Why I chose Animas High School
I chose Animas High School because I love project based learning. I attended a project based school for 3rd-5th grades. I would later attend one for 8th grade. I absolutely love this model when it was done right, and I knew Animas did it right. My experience in elementary school project based learning was excellent. They knew what they were doing and they did a good job. In 8th grade, my school didn't really know how to properly do project based learning. This was a big disappointment to me because I enjoy this model when it is done well. My 8th grade school made me really sad because I wanted to do this model again but this one was unsuccessful. The student-teacher relationships were bad in 8th grade, the teachers never believed you and would not help you if you had a problem. Animas has teachers that will actually listen and provide advice, which is in my eyes a crucial part of project based learning. I chose Animas because I wanted to experience a well done project base model again.
