I chose Animas because during the time at Durango High School, I felt that everyday I was just memorizing things over and over to take a test a week later. Then we would forget about all the information we sorta learned. And maybe we did one or two projects every class. At Animas High School all of that changes. We actually get out of our seats, out of the classrooms, and hands-on learn things! Everyday at Animas there's something big always going on. Everyday each kid is amazed and are excited about the things they do here. At DHS, I had no relationships with any of the teachers. None of the teachers ever tried to make any relationships with anyone. While the time I’ve been here, I feel so much more comfortable not only because the school is small and I get more attention, but because the teachers make me feel comfortable. I see the way they interact with other students and it makes me want to get those relationships with everyone here. The teachers really trust us at AHS and try my hardest to give them all the respect and good attitude because everyone here deserves it. That was why I chose Animas High School.
