I was at Durango High School my freshman year and I felt that I wasn't able to challenge myself. I chose Animas because I get to use my creativity to create projects and challenge my self through my work. I am able to push my self to take on challenge extensions and create new more advanced projects to set my self up for the future. I also chose Animas for the student teacher relationships. The teachers care about their students and help push us the be our best versions of ourselves. The student voice at Animas is also another reason why I transferred. The student get to sit in on the staff hirement process and voice their opinion. Animas I about students and that is why I chose it.
