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.
My overall experience with this school was great. It is different from any other schools I have attended. You get a lot of one on one time with teachers and staff, you get to learn and do things at your own pace and you get to interact with different individuals/students.
