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.

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 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!

my daughter has participated in the communities after school program for the last three years. It has helped bring her out with her personality and overcome her shyness. It has also helped her with her grades and able to focus on doing her homework.

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.
