I chose to transfer to Animas High School because I thrive in group, hands on work and a positive environment. I am motivated by achieving goals that I set for myself and support from my peers. I love that you can build close relationships with your teachers because then they understand you more and know what you will benefit from. I completed my first semester of my freshman year at Durango High School, and I only had one teacher that understood my struggles and supported me because of my past. I admire the positive culture at Animas High because I have not experienced the most positive events since I moved to Durango.
