WHY ANIMAS HIGH?
Not only is Animas a project based learning school, it is a place where I actually feel like I am getting an education. At the beginning of the year I thought that it was going to be a rough first year of high school. I actually thought that it was going to be as bad as it is in the movies. But it's not. Animas High School has opened up a whole new door to a new learning experience. I chose Animas High School because I figured that I was going to need to have a good education to get a good paying job and be able to support myself in ways that most people could not. I am a visual learner. Visual learning is a teaching and learning style in which ideas, concepts, data, and other information are associated with images and techniques. It is one of the three basic types of learning styles. The educational model here at Animas High School is hard on ideas and soft on organizations. Animas is going to be a great school for me. The cultural environment can change depending on where you are. The culture that I was exposed to at Animas was caring, nice, funny, and most of all the best education that anyone could ever ask for! For the first time, I actually enjoy going to school. Animas High School pushes their students to become more focused in their education and to let us know that they care about our future and that our teachers are going to be there for us every step of the way. Our teacher understand if we need an extension on a project, if we need help with our personal lives, etc. I have become very close with all of my teachers and classmates that I have gotten to know over the first semester. The student teacher relationships are as good as they can get. When we are failing on of our classes, our teachers are always making sure that we are doing our work to get the grade up. I went to Mountain Middle School last year and in 6th and 7th grade I went to miller. I was not able to talk to the teachers at miller like they were a friend. I would call them Mr. and Mrs. I did not like that. Animas High is no ordinary school. It is a school where we are proud to call our teachers our friends. Our teachers aren’t boring at all. They are the best people I have ever met.
