"This program is the best around. It not only has excellent people running the program during the summer, but the activities during the year and reunions keep the program alive." -- an NWMI alum

"It is practice and not theory. Our district has started to adopt textbooks and teaching goals that reflect the methods and goals from NWMI. NWMI was not the only influence but it led and modeled the reforms which are student based learning, inquiry, discovery, and problem solving." -- an NWMI alum
