The Quality of Texas Connections Academy of Houston is great. My child has every opportunity to be involved in his schooling as all other schools, the great part is that he can go at his own pace and I am able to interact with his learning. We are graphing his progress and he can be involved in activities and sports. They staff has also been very helpful and courteous.
