    "The schedule is very open considering its online. I start school at 9am and typically end by 12 or 1."

    "Attending Nevada Connections Academy for highschool allowed me to continue working long hours even while I attended high school, helped me learn valuable skills like time management and self-motivation for college, and allowed me more leisure time as I was able to do my studies straight from home or the library. This kind of learning style really suited me and I graduated with a 3.6 GPA. I have no regrets attending this school. I'd always planned to go to college anyways and I found that Nevada Connections Academy really prepared me for my ongoing studies."

    "Nevada Connections Academy prepared me for college exponentially in comparison to the public high school system of which I was a part. By having the curriculum molded around my own speed and style of learning, I became more accountable for my schedule, more incentivized to complete my assignments thoroughly, and more responsible for my overall scores. I find that by completing Nevada Connections Academy, my focus and time managing skills within my college career are now second nature. What I would like to see in addition to the supportive faculty is a wider range of resources utilized within the curriculum that encourage less textbook learning and more diverse ways of imparting lessons to students. There are so many opportunities as an online school to use online resources. It would be a shame if none of those resources were ever taken advantage of."

    "What I like about this school is the carreer readiness classes. These class compare well to magnet schools, but even better with more options into what subjects you would like to enter. You also have the advantage of changing what subject you are in, unlike other magnet school and technical academies. What I dislike is the lack of community between students. Students don't interact with one another in each grade like how public schools are."

    "I've already discussed this in other questions, but I'll expand more. Core courses are average. Not bad, not great. Foreign Languages courses are not effective because they don't make you speak that often, so you don't really get comfortable speaking aloud. I took 3 years of french, but can barely speak it. Technology courses are a waste; just watch youtube tutorials. Electives are hit and miss, but usually miss. Sometimes information in lessons and/or textbooks is outdated. Oh that's another thing: they frequently don't give you the actual textbook, so if you want to study, you have to do it in front of the computer and use the online textbook. So no spur-of-the-moment studying after dinner after you've already shut the computer down. Sometimes the links don't work in lessons because they go to websites that have changed or moved. The workload is crazy; I'm frequently behind and have to work weekends and during vacation."
