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. :)

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.

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.

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.

I have helped out at events and student/family meals and see how much CIS does for our kids and their families. Some don't have the help they need and CIS is there to provide or find the extra services that help them to do better in school and also in their life.

Communities in Schools of Nassau County is an amazing non-profit! They care so passionately and strongly for their students and help them to achieve in every way. I love how they are constantly looking for new ways to help their students and also how to get the community involved. The relationships built with the students are lasting and previous students always come back to share how they are doing and their successes. AMAZING PROGRAM!
