I chose Animas because of the learning style, the unique culture and free spirit. In my old schools, in humanities we would come into class and start reading out of textbooks. This wasn't a good way of learning for me at all. I first got a taste of project based learning at Mountain Middle School but I could tell that Animas was special. For the first time in my life I’m excited to go to school because we’re learning in such unique and fun ways. I love the culture here because you can be your own person and no one will make fun of you or judge you. I also like how all the students are friends with each other. I never would have thought a senior could be friends with a freshman. Another thing that I came here for is the freedom and spirit. In DHS, if a class wanted to do something special with a project or something, they would have to go through a long process to get it approved but here we have to way less to do cool things. The school spirit is great at Animas. It seems like everyone is having a good time and is happy to be involved in the school. I think I made a really good choice to come to Animas High School.
