Parent Testimonials

Connections Academy Parents Give the Program High Ratings

Each year, we survey parents to get their feedback on the program and to help identify what we’re doing well and how we can improve. Parents evaluate Connections Academy on a number of criteria, including student progress, teacher support, quality of curriculum, and use of technology to improve the learning experience.

This year, once again, parents who completed the Connections Academy review gave us high marks for helping students succeed academically and emotionally.

Here's what parents had to say about the online school programs.

Students Are Making Good Progress

Over 90% of parents agree that their children are making good progress in our program and are pleased with their child’s academic growth.

This school is perfect for my son. He has improved dramatically not only in his studies, but also in his overall health. He is more outgoing, likes to do his classwork, and is more motivated to do his classwork. This school is the best of the best.
Both of my children love Connections Academy. My son has made wonderful improvements, not only academically but also with his confidence. My daughter has moved up a grade level. She loves the challenge she gets from Connections Academy.


Teachers Provide a High Level of Support

Over 96% of our parents praise the helpfulness of their child’s teacher. Our parents appreciate the dedication and professionalism of our teaching staff and report a high level of satisfaction with their work.

The support of the teachers has been outstanding. They are willing to try new things and help my child grow and learn at her own pace. They also value and respect my input as a parent.
I like the fact that the teachers and staff are very caring. They give my student more individualized attention than he had before.


The Curriculum Is High Quality

Over 95% of our parents agree that our curriculum is high quality. Connections Academy strives to bring together the best educational resources in order to create challenging and inspiring lessons for students.

The curriculum challenges my students without being so hard that they can’t figure it out. In the end, they are prouder and have better self-esteem because their hard work has paid off.
I believe the whole curriculum is great. What my son needed was a challenge and an opportunity to show his abilities. That’s what Connections Academy offers.


Technology Enhances the Learning Experience

Over 93% of families agree that Connections Academy technology tools helped to improve their children’s learning experiences. Many parent reviews praise our proprietary learning management system because it helps keep them organized with grade tracking, scheduling, and communication.

I think using the technology on a daily basis is giving my child an advantage educationally. When she leaves school and enters the workforce, she will have stronger computer skills.
The curriculum is enhanced by the computer-based science labs, the use of technology for completing work, and the online resources.
