Elementary School Student
Henry is an elementary school student at Minnesota Connections Academy. His family decided to enroll him in 2016 because
of the flexibility and individualized learning that Minnesota Connections Academy provides.
I like creative activities like building clay figures, making movies, and creating things with Legos. I also like
gymnastics and playing video games. I usually finish my schoolwork before doing other activities, but sometimes I take
breaks from school or change my schedule around so I have time for everything.
My Online Elementary School Experience
Science is my favorite subject. I particularly like when I get to do experiments. I also enjoy being part of Connections
News by making videos. I might like to join the theatre/drama club when I am older. I’ve enjoyed the school field trips
such as the trip to the zoo, Science Museum, and Minnesota Connections Academy STEAM day. It is nice to see other
students and do fun activities.
All of my teachers have been nice and even fun. They are available if I need additional help. I receive more support and
encouragement than at the previous private school I attended. I don't dread school like I used to.
What I like most about Minnesota Connections Academy is being able to learn at home with a flexible schedule and still interact
with teachers and students.
