Teachers Provide a High Level of Support

93% of our parents praise 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 support of the teachers has been outstanding. They are willing to try new things and help my child grow and learn at her own pace. They also value and respect my input as a parent.

I like the fact that the teachers and staff are very caring. They give my student more individualized attention than he had before.


The Curriculum Is High Quality

94% of our parents agree that our curriculum is high quality. Connections Academy strives to bring together the best educational resources in order to create challenging and inspiring lessons for students.

The curriculum challenges my students without being so hard that they can’t figure it out. In the end, they are prouder and have better self-esteem because their hard work has paid off.

I believe the whole curriculum is great. What my son needed was a challenge and an opportunity to show his abilities. That’s what Connections Academy offers.


Technology Enhances the Learning Experience

96% of families agree that Connections Academy technology tools helped to improve their children’s learning experiences. Many parent reviews praise our proprietary learning management system because it helps keep them organized with grade tracking, scheduling, and communication.

I think using the technology on a daily basis is giving my child an advantage educationally. When she leaves school and enters the workforce, she will have stronger computer skills.

The curriculum is enhanced by the computer-based science labs, the use of technology for completing work, and the online resources.
