FROM OUR STUDENTS
"I am having so much fun in the Girl's Circle after-school program and for the first time I feel accepted, appreciated, and comfortable sharing and socializing with others at school. Thank you!"
"I never really felt smart and I used to get a lot of E's on my report card. School was very hard for me until I met [my CIS Graduation Coach]. She explained that I just learn differently and now that I am working with her, I am more confident in my work and I'm getting all A's."
FROM OUR SCHOOLS
CIS has partnered with Onsted Community Schools for several years fostering positive connections between adults and students, offering social support and a lot of individual attention for our students. We used to use our at-risk dollars to fund an alternative school but now we use CIS as a front-end approach to helping students with social and academic issues succeed.
