Meet Our Principal

Ánimo Florence-Firestone creates a space where all students can engage in a safe and inclusive school community that fosters healthy, fulfilled, inquisitive, collaborative, and caring learners. Our highly qualified and diverse staff are excited to work together with parents and students to ensure that all of our students are prepared for high school, college, leadership, and life. For these reasons and more, AFF was named a 2023 Middle School to Watch by the California League of Middle School Educators! Congratulations, Lions!

Sincerely,

Joshua Hartford, Principal
