Pecos Connections Academy (PCA), a full-time online public charter school that serves students statewide in grades K-9, received high marks from enrolled families for the school’s inaugural year, according to a recently released third-party survey.
PCA’s 2016-2017 Parent Satisfaction Survey, a survey that gathers feedback from parents about the school and the virtual school experience, revealed that 92 percent of parents gave Pecos Connections Academy’s online school program an “A” or “B” grade, and 91 percent would recommend the school to other parents.
According to the 48th Annual Phi Delta Kappa/Gallup Poll of the Public’s Attitudes Toward the Public Schools, PCA’s scores far exceed public school ratings in which just 67% of public school parents gave the school their oldest child attended an “A” or “B” grade.
Parents praised PCA for its use of technology, the quality of its teachers, and the variety of learning activities that enhanced a student’s learning experience. More than 90 percent of parents reported that their children are making good academic progress, while 96 percent said they were pleased with the helpfulness of the school’s teachers, specifically praising their responsiveness and accessibility.
“As educators, our goal is to provide our students and their parents with a challenging curriculum that fits their learning style so they can thrive in school and beyond,” said Pecos Connections Academy Principal Jed Duggan. “I couldn’t be more proud of our teachers and staff for creating such a positive learning experience for all of our students in our first year.”
“The teacher is always here for us and they adapt the education to the needs of the children. I have more support and education for my children than ever before,” said parent Rachel Nead.
Parents also overwhelmingly praised PCA’s curriculum, with 98 percent of survey respondents calling it “high quality.”
