9 What parents like… 90 comments 8 Culture and Community “Animas High provides an environment in which my child feels accepted for who he is and is surrounded by others who think education is important.” Small school/teacher student relationships “I love the relationships that very organically develop between teachers and students.” “Great energy from most of the teachers, sense that they love teaching and they are where they want to be - kids react to that.” The Model “Support and expectations of critical thinking and project-based learning connected to the real world.” “College prep/internship support is also excellent.”

10 What parents would like changed 82 comments 9 Better communication about exhibition times ( 5 comments) Liberal bias especially in Humanities (many comments) Students cut class( 3 comments) More communication from teachers/SLC and health issues Better teacher evaluation process, especially new teachers Parents don’t seem welcome Sigs and X Block Address lack of outside space Address drugs/stoned students Transportation/parking issues After school activities More integration across subjects and grade levels More choice art, science More rigor (10th grade parent) Better security

12 Comments on Any Class…. 36 Comments 11 SIGs need improvement ( 1/3 of the comments) “If they play sports, why not another choice for X-Block like art” “Spanish instead of SIG and X-Block made for a long day” “All classes are strong this year - strong teachers, strong content. Good support when needed.” “My student is frustrated by the school's unwillingness to change students' Project Week assignments. Not interested at all in the one placed in. My student self-advocated, but the process was completely inflexible and my child is dreading attending, which is too bad.” “Overall I wonder classes are too easy. Our student doesn't seem to study very much and gets A's. Even though he didn't choose the challenge extensions, the regular class offering doesn't seem as rigorous as we would have expected.”

All she could say is 'AHS prepared me so much for college, it's incredible!' Also, proud to have both my son and daughter attend AHS, they love AHS! Thank you, thank you for providing them with top notch education!” “If the teachers tried to make more of a connection with the parents and in a way market the school I think more parents would feel a attachment and donate more. Right now I feel the message is drop off your kids and give us money. Don't talk to the teachers. Trust me I now have no interest in meeting with any teachers or helping beyond the minimum. I talk to my child at home and correct the misinformation one on one.”
