Meet Our Principal

Dear Ánimo Ralph Bunche Friends,

It is an honor to serve every one of our students and families at Ánimo Ralph Bunche Charter High School (ARB) as Principal. My commitment to this community is rooted in our mission: preparing students for college, leadership, and life. As an educator, it is my priority to ensure our students have access to high-quality education in every classroom as they navigate their academic journey, leading to higher education. My vision is for every ARB graduate to become an agent of change in their community, leading the way and setting great examples for future generations.

I am proud to be part of the Green Dot mission in leading academic reform in South Central Los Angeles. Our team of teachers, administrators, and staff is dedicated to fulfilling this vision. We firmly believe in every student’s potential to succeed and work arduously to ensure we provide the necessary resources and support they need to achieve success. Our work, however, is not the only contribution to our students’ triumph; parent participation and involvement is a vital element to this process.

Dr. Ralph Bunche, Nobel Peace Prize Winner 1950, said, “Hearts are the strongest when they beat in response to noble ideals.” My devout commitment to leading Ánimo Ralph Bunche toward another state of excellence is what makes my heart beat. This is my ideal.

Kim Fuentecilla
