Why I Chose Animas High School
I am a hands on learner. I love to paint and draw and I incorporate a lot of art into my life. When I went to DHS freshman year I was really struggling with keeping my grades up and paying attention. After hearing about Animas and the project base learning I decided to check it out. At Durango High School I had a lot of fake friends. They were not good encouragement and they created a lot of unnecessary drama. At Animas I met a lot of super cool people that really supported me as well as my art. I met a few high quality friends that have kept my attitude towards life much better. I think that I am challenged academically and it is a perfect amount for me to learn at. My teacher student relationships are professional but I do feel like I can advocate for myself a lot better with my Animas teachers than my DHS ones. I feel likemy descision to switch from DHS to Animas benefits my needs best.
