Helping You Create Lasting Change

We know systemic change takes more than classroom resources and trainings. That's why we take a holistic approach - partnering with leaders, staff, students and communities - to create  long-term impact. Through NMSI 365, thought-partnership is available all year and our support can be customized for any school system.

Here's how our programs empower you to lead lasting change:

CS AlignEd

An element of NMSI 365, CS AlignEd brings together local teams of administrators, school counselors and teachers to develop comprehensive K-12 computer science education. Learning can be delivered through integrated courses, stand-alone classes or a combination. The program builds understanding for the value of computer science learning and collaboration across school systems.

College Readiness Program

A hallmark of NMSI’s College Readiness Program is year-round collaboration with district and campus administrators. We work alongside leaders to develop equitable mindsets, ensure local practices support all students and teachers and build sustainable advanced programs. This includes annual AP Leadership Institutes that focus on growing successful AP programs.

Our trainings and materials create alignment across grade levels to ensure students experience a seamless transition to advanced courses.

NMSI works with university leaders who want to increase the number of highly qualified STEM teachers they produce. We do this in collaboration with the UTeach Institute at the University of Texas at Austin, providing support and guidance for schools of math, science and education to develop their own UTeach program.

"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

"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
"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
"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.'"
