Help to connect students to their interests and passions. Next intends to connect and partner with multiple individuals and organizations to assist in realizing our mission and vision for students. A formal group – “Friends of Next” – work to support varied operations within the school. To borrow an old adage, “it takes a village.” The local community of Derry and surrounding communities around New England are teeming with talented, knowledgeable, and skillful people who wish to improve learning opportunities for youth directly and indirectly.
The “Friends of Next” will gather as a singular group periodically throughout the year to celebrate the good work implemented, to plan future work, and to share successes and best practices – all as they relate to the mission of Next.
