Students share their Connelly experience...

"Connelly is more than a single-gender education. It is an experience filled with lifelong friends, inspirational teachers, and opportunities that cannot be found anywhere else. Together, these moments have shaped me into the leader I am today. I love that the Connelly experience allows every student to be multidimensional. My fellow Connelly girls and I take advantage of every opportunity to be some combination of club leader, athlete, stellar student, service activist, etc., an opportunity that is inaccessible in many larger schools."  Imani '12

"Connelly is a nurturing and fun environment. There are a variety of classes including all of the AP and Honors courses I need. The curriculum is tough, but well-designed.
