The reason I chose Animas High School was because i have a little bit of experience with project based learning from my previous years at mountain middle school. When I first tried mountain i loved it because my elementary school was terrible and I needed a change. I really liked the project based learning but somewhere at the end of 6th grade I started hating mountain the way they did the project based learning was terrible they gave the students barely any freedom and made the projects feel like tests. And when my friend Jazzlin told me about Animas when i was in 8th grade i decided to shadow during the spring. And my experience while shadowing made me feel like this school was really good with the students and made them feel comfortable at school which at the time was something I had never felt before apart for that brief moment in 6th grade. The teachers are all really nice and welcoming compared to my previous ones. And I made the decision to enroll and after about 2 or 3 months my mom got an email saying i was accepted into Animas and now here I am.
