"WHY I CHOSE ANIMAS"
I am a hands on learner. I used to like the project based learning but after going to mountain middle school it kind of ruined it for me because Mountain did not know how to teach at all. I felt Mountain was like a teach yourself kind of school. That is why Animas is different, they have it together and they know how to teach effectively and not just give a project and then two weeks later with no time to work on it they say its due. Also, the culture here is much better. We all think of each other as equals and not one is better than another. I am pushed by showing up everyday on time and being prepared or you fail that day. Also I am pushed to do a lot more that I would do in middle school. I feel like we are more friends with teachers than other schools here at Animas but I feel like my previous school (mountain) teacher was more like best friends and way closer in our personal lives. One more thing is they ask about your day more. Although that might be why Mountain fails as a school because they are to close that they don't want to teach.
