INSPIRE Parents Give the Program High Ratings

Each year, we survey INSPIRE parents to get their reviews and feedback on our Idaho online school program to help identify what we’re doing well and how we can improve. Our Idaho parents evaluate the online school on a number of criteria including student progress, teacher support, and quality of the curriculum. Here’s what parents had to say about the virtual school program:

Student Satisfaction

Parents are pleased with their child’s academic growth and nearly 94% of parents agree that their children are satisfied with the program.

My daughter absolutely feels she is getting a better education than she did at her 'bricks and mortar' school. She has no distractions and she can feel comfortable asking questions if she is confused about something. She is getting all A's and B's for the first time and she says she has a new found confidence since she's been at Connections Academy.


Teachers Provide a High Level of Support

Nearly 98% of our parents praised 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 staff at INSPIRE is top notch. They are ready and willing to help you in any way. My kids are doing so much better, and their scores are rising.

The teachers are very helpful and are just a phone call or email away.

The teachers were so very helpful every step of the way... I feel the teachers have a genuine connection and care for each student and parent.

The Curriculum is High Quality

Nearly 93% of our parents agree that our curriculum is high quality. INSPIRE strives to bring together the best educational resources in order to create challenging and inspiring lessons for students.

I found Connections Academy’s curriculum to exceed the others I researched. Being able to have this kind of quality without cost is amazing.

Connections Academy is a great education system that provides a learning environment tailored to each student, no matter the level. Your children learn at their own pace and with the learning style that best fits them.

INSPIRE Connections Academy was the perfect combination of a public school and features similar to homeschooling.  It allows stimulating and diverse learning for any age with virtually no cost to the family—while still maintaining boundaries through testing and teacher interaction.


Technology Enhances the Learning Experience

Over 87% of families agreed that our technology tools helped to improve their children’s learning experiences. Many parents appreciated our proprietary Learning Management System for helping to keep them organized with grade tracking, scheduling, and communication.

"My husband, Jeff, is deployed to the Middle East with the Air Force. Considering the limited amount of time we have to communicate, it is very difficult to keep him aware of our son’s performance, grades, etc. During a brainstorm, Jeff logged onto the LMS and it worked. He can now review Thomas’ tests scores, his portfolios, and daily classes from the Middle East. I know this makes Jeff feel somewhat closer and more connected to us. Also, he and Thomas now discuss certain things relating to his education.
