In my high school in 9th grade, I wasn't doing well. I was an advanced student with special accommodations, and the teachers were not meeting my needs. They couldn't give me the one on one teaching I needed to further my learning. I realized that year, that I had to do something drastic if I wanted to keep advancing and deepening my understanding of certain content. I did a shadow day (visit day) at animas, and I really enjoyed it. In 10th grade, I switched and I'm still here to this day. I chose Animas because it really focused on deepening my understanding and furthering my learning, even in subjects that I previously thought I had mastered.
