Why I chose Animas high school
I chose animas high because I needed a new form of education. I am a hands on learner and learn best by trial and error. I like the model of education at animas because it allows for advocacy and real person relationships with teachers. For example: we call all our teachers by their first names, not out of disrespect but out of realizing that they are equals to us and deserve our respect because of that. I also like the learning environment that all students here work for that allows for more to get done while still having fun and maintaining your sanity. At animas, there is a push to get things done but not an overwhelming one. That is one of the beauties of project based learning. You are able to do more work with less of a payload thanks to project based learning. This also applies to the real world when you are not given a worksheet with a pricetag for work. I’m thankful that I found animas and that it is an option for high schools in Durango.
