Why I chose Animas
I chose Animas High school because it is a small school and I enjoy the one on one attention that a small school can provide. Cliques and hierarchies are obsolete in a school of roughly 250 students. I feel that my work is being appreciated, and my voice is being heard. A small class size allows me to collaborate more effectively with my peers. Being able to curate a class and communicate with my teachers helps me grow and understand the material, which in turn aides my success. Animas helps me to make connections between what I am learning and their practical usage in the world and my community. My favorite thing about Animas is the close relationships that we are able to have with adults; the teachers and staff at Animas are an especially cool, fun, and caring group of people whom I have the privilege of knowing and working with. I look forward to going to school and gaining new skills and knowledge.
