Review for Communities in Schools of Nassau County Inc, Fernandina Beach, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

CIS Nassau is one of the reasons the School District of Nassau County continues to be an "A" school district.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

One thing I'd also say is that...

I started typing my answer to the 10 million dollar question and the form cut me off. As a result, I was unable to explain my response. I went back and wrote a list. I could spend the money!
