From our partners

Listen to what our partner schools, parents, teachers, and students had to say about their experience working with the National Summer School Initiative.

In good company

NSSI earns “excellent” Net Promoter Score from very enthusiastic parents.

The Net Promoter Score is a standard measure of customer loyalty that examines the distribution of ardent “promoters” and “detractors” of the organization. Scores range from -100 to +100; a score above 50 is considered excellent.


Enthusiastic Parents

My child has been using words that are more descriptive and has a better understanding of grammar and composition. She is also understanding division more clearly. 

I enjoyed picking the children up and them telling me what they learned. My children would come home with new dance moves, artwork and homework!

What I like best about the program is that the math teacher motivates my daughter to enjoy learning more about math. My daughter was having trouble with that subject and now she understands it so well.

I like that my daughter is actively engaged and receiving more individual attention than the normal school year. She’s also able to focus on the subjects that will help her later.

Client schools and organizations tell us

Exposing students and teachers to working within this sort of well-designed, effectively delivered blended learning model, focused around an individualized learning plan for each student based upon their own progress, has been one of our major motivations at Nevada Action for School Options in serving as Nevada’s partner for this work.

And it is something valuable that we hope many families participating in remote learning this upcoming school year will benefit from.

Teachers tell us

I love the rigor! I didn't think my kids could handle it but they stepped up. They weren't challenged by our distance learning after the quarantine. One child in particular, who had done poorly during the school year, was surprising. He was always a goof-off. Without the other kids to impress, he became a star student by doing all the work and consistently participating.

My students want to edit their work. After they write they will say, ‘Look at my work! What should I do to fix it?’. I always dreamt students would be open to editing and now they seek it. And I’m so impressed by the discourse. My students are mostly Spanish-speaking and are now able to state their ideas during discourse before writing.

“My students loved the science. When I would say science is on Monday, they would cheer every time. Each video lesson contained a complete experiment, with time to discuss and write. One lesson experimented with planting food waste. One boy, curiously, planted his food waste. It sprouted a bean plant! Every day he brought it to class to show off its growth. His excitement has been contagious!"
