am very pleased.

This school is a very small school with few students. Most children come from far neighborhoods. The budget is low which causes the school to sell food and clothes such as shirts and sweaters to the students. Now they have no way to express since they can't even wear college sweaters which gave them encouragement. The college preparation is probably the best out of everything since most of the classes are remedial and there are few advanced placement classes with few passing rates. The only class that was passing was AP Spanish but now the teacher has been changed so it won't be the same.

academically its a really good school, but a lot of the student feel trapped because its so small and doesn't have as many sports or activities. And because of this, many students aren't motivated to do their best , they have no school spirit.

Not a great school, but better than any other public schools nearby. It is small and personable, which was good for me.

have been pleased with my daughter's freshman year at AVCHS.The school provides strong academics and a safe atmosphere for all students. In addition, they have a variety of both afterschool and extracurricular activities. My daughter loves going to school here. However, if your child is not used to a strict academic atmosphere(projects, consistent studying,and turning in homework on time ) this might not be the school for them.

Students have made tremendous progress and improved their test scores. Their graduation rate has greatly improved and attending college. The students care about their education and future. They are trying to reach their goals.

Although Animo Venice is not a traditional and conventional high school, it offers a lot to its students. A passionate faculty, small classes that allows interaction and students have the opportunity to develop their own leadership skills. Despite it being a new and small school it gave me some things in life that I would not have been able to receive anywhere else- an education, support and an environment to grow

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.

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.
