CONNECTIONS

In partnership with the community, we ensure that each student will have the essential knowledge, skills and attitudes to be a lifelong learner, a contributing citizen and a productive worker in a changing and increasingly diverse world.

What is Connections?

Connections is an alternative education program with small class sizes, credit recovery opportunities, career/tech opportunities, and online options for 10th-12th grade students.  Connections offers students a strong support system including highly qualified teachers, and compassionate and supportive staff.  Connections has a low student to staff ratio, and extra supports for reading, math, ELL and SPED students.  Students may attend connections beginning sophomore year, and can graduate from the program.
