I had a great time at YCCS. Although brief, it was a great experience that I will remember forever. I came in the middle of a semester in the last couple months of classes. I never felt like an outcast and was embraced with open arms by the staff. They made my school transition smooth and lovely :)

My experience at an youth connection charter school has been amazing. I've got the opportunity to earn credits that I missed. I feel as if I was giving the chance to redo what I didn't accomplish. What I liked about the school was that if offered more skills & a quicker way to learn. It gave you an option between being on a computer or in a class room. Youth Connection Charter Schools (YCLA) brought children together. I liked how the teacher's were eager to teach & even learn from students. The teachers at YCLA made learning fun. The only thing I want to change about the school is the food & the no bringing outside food in the lunch room policy. Also, we need more sports & activities. Other than that Im enjoying my experience there.
I like that you are given a chance to correct your mistakes. They offer you another chance to complete school on time and have flexible schedules for if you are working.
