Why I Chose Animas
I chose Animas High School because Animas teaches students in an engaging, enjoyable, and effective way. Animas knows that teaching students based off of a curriculum does not give each kids the education that they require; they know that students all learn different and that it's best to teach each student and each class as they are each unique and require different things. Preparing students with skills that we actually need and teaching us skills to be professional in the real world is one of the perks of Animas High School. When choosing between Animas High School and Durango High School, I thought of what was more important to me, going to Durango High School to be able to be in Orchestra and have one class that I really enjoy or going to Animas High School where I would miss out on Orchestra, but enjoy all the rest of my classes and I decided that it was more important that I enjoy all of my classes rather than really enjoying only one class. I am quite found of the student teacher relationships found at Animas High School. I also like that x-block and exploratory classes are based off of what the students want to do and that students can generate their own clubs based on what they want to see at Animas. Animas to me is a school where the students create what they want to see and where each and every student can find a home that can comfort them.
