In good company
68% of families said they were “very likely” or “extremely likely” to recommend other students attend a summer school that uses NSSI’s programming. Converting these results to the classic measure of customer ardor, the Net Promoter Score (NPS), yields a NPS of 51.
The Net Promoter Score is a standard measure of customer loyalty that examines the distribution of ardent “promoters” and “detractors” of the organization. Scores range from -100 to +100; a score above 40 is considered excellent.
87% of families in summer 2022 said they were satisfied or extremely satisfied with their child's experience in a summer program that is supported by NSSI—with 63% selecting the highest possible response.
My daughter actually looks forward to school now and loves her teachers.

My favorite thing about NSSI is that everything was so clear and understandable. It helped me participate.

It makes me happy that my kids come home talking about their days and how much fun they had. I like how they every day they can't wait to be back at school!
I like how interactive the math program is and how much more one-on-one attention and feedback I receive.

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.'

I love how the NSSI curriculum puts students in the driver’s seat of their learning. There is little room for disengagement and the rigor is high. From my perspective, the most beneficial part of this program is the 2x per week PD. My teachers have built great relationships with their mentor teachers and I have seen positive changes in the way they teach from the intensive coaching and training.
The NSSI curriculum was extremely engaging, thorough and detailed with support and ready-to-use materials. It provided a clear outline, worksheets, resources, modeling and support for the entire lesson. The support was superb and I have never felt so MOTIVATED and helped! The videos are an excellent tool, and I loved watching them! I loved this program!

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.
