Why I Chose Animas
I chose Animas High School because I knew that I would be getting a much better education than I would in a traditional school. I am more of a hands-on learner and need to physically do something to understand it better. This school is much different than traditional district schools because the teachers actually take the time to make sure we are getting the help we need and they truly care about our education. Here at Animas the cultural environment is much different. All of the students are nice and helpful rather than ignoring you and pretending that you aren't there. You can tell that they want to take their time to help you around the school and make you feel welcome. In class, you are pushed to improve your work to be the best you can get it, and you also are encouraged to take ownership of your projects. We are taught what dressing professional looks like for future experiences, how to be a good public speaker, and to also take pride in what we do and who we are. The teacher/student relationships is one of the things I like the most about being here at Animas. All of my teachers take the time to talk to me and really push me to do my best.
