    "My greatest concern is getting my son in on the best education. Capistrano Connection Academy offers this. When it was time to select a particular teacher for a nomination; they are all wonderful. I was unable to choose just one. Each and every teacher responds immediately, even if it is a Sunday. They treat my son with respect and a heartfelt interest in his personal achievement. They are always there for each and every student, with: math labs, one on one tutoring, assignments that develop the students skill. If the is unable to do an assignment they are there to walk him through. What I love the most is Capistrano keeps me informed of all the academic details of my son's school activity. I really feel included. The curriculum is brilliant. Each lesson plan is clear and easy to follow. After each assignment, you can check on the teachers thoughts, input or direction by clicking. I have easy access to assess any area or material enabling me to help my son.... and coach him. When I get too busy: they tutor, the one on one contact is awesome. Field trips are organized so that the kids can socialize. The live lessons make my son laugh having fun."

    "This is our 2nd year with Capo and my kids LOVE it! The teachers are so supportive and really take the time to make sure that each student understands what they are learning. My daughter struggled with reading before coming to this school, and they immediately put her in supplementary reading courses and now she can read and loves to read! Every day is a new adventure and we have found that the kids WANT to do their school work because the lessons interest them, the work excites them, and they are retaining the information! I would recommend CAPO to anyone!"

    "My son has been in Connection Academy Capistrano for 3 years now. It has been very successful for him -- measured by his results on the standardized state tests, where his scores have improved by almost 50%. However, this is not a program for everyone. You need to have strong parental supervision and involvement in ensuring that assignments are completed on time, and that the student is learning. There is lots of feedback from daily quizes and tests to do this. But you have to stay on top of it - every day. You have to be moderately computer skilled. This includes scanning in handwritten or other work, using word processors, using web conferences for live courses delivered on line with the teacher, etc. If you don't know the difference between a word processor and a spreadsheet, you will have problems. The school provides some help, and you (parents and kids) learn fast -- but it can take a bit of time to figure it out. And yes, its obvious some of the new teachers are learning this too. Compared to the school our son was in before, this is a much higher quality learning experience for him. But its not "turn on the computer and walk away" as some think."

    "Overall did not like this program. It was our first experience with virtual schooling and it was a nightmare for us. The language arts is all combined into one class and most of my kids were not able to finish the work daily. As others have mentioned, grading was done daily and very stressful for the kids. Sometimes there would be errors in submitting the online assessments and so the kids would get bad grades, in part, due to that. I feel like the kids were just going through the motions and not really learning. I did like the Glencoe books that were used, but I just don't feel there was enough time allotted to each lesson/topic to make sure they mastered the content. The kids felt overwhelmed. Most of the classes had what was called "discussions," which I thought were lame and of little or no value as far as I could see. Students had to respond to a prompt given by the teacher and respond to the response of what two other students had said, but it really wasn't a meaningful exercise in my opinion. What they called labs for my 8th grade for science were ridiculous in my opinion. There is not a lot of flexibility in the scheduling either as there is with our current program."
