The National Math + Science Initiative

The National Math + Science Initiative (NMSI) College Readiness Program, which has been implemented in over 1,000 schools since 2008, dramatically increases the number of students taking and passing rigorous math, science and English exams, and expands access to traditionally underrepresented students.

NMSI’s Laying the Foundation teacher training program helps teachers in grades 3-8 work through model lessons and discuss strategies for engaging students with interesting content while building conceptual understanding.
