Testimonials

What Our Superintendents Have to Say

Wayne Brookhart Superindentent Berwick, PA

“Our partnership with NEF has created enhanced learning opportunities for our students and it has also helped us in our community. It has saved us about $300,000. The price of NEF services is significantly lower than any private vendor we’ve researched and the savings we’ve realized have allowed us to re-invest funds in extended learning opportunities for students in ways we had not previously envisioned. We would highly recommend NEF as a partner for any school district who is looking to enhance its’ on-line learning opportunities for students in a cost efficient manner.”

What Our Directors and Principals Have to Say

Rick Meyer Academy Director Sidney, NE

“Just using our leaderboards – everyday students see me in the building are asking if the leaderboards are updated, when they are going to be updated and then also they want to know when our next events are.”
