Last year was sophomore year, the year before was tuff with cohorts and I already didn’t enjoy DHS and what we were learning didn’t interest me. Throughout the past few years my grades gradually went down and my parents noticed this and tried to push me to do better in school. After two unsuccessful years at DHS I wanted to switch to gateway pueblo community college program with my friend. My parents thought differently, that Animas would be better for me. At the beginning of the summer I was set on not going to Animas, even though my parents made the decision. Throughout the summer I met more people from Animas and accepted the idea of attending. As I’ve been here I have decided it's more my learning style, I don’t enjoy longer classes or just being on the computer.
