Accelerated Reader is a program designed to enhance children’s reading experiences and improving reading skills. At the start of the year, students take a STAR test on the computer to determine each student’s reading range. Students then select books in their reading range, read the book, and then take a comprehension test on the computer. Because this is an online program, students can select books from over 140,000 choices! Parents can be an active part of the Accelerated Reader process by subscribing to the program, so your student’s results can be emailed directly to you. Accelerated Reader is an outstanding program for individualized success for our students.
