When I had just started my senior year in high school, I was looking forward to graduation and moving on to college. However, just two weeks into the school year, I realized I needed a change.
Up to this point, I attended the local public school and did very well as a student. In10th grade I started feeling that the traditional school setting wasn’t working for me. I often felt that I wasn’t challenged enough in some classes and, when the material did get more difficult, I couldn’t get help or the individual support I needed.
“I know the pace in which I best learn, and things just were either too slow or too fast for me,” Katie said. “I didn’t feel comfortable, and it caused me to get complacent academically.”
I enrolled in Great River Connections Academy, which just had opened in August, and offers the same learning platform and curriculum as Ohio Connections Academy.
