So far CIS has been great! My son is thoroughly loving it. I see it already making a difference in his grades. This is the first year for him, he's a 6th grader at Hilliard Middle Senior High School. Dr. D and her team are AWESOME! If you have a struggling child(ren) I highly recommend this program. :)

Ms. Guest was a God Sent to my son in the first two years of middle school. The program help to keep him focused and to get his homework done, and to get help with some of his math work as well. The program is a must have for every student. The last year, he was able to help some other students in the program.

CIS has been a great help to my son for the past two years. He made the A-B honor roll for the first time last year and I did not have to help him with any of his homework! I would highly recommend the program to any parent with a child that is struggling in school.

CIS has been a big help especially in the tutoring program for my daughter. She is doing a lot better with the support of CIS.

CIS is a must in our community. There are children & teens who need help with school, maybe a little extra attention, and maybe a listening ear to go along with that. CIS staff members do their best to be whatever it is that each individual child needs to be successful in school and in life. They are a wonderful nonprofit agency & I am thankful they exist in our community!

Mrs Dinwiddie and her coaching staff is doing a great job of helping our students to become better citizens for the community. I applaud their efforts to keep our children interested in learning.

CIS was a huge help to our son last year at Yulee Middle School. He was able to get the help he needed and we saw his grades go up immediately. We are so thankful that this service is available in our community. If you have the opportunity to get your child into this program, do not hesitate to say yes. Thank you for all you do for my son, and of course, for all students!

I love being a volunteer at the Callahan Schools. I may be a volunteer but I learn more from the students. Being a volunteer is a great thing to do, you not only help students but the teachers too. I believe we have the Best schools here in Nassau County in Florida.
