Why Animas? I chose Animas because of the opportunity that they gave me. I was enrolled in DHS for all of freshman year. I decided that I didn't like it within the first month. So I asked my dad about Animas and he said “No way that's a school for idiots' '. So I looked it up and asked a couple of friends what it was like. They all said that they loved it and it had a great education system. After that I asked my mom to sign me up for Animas and she did. They put me on a waiting list. But I was so far down on the list I never thought I would get in. I carried on with my Freshman year at DHS and thought nothing of Animas. Summer break came along and I was ready for my Sophomore year at DHS until Animas sent us an email saying that I got in. This email came 3 days before school was supposed to start at DHS. Once I started the project based learning I was hooked and I knew it would be a perfect fit for my learning style. The new friends I have made are amazing. Also the name basis relationships I have with teachers is really helping.
