California Connections Academy student William Bishop

William B. is a middle school student at California Connections Academy. He enrolled in California Connections Academy because it offers the flexibility and safe learning environment he needs. William tells more about himself below:

“I became interested in California Connections Academy because I was being bullied and teachers wouldn’t believe me at my old school,” he said. “I am excited to finally be in a safe place for me to learn. I can focus on school while staying at my home and learning at my own pace. I also like that I don’t have to get dressed for school every day.

My favorite subjects are math and science. I like how there is always something new to learn and that the courses include a lot of experiments. Science also lets me work with my dad. I also have a good relationship with my teachers. I can send them an email when I need help after a LiveLesson session, and they’re quick to help me out and allow me to correct work that I may have misunderstood.

I use WebMail to keep in touch with my Connections Academy friends, and I can also talk to the friends who play online games on Xbox. Outside of school, I enjoy gaming with my friends and spending time with my family. I also enjoy watching movies, going to the park, and playing Nerf.”

I love California Connections Academy because I feel safe, I get to learn when I want to, and I enjoy working on a computer instead of having to handwrite everything.
