Professional Educators:

“There is no way that I could have met the academic and emotional needs of the 10-12 students that have benefitted. The small group pull outs were very helpful for academic support. It would be hard to survive without the excellent CIS support for my students.” –Faculty Member, Freiheit Elementary

“CIS provides an extra environment where at-risk students can enjoy relationships with mentors that isn’t attached to grades or learning. If it isn’t for CIS, an at-risk student’s only relationship with school might be solely based on performance and not on their value as an individual. Emotional health precedes academic performance and CIS provides that for those who are missing it at home.” – Faculty Member, Carl Schurz Elementary

“I personally could not imagine our campus without CIS…Many of our students are only successful because of CIS…I feel that if we did not have CIS we would have a higher dropout rate as a school district.” – Faculty Member, Oak Run Middle School

“CIS provides access to support and resources that are often not available to students elsewhere, including financial, academic, and emotional support. These students would have little to no support structure without the services CIS provides.” –Faculty Member, New Braunfels High School
