I chose to come to Animas High School because I thought it was the best option for a successful future. My junior year is my first year in Durango, I moved from Aztec. I came to Durango for a new start. I started my junior year at Big Picture High School. I really like the idea behind the learning at Big Picture, but there was not enough structure for me personally. I am more of a hands on learner, and I think Animas provides a good learning style for me. Another thing I like about school is, the environment. Everyone is really nice and accepting. Sometimes school can be hard and frustrating, but I do think that getting challenged will benefit me. I also really like the student teacher relationships, it shows that the teachers care. I really like the way Animas does things and i'm excited to make memories here.
