We view our parents and guardians as equal partners in providing our children with meaningful educational experiences. Families are welcome to join our School Advisory Council and actively participate in their student’s educational journey.

We have a strong sense of community with our sister school, Ánimo Jefferson Charter Middle School. Many students graduate from Ánimo Jefferson and continue on their path to college readiness at Ánimo Ralph Bunche, where they can expect the same care and excellence.
