In summer 2022, NSSI partnered with 42 schools and districts, including New York City; Ector County, Texas; and Fulton County, Georgia. 27,000 students got a head start on the 2022-23 school year, and 2,700 teachers and school leaders geared up as never before!
Students learned—a lot.
In just five weeks, students made major gains in proficiency across grades and subjects. On average, math students with NSSI improved more than 15 percentage points (from pre-test to post-test), and literature students improved 10 percentage points.
Transformative teacher training
Feedback from partner teachers on NSSI’s first round of summer 2022 training is glowing! Of the 1,300 teachers who participated nationwide, 92% or more agreed that:
NSSI’s presenters were engaging and knowledgeable
The session objectives were clear
They met the session objectives
NSSI is proudly upending expectations for what’s possible in the realm of professional development. Our partner teachers are fired-up and ready to accelerate their students’ learning and make-up critical lost ground this summer.

Hear from a returning partner
One of the key factors in deciding to partner another year with NSSI was the demonstrable impact of the program, with students making gains of 15–40% in priority grade level standards assessed through pre- and post-assessments. Moreover, students, families, and teachers continue to share with us their enthusiasm for the lessons, materials, and for the emphasis on social-emotional learning. We partner with NSSI because they are 'student first.'
