    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.
