WELCOME TO ANIMAS HIGH SCHOOL

Animas High School prepares all students for college and postsecondary success by creating critical thinkers and engaged citizens through an innovative, student-centered, project-based curriculum.

AHS was founded in 2009 by community members who saw a need for a distinctive school of choice in the Four Corners region. An award-winning, free, public school chartered through the Colorado Charter School Institute,  AHS serves approximately 200 students in grades 9-12 in Durango, Colorado.

BUILDING A NEW NEST

Animas High School has been awarded $13.7 million from the competitive Building Excellent Schools Today (BEST) Grant process through the Colorado Department of Education for construction of a new facility to be built on the Fort Lewis College campus, with plans to move in Fall 2022!

Curious to see our new “Nest”? View the presentation from our team at Anderson Mason Dale Architects here.
