INSPIRE, the Idaho Connections Academy Reviews

Inspire, an online school, is very good at taking care of the welfare of its children and is good at preparing its seniors for college. It has clubs and field trips like a normal school with the benefit of being able to take classes in your pajamas. Things in the LiveLessons can get chaotic, but it's the same as in a traditional classroom with loud students. I think that Connections is a great alternative to traditional schooling if your student isn't doing well, lives an unreasonable distance from school, or travels often.

INSPIRE teachers are very helpful and they always push me to be the best student I can be. There were plenty of options for the classes I can take. They even offer AP and Honors classes. The teachers are very hands on and are always sending out webmails and doing Live Lessons. I found that the Live Lessons were definitely worth my time as they helped me out so much. They give many options to allow you to actually meet your teachers and other students in your area as well. Overall my time at INSPIRE was great, and I felt that they allowed me to succeed in life.
Inspire is a great online school for students primarily interested in academics. The teachers are always helpful and make an effort to keep in touch about scholarships, summer activities etc.
