Why wouldn't I chose Animas High School is the real question. There is countless reasons of why I chose to go to Animas High School. To begin, I went to Mountain Middle School, a similar learning style as to Animas, in 7th grade transferring from Bayfield Middle School and absolutely loved it. At first the project based learning style was hard to get use to, but it was a challenge that I could overcome. At the end of the year, I was all about the hands on learning and was excited for the next year to come. Sadly, transportation was an issue for my family and I went back to Bayfield for two years. I was thrilled to see my old friends, but when school started I was extremely bored. Freshman year passed, and I was spiritless about school. Then, my mom suggested the idea of trying out Animas High School! I started researching what Animas High School was about and started to get really excited. Having close relationships with the teachers, daily challenges, and project based learning made me decide to change schools. Also, Animas is one of the very few schools that offer this type of learning style and I feel like I should take that opportunity and use it. This school teaches us skills that we can apply in the real world. (Not many schools do that).
