Student Success StoriesParents agree that their children are making good progress in our program and are pleased with their child?s academic growth. "Our son has excelled in his classes--an A and B student. He's made several good friends through Connections Academy too, which takes care of the social aspect of learning outside the classroom." Parents praised 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 teachers are fantastic; they are always ready to help in any way they can. For example, when our son struggled with Algebra, his teacher called and spent hours, several nights in a row, on the phone with him, until she was sure he understood the concepts."

The debate on the importance and value of standardized test scores has raged across the country for the better part of the decade. On one hand, a standardized test is one of the easiest and simplest ways to compare and contrast the success of students in certain schools and school districts. On the other hand, some students’ academic abilities do not shine through on tests. Here at OnlineSchools.com, we see the validity in both arguments, which is why we chose to present test data for each school without any editorial comment. Understand that test scores can be a useful indicator of a successful school, but they are not the only indicator. Also please note that each state offers slightly different types and versions of these standardized tests, so comparing test results from one state to results from another isn’t informative, or fair. If you have any questions regarding the test scores we have displayed, please contact us and we will be sure to answer your questions to the best of our abilities. Thank you.
