Why I Chose Animas
The question is more “Why I Choose to Stay at Animas” because I did not choose Animas High School. Originally, my ideal high school experience could be found at Bayfield High School, but my mother had enrolled me into Animas after she enrolled my brother the year before. She promised me that in two months of participating in Animas, if I despised it, then she would allow me to return to Bayfield’s school district. It has been over two months and I have no desire to enroll anywhere else but here at Animas High School. Unlike most high schools, Animas encourages students to work at their own pace and go about problems in their own way. They give students so much autonomy and freedom, I’m shocked that I previously believed that this was a horrible choice for me. I thrive in project based learning and I actually want to complete my work because I want to live up to my teacher’s standards. Its all together just the perfect school for me.
