One of the things I love about Rhode Island Connections Academy is my colleagues. Every day I look forward to collaborating with them in our professional, but also warm and friendly environment. I love that our focus is always on the students and families and that everyone is eager to help and support each other. Rhode Island Connections Academy offers a unique choice to families who need an alternative school setting. It feels good knowing that students who find traditional brick-and-mortar settings difficult due to stress, anxiety, or health concerns, have a safe and high-quality alternative. Teaching here is a tremendously rewarding experience!
During our LiveLesson® sessions, students can collaborate and interact with one another. Most of the LiveLesson sessions are smaller groups than you would find in a brick-and-mortar classroom, which allows students more opportunities to contribute to the conversation. Many students also enjoy coming to office hours, which are less formal and allow them to ask questions or just pop in to see their teacher and other students.
Rhode Island Connections Academy offers a rigorous and well-rounded education for students. The lessons students work on are robust and offer multiple exposures and practice opportunities that allow them to master the standards being taught. The students’ knowledge is assessed in a variety of ways, including quick checks, quizzes, tests, portfolio items, discussions, and reflections.
