I visited NOC’s two Learning Centers in downtown Beaufort — Parkview and Marsh Pointe. I saw hope and optimism in the faces of the children who were there. After almost a year, these students are showing significant results in academic performance, attendance, behavior, and parent involvement. While I have been optimistic from the outset, these children are achieving excellent results faster than our expectations. Clearly, the NOC model is working and is highly relevant to creating opportunities for children and families who live in neighborhoods with limited resources and services. The hard work of the NOC team, together with the teachers, volunteers, and friends of NOC, is generating positive payoffs.
Please continue to support NOC’s efforts and visit our Learning Centers.
