Open Quote My child has gone to MTC Connections Academy for 5 years.She is able to work at her own pace, is advanced in math and enjoys the options available for clubs and electives. We like the freedom the school allows for us to do school during any time of the day. We also like being able to adjust the class schedule to fit our days. The teachers are supportive and helpful. The cirriculum is challenging and fun. The electives and clubs are amazing. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
