What Administrators in Research Studies Had to Say:


"Your program is wonderful. Absolutely helpful and effective at all grade levels. The training was excellent! All basals will be taken out of school today."
"After a year of using the materials, and participating in perhaps the best ongoing professional development I have ever seen, our third grade students posted the highest scores on the mastery test since its inception in 2006."
"The Benchmark Education program made a very positive impact on the development of our teachers in differentiating instruction. We saw improvement in our students' literacy and language acquisition as measured on independent and state assessments. There were noticeable gains in the percentage of students who scored "At/Above Proficient" on the state reading test for students in the program this past year."
