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!

I have personally heard through several different School Board Superintendents the amazing difference that CIS makes with their children. CIS is a great program for all schools!

This program is so helpful to individual students! The one-on-one relationships that are built do so much to increase the potential of so many students who do get this type of adult support elsewhere. I have seen grades increase and overall involvement in school and school related activities soar with many students who participate in CIS.

I am a retired teacher and have been a paid homework tutor with CIS for the past two years. The sixth grade students I have helped not only completed their daily homework, but have utilized the time to read Accelerated Reading books, start reports early, practice multiplication tables and prepare for statewide testing through booklets and computer work.

Dr. Dinwiddie and Mrs. Loyd work tirelessly, enthusiastically, and lovingly to help students in their program, and of course these students benefit enormously from their care and concern. One example of this is the tutoring program, which is held in my facility. The number of tutored students grows constantly, and with the help of the CIS program and tutors, students can be seen working hard to improve themselves both academically and in other ways.

CIS Nassau is one of the reasons the School District of Nassau County continues to be an "A" school district. By meeting the supplementary needs of our students, especially our lowest quartile, CIS improves the overall success of our schools. From basic math and grammer instruction, to teaching job interview skills, CIS does more than fill an academic void; they touch students' lives.

Best use of funds toward programs. Their administrative costs are the lowest of any educational nonprofit I know of. But, most importantly, CIS provided much needed services to children who otherwise would go without.
