Capistrano Connections Academy Charter School Reviews

By a Parent on

Great school, after bad experiences with so many teachers our son is finally getting back on track.  He is happily learning so many things that he missed as the other school/teachers pushed kids through and collected their checks.  No more burned out teachers.  This is a great school full of enthusiastic teachers who love their students and the challenges they present.  What a relief!

This is our third year with this school. We love it. The curriculum is challenging and fun, with many wonderful electives available for all grade levels including music and foreign languages. Despite it being a virtual academy, teams of teachers are personally involved with my third grader and dedicated to his academic success.  There are educational field trips available every month. The clubs and activities are amazing. This year they include a design magazine, a cookbook, and a music contest, all in addition to the usual clubs, science, art, school paper, school magazine, pen pals, robotics, quiz bowl etc.
