Students and parents say time well spent

Session 1 surveys show sky-high satisfaction

Survey results from NSSI’s first session of 2022 are in, and stakeholders are overwhelmingly satisfied! Respondents from DeKalb County, Georgia; Ector County, Texas; and locations nationwide raved about the program’s effectiveness in building confidence, academic skills, and excitement!

“It was not like a normal summer school at all.”

Harvard and University of Virginia scholars found that students in NSSI last summer improved their academic skills and gained confidence.

I honestly felt like all of my kids, they improved. Pretty much across the board they all said, I read differently now. And I pay attention to what I read. And I'm going to be thinking about what I read and what it means for my life.
