Rating: 5 stars  

This is a great Organization. I didn't know there was help for struggling students in middle/hs. My son has shown great improvements, my daughter will also be helped this year with the little bit of struggles that she has. This is a great program and they have great incentives for the students. Great staff!

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. :)

My child has benefitted so much by being able to go to the Home Work Club. She has now become and Honor Roll student and now has goals to attend college. Communities In Schools help so many students in Nassau County that have no other place to go for counseling, mentoring, food and clothes and Love. I feel if a person can give back to this organization with time or money they will be richly rewarded by seeing smiles on students faces that might not otherwise be there. Thank you CIS for all that you do. Anne Barbanel

My son was helped by Communities in Schools by attending what they call "homework club".
It was helpful to get assistance by people who know how to do the work that is required, especially in math.
It also made time at home more about family and less about the stress of homework.

Communities in School is a great Non-profit organization . They help students who feel hopeless about school work and thinking about dropping out feel more confident about going to school and bringing their GPA up.

My son received before school tutoring from Community in Schools at HMSHS.This is a terrific program.I've seen significant improvements in my son's grades, test scores, behavior and confidence.I love knowing someone else cares and is looking out for him and checking up on him.

To be honest, I really didn't know much about this organization until I was asked to volunteer. Now I know they do anything and everything to help a child achieve. Seeing the HUGE smiles all around when the results in grade improvement are announced is just priceless.

Great organization that has measurable results with the children here in Nassau County. I have met some of the youth who have been in the program and who each shared how they benefited from CIS in their school. Keep up the great work.

Communities in Schools offers a great program to help kids succeed. Knowing someone cares and shares in their successes can make substantial difference in their ability to achieve their dreams making their lives and all around them positive and productive members of their community.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

talking with the kids who are in the program and hearing them talk about what kind of a positive difference it has made for them.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

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!
