Why I chose Animas High School
I am a hands on learner. I have always been more interested into the subject when It involves things that are intriguing. I chose the charter school over the “regular” school because I love the hands on and how much the teachers care about their student’s education. I love to design and make art, and going to Animas I knew that I would have a better chance of incorporating that into my art. Also at Animas there is a lot of freedom of your voice being heard, for example there is a lot of organizations for the student’s interests. The environment at Animas is more welcoming than other school because the teachers and students are more come-at-able then teachers and students elsewhere. At Animas the teachers really push you to always do better more beautiful work. They make you get out of your comfort zone so you can get prepared for the future. By doing this we have projects that have professional connection, ownership of work, and having rigorous academics. And lastly the student teacher connection is very strong here and it makes me feel comfortable to talk to someone. These are the reasons why I chose Animas over the others high schools here in Durango.
