Read what schools are saying about our solutions

Renaissance solutions have impacted our reading culture. We have a word millionaire board celebrating those who have achieved certificates, and students are continually aware of their reading age and ZPD. Hence, they can select appropriate books. The overall impact has been very positive.

Star Reading is invaluable in ensuring students read appropriately without becoming overwhelmed by texts that are too dense or underachieving by reading texts with too low a vocabulary load.

I really appreciate the way Accelerated Reader enables me to be fully involved with the students’ reading – I know exactly what they are reading, how much progress they are making and how I can support them most effectively.
