Why I Chose Animas.
I went to Durango High School for my freshman year and I never really liked it. I never got involved with my school and I was only there for my friends I didn't feel like it was the best place for me to learn. At one point about half way through the year I wanted to switch to Animas but it was to late in the year to enroll. Over the summer the first chance I got I applied and got excepted to go to Animas starting Sophomore year. I had to think about if i really wanted to leave my friends at Dhs and go to Animas but in the end I decided it was worth it, And i already had a few friends at Animas. I had shadowed at Animas a few times during freshman year and 8th grade and I really liked it. I love the hands on and project based learning and i feel like that's how I learn best. That's something that Animas has that Dhs doesn't have to offer and i really like that. I also thought it was really cool how involved the students were with there teachers and I feel like that is a really good relationship to have. After my first week at Animas I liked it a lot and I felt like I would learn a lot more with the project based learning and I fit in.
