About Us


Today, more than ever, a quality education is the foundation of opportunity.
By 2020, almost two-thirds of all jobs will require post-secondary education or training. Nearly as many will require basic literacy in science, technology, engineering and math.

Yet millions of students lack access to the rigorous math and science classes that will equip them with the problem solving, critical thinking and collaboration skills they need to thrive, regardless of what career path they choose. Still more are limited by a lack of access to teachers who have deep levels of content expertise and schools with the resources essential for success.

NMSI works to expand access to challenging coursework and improve student achievement through proven programs that consistently produce measurable and lasting results. We partner with schools and districts nationwide to provide extraordinary training and support for teachers and to give students the resources they need to develop and demonstrate knowledge and skills that will propel them throughout their lives.
