"Fall down seven times and stand up eight."
"I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure--It is: Try to please everybody."
-Herbert Bayard Swope
"Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts."
- Winston S. Churchill
I chose Animas High School, because I prefer schools that allow choices and more hands-on learning with the projects. The classes are more engaging and we get out of the classroom more often. For example, for our P.E. classes instead of once a day for an hour, we have it once a week for 2 hours. To add on to that we have more options instead of staying in a gym, we have more of an option to choose what we do as a class. Animas High is smaller so that means that the teacher can spend more one on one time, instead of having to limit the amount of time they spend with each student. The school pushes me as a student because of the choices to extend my learning with challenge problems. Students are more relied on by the teachers to get their work done.
