"Connelly allowed me four more years of childhood in high school."

"Connelly is indeed a very caring, creative, and uplifting place. Excellence is expected from each student, and appropriately the students expect excellence from each instructor - our music courses, for example, provide excellent performance opportunities but also sound academic background and theoretical exploration. The students were responsible for this growth, they took responsibility for their own education - it's a pleasure to be a part of it."
Brian Dehn, Music Instructor
