I am proud and grateful to be a part of such a wonderful program. It is the teamwork that we embody in this district...to our work with amazing partners, like NESS, that expands our programming and provides our students high quality, enriching learning experiences that change their lives in countless ways.
I can’t thank NESS enough for all the opportunities that you all have allowed our students to experience. To the NESS staff, you all are so welcoming and supportive and easy going. One student said that he never imagined that he would be able to be on the water like he was and do what he did. Awesome!
We have so enjoyed our first year working with you. The curriculum was engaging and the staff was incredible. We are looking forward to working with you more in the upcoming years and are so lucky to have you and your organization working along side us to better our community and our kids.
NESS has done an amazing job of both engaging diverse communities and providing positive learning opportunities on the water. They offer a true role model.
Learning is in the fabric of the programs and before the kids realize it, they've learned and retained a lot AND had a great interactive experience.
NESS's ability to offer a state of the art facility together with expertise in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math provide unique opportunities for students to practice and apply real life applications of concepts learned in their everyday classroom experiences.
There are so many aspects to sailing that once mastered, bolsters the self-esteem. As an individual activity, it teaches dependence on self. When teamed it teaches working with and trust in others.
