Rating: 4 stars  

The Communities In Schools room has helped me in doing the interview challenge, which has helped e to know what an interview is like. The people in the CIS room are helpful and supportive of the student.

Communities in Schools takes its mission of surrounding our students with a community of support to empower them to succeed in school and achieve in life very seriously.

As an advisor working directly with CIS students, I see this need on a daily basis. We know that many times students are struggling academically because they are being affected by a host of other factors.

Communities in Schools works diligently to try to address these issues as well as the students' academic needs, and it is very rewarding when our efforts result in happier, higher-achieving students.

Each year, I get an opportunity to review the record of CIS Nassau with the ED. They reach kids who lack almost any effective support at home, and provide feedback and encouragement to stay in school and learn. They don't always succeed, but most of the kids they serve stay in school and improve their grades. They need more resources to reach more kids.
