Why did I join Animas? I moved to Durango in the middle of my high school career and with moving here during that time period I had to pick a High school. I was stuck between Durango High school, the typical public high school that I had gone to for a while and inherently there is nothing wrong with that model but I wanted to do something new and what was offered at Animas was interesting and new. I liked the idea of a college prep attitude with the freedom to choose what you want to do and that was a different way of doing things that I before have not seen at school coming from my traditional public school background. So, I took the plunge and went ahead with Animas and managed to get in and since that I’ve felt like this has been a good choice.
