Why I chose Animas...
Every teacher I have ever met has always told me to let myself show, but sometimes that just isn't enough. Animas is a place that you can be yourself with no one to judge or criticize you as a person, only friends that complement and accept you for who you are. The teachers and students are amazing, and the curriculum is of a sort that you everything is challenging, but not impossible. At Animas I feel like I am being pushed to challenge myself so that I design my own challenge extensions, and build upon my curriculum. Building on your curriculum is a choice though, here at Animas the teachers push you, but building your knowledge and protecting your future is your decision. I really enjoy the fact that at this school the teachers enjoy their jobs and are excited to help and interact with students. Another thing I really enjoy about the teachers is that they learn from students as the students learn from them, really building a relationship that lasts over the years. I hope to gain a relationship with most of the students, and all the staff. I think this year is going to be amazing, and I can’t wait for the years ahead.
