Why I Chose Animas
Here in Durango, CO there are only three high schools Durango High School, Big Picture High School, and Animas High School. I chose Animas High School because of the project base learning, I also liked that Animas is a very accepting environment. You also can have a better connection with the teachers because Animas is a smaller school. I like small schools because you can connect more with all the teachers and your peers, big schools are just scary there is more of a chance of not fitting in or being judged. I have had bad experiences in big schools and the teachers didn’t give me enough support especially since I need more help than some people. In Animas as student voice and you can have a mentor a mentor is when a senior gets paired up with a freshman and they meet one a month and have lunch together or meet after school and hang out, this helps the freshman have a friend ships with upper class men.
