Accelerated Reader Program (AR)

Our school uses the Renaissance Accelerated Reader program.  It’s an exciting reading program that determines their reading level with the STAR Test and promotes reading with understanding through the Accelerated Reader Tests (AR).  This is where it gets really exciting, each AR test a student passes earns them AR points.  Students love gaining points!  It’s visual proof for them and their teacher that they are getting smarter and smarter.  Check it out at home and soon you, too, will love taking and passing AR tests!
