Why NMIS?

TOP REASONS TO ENROLL YOUR CHILD AT NMIS

U.S. students need to know more about the world. A recent study showed that:

  • Half of 18- to 24-year-olds could not find New York state on the map of the United States;
  • Fewer than three in ten felt that it was absolutely necessary to know where countries in the news were located;
  • Only 14 percent believed speaking another language fluently was a necessary skill;
  • Fewer than one in five young Americans owned a world map;
  • Three in ten respondents placed the United States population between one and two billion; and
  • Seventy-four percent said English was the most commonly spoken native language in the world.

Our son looks forward to going to school each day. He comes home happy, always talking about the fun things they are doing in school. It is so nice to know he is learning and having fun at the same time. - Dean and Joy W., NMIS Parents
