High School

Noor Mourtada is a ninth-grade student at South Carolina Connections Academy. She has been in Connections Academy since 7th grade and is currently a freshman taking two sophomore classes.

Why I Chose South Carolina Connections Academy

“I wanted to be placed in more advanced courses in order to be more challenged. Luckily, my mom heard about this virtual school which really met my expectations. Learning is becoming more exciting. I have been in Connections Academy since 7th grade, and I’m currently a freshman taking two sophomore classes. I wish I knew about Connections Academy a long time ago.

This school allows me to move to the next level, while my previous school didn’t offer such an opportunity, even when I excelled. And my transition to Connections Academy was easy, as I felt very welcomed.

My favorite moment in Connections Academy was during my first year as a 7th grader. My homeroom teacher was Mrs. Crooks who invited me to NJHS and allowed me to start tutoring my classmates.

 

My Online School Experience

I love my teachers! I try to develop great relationships with them. Since my mother is a teacher, I understand very well my teachers and I appreciate all their hard work.

My favorite subjects have always been math and science. I absolutely love these subjects because they can be applied in real-life situations. I’m also leaning towards becoming a doctor. I find learning about our universe and human beings are fascinating topics.

I absolutely love these subjects because they can be applied in real-life situations.

About Me

I love to do many things such as playing my piano, riding my skateboard, painting, and drawing. I try to fill my days to avoid boredom and find happiness in all I do. All of this happens because I keep track of my work along with the deadlines.”
