I chose to attend Animas High school because it's teaching style differs from other traditional public schools I've attended. I wanted to try something new that might help me learn more effectively. This school has such a different environment as well. The students are more accepting than others anywhere else I've been. You can be yourself and embrace your differences without being judged or put down by anyone. The students' personalities at Animas are so diverse and it's really cool to see kids feel happy and accepted without having to hide who they are. The teachers are very accepting as well; they try to build a trusting relationship with the students, and they treat you like a friend. AHS is a project based school, which I enjoy because it challenges you and changes the way you think about things. This not only helps you get ready for college but also gets you ready to handle other situations later on in life. I'm very glad I chose to come to Animas High School.
