Connections was my first public school experience, and I’m very happy I went there. I have life long friends and memories. I met some of my favorite people there, and was given the opportunity to graduate early and take classes at my local university. I’d just like to thank CPCS for my high school experience.

I enjoyed the vast amount of learning opportunities, wonderful teachers, vibrant environment, and overall resources dedicated to learning.
I like that it was a small school and there were accommodations made for students who needed them. The teachers knew who each student was, making it easy to show each student the support that they need.
Because it was a small school, there were a lot of favoritism and unfair for some students. Some students would get disciplined for something forbidden while another student who was a "teacher's pet" would not get disciplined but just a warning.
