Why I chose Animas
I chose Animas High because I didn't want the traditional high school experience. I also didn’t want to go to DHS because I don't like big schools. The whole idea of Animas being a smaller school and project based learning appealed to me. I liked how it is hands on and the learning is dynamic. I had heard that the kids that went here had good life skills and felt prepared for life. The project based learning is a lot better learning style for me. I learn better making things and trying to reach a goal rather than remembering things for a test. I went to Mountain Middle School so I had a little bit of experience with project based learning but it's different here. I think that the environment at Animas is really accepting and open to all sorts of people. Everyone is nice and helps each other. It doesn't feel like there there are certain clicks at Animas everybody is just one big community. The student teacher relationships at Animas are a lot different than other schools. You build relationships with your teachers and they mean something to you. I like that they want to get to know you and help you individually to make your experience the best it can be.
