“What I like most about Connections Academy is the flexibility. I can do school on my own schedule, which lets me do other things I love, like performing in the ballet.
I can end school early or skip a day if I must be at the theatre all day for rehearsal and performances. I sometimes have to do lessons on the weekends or at night, but I don’t feel like I’m behind the rest of the class or missing out. I don’t have to wake up at 6:00 a.m. like my friends in traditional school, and I’m usually done before them anyway because I don’t have a bunch of extra homework.
I enjoyed the start-of-the-year picnic, where I got to meet some teachers and students in my classes. That’s how I found out that some kids in my ballet class are also attending Ohio Connections Academy, and now we’re friends.”
