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. :)

Community in Schools of Nassau County, FL is a prime example of an organization that works to help students succeed in school and achieve in life. They work very closely with the schools to provide additional support through several avenues (i.e. tutoring and homework help, individual coaching and mentoring, and behavior management).

They are really making a difference in the lives of children here in Nassau County!

My daughter was an AB Honor Roll student in elementary school but her first year in middle school threw her a big curve ball with the amount of work required and the complexity of the work. Her grades slipped dramatically and whenever I tried to help her understand her homework it often times ended in frustration and tears. One of her teachers suggested the Homework Club run by the Communities in Schools program and what a huge help they were to my daughter! Her grades improved and so did her understanding of the work and what was expected of her! We are forever grateful to this fantastic program!

CIS is wonderful. Their after school program is just what we need to ensure our daughter completes homework every afternoon and continues to succeed in school. The volunteers are wonderful. The program is exemplary.

Inspiring at risk students to value both themselves, and their education is only one of the many ways middle school students grow and develop into responsible contributing members of their community. The community becomes stronger, the crime rate drops, and above all, the students gain self respect and positive self image through the programs offered by Communities in Schools Nassau County.
The contributions made by companies, and individual donors are maximized by the 100s of Volunteer hours spent working with these students, and in turn, the communities of Nassau County benefit!

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.
