2018 Spring Testing Results

OUR ANNUAL GOAL is to achieve an increase in reading level of at least half a year, ideally a full year.   It is not uncommon for many of our students to have seen no success with reading for 2-3 years before enrolling, so exactly when we see, and how much, improvement will vary from student to student.We are proud to say that this year’s graduates have all exceeded functional literacy levels, with each showing significant improvement on their initial scores.
