We started with Conenctions Academy for the 2009-2010 school year, this being after my daughter had been in a regular public school for the past 6 years. After we moved within a new school district I was not happy with the test scores and larger class sizes. I researched different schools and found Connections Academy. The first year was a tough start, mostly because I was a little unprepared. But half way through we got a good system going. This year has been great, currently my daughter is in the 7th Grade. The curriculum is outstanding, the communication with teachers is awesome. They have a great online Learning Management System that is easy to use. * You get all the books and materials delivered right to your door by UPS. * Relaxed learning environment. * Tuition FREE * Field Trips, Clubs and activities * Great interactive Live Lessons
