What educators are saying

"For us, the biggest piece was a cultural change. That would not have been able to happen as quickly and to the same level as if we didn't have those professional developments and collaboration time and intervention."
April Ragland, Assistant Principal
Peters Township High School, PA
"NMSI is very hands-on. They walk through the process with you. They are very flexible and make adjustments as needed."
Paul Jackson, Assistant Principal
Scotlandville Magnet High School, LA

"What I've seen is that the culture and the belief system have shifted to a college-for-all mentality. A lot of it is the strategic structure in the partnership with NMSI."
Ricardo Lopez, Superintendent
Garland ISD, TX
"The challenges I'm better able to tackle because of NMSI are things like recruiting for advanced placement programs, recruiting teachers, recruiting students. Going in and telling a student, 'We've got support for you. You'll be okay. Let's try this.'"
Sue Arredondo, Academic Dean
Wagner High School, TX
