Texas Connections Academy has been a fantastic experience. The teachers are great and always willing to work with you and provide resources to help you succeed. I have been attending Connections Academy for five years now and it has only improved every year. Additionally, you don't miss out on the high school experience by attending Connections Academy; you interact with your teachers and other students frequently, especially if you regularly attend classes or are a part of a club or student council. The administration is always ready to help you with any technical difficulties, teachers are very aware of safety on field trips, and TCAH greatly encourages a diverse student culture. In addition, classes and deadlines are very flexible, which is very valuable for competitive athletes. Overall, a great school!
It's the best school which really helps you to work at your own pace. It not only helps every student individually but they also have a great quality of education. The socialization is also very good and enough to have good time. instead, of stopping the field trips because of corona, they started virtual trips as well. Importantly, parents are involved in every step of their child' career path decisions to help. The home room teacher even keeps a good eye on each student to help them reach their academic goals. Every thing is just comfortable, user-friendly and fantastic which you would never regret in your life!
Texas Connections Academy at Houston has been an amazing school for me! They helped me to focus more on my schoolwork and achieve my full potential, quite the opposite of the brick and mortar school I went. This school allowed me to graduate within a three year time frame and become Salutation. I would not have been able to have achieved these amazing things without this great school and the amazing support team!
