About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See The Connect Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

The Connect Charter School Reviews
Connect is a great place for middle school kids. I worked there temporarily and never once felt like a stranger. Their staff is so friendly, competent and 100% dedicated to the kids and they provide wonderful enrichment programs. We had our son put our three year old grandson on their waiting list!
Connect Charter School is a wonderful school. The staff takes their time and gets to know the students. My son is in 7th grade and loves the challenge. They are teaching him organizational skill and the importance of being responsible for himself. Part of being a student at Connect is learning how to work in a group, being a leader or a team member everyone still contributes. I am constantly surprised by the quality and professionalism of the school and staff.
Connect is a very challenging school for kids. I have found that all of the teachers care about my child and are willing to put in the time to help him if he asks for help. The school is wonderful. Yes, they stress academics. Yes, they are strict. That is part of forging a responsible student who takes his responibilities seriously.
If you want your child to go here get em on the waiting list!
I think this school is horrible! My child is an 8th grader there, and they hate it! They are too strict. Some call it challenging, but there's a difference between strict and challenging. My child had some trouble with a teacher and they didn't do a thing about it. She also said that alot of the students are rude and stuck up. They may have good test scores, but nothing else about this school impresses me. I would not tell anyone to send their child there!
