What Administrators in Research Studies Had to Say:


"Benchmark Literacy exceeded my expectations. The state reading scores came up significantly in every grade level. The social studies state scores were higher than they have ever been—we believe very much that Benchmark Literacy contributed to that. Overall we are thrilled! The teachers embraced it. It really was a wonderful support for our kids. Thank you Benchmark Education."
"[On the state assessment,] we went from 20% Non-Proficient in Reading down to 15%. Advanced Reading also improved, going from 25% up to a whopping 38%! This is absolute proof of the effectiveness of Benchmark Literacy."
