Why I chose Animas:
After spending k-8 in public a school environment I was dreading having to endure four more years of boring lectures and big papers. While reading the paper, I stumbled upon an article about a different high school which sounded unlike any other school I have had experience with. Animas High School is a project based learning public charter school that boasts creating an enjoyable and engaging environment for students. After spending eight weeks here I could not agree more. The teachers are night and day compared to those I've had in the past. They look like they are enjoying every day and the same can be said about the students. The projects are challenging and I feel like every day contributes to my learning and education. So far this year has been very fun, the projects interesting, and the environment friendly. I am very happy that I decided to come here because, for the first time in my life, I would rather be at school than anywhere else.
