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. :)

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.

Inspiring at risk students to value both themselves, and their education is only one of the many ways middle school students grow and develop into responsible contributing members of their community. The community becomes stronger, the crime rate drops, and above all, the students gain self respect and positive self image through the programs offered by Communities in Schools Nassau County.
The contributions made by companies, and individual donors are maximized by the 100s of Volunteer hours spent working with these students, and in turn, the communities of Nassau County benefit!

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 is a must in our community. There are children & teens who need help with school, maybe a little extra attention, and maybe a listening ear to go along with that. CIS staff members do their best to be whatever it is that each individual child needs to be successful in school and in life. They are a wonderful nonprofit agency & I am thankful they exist in our community!
