About Us

Thomas Reycraft

Dear Educator,

Why do Benchmark Education's PreK-12 programs stand apart?

Our award-winning print and digital solutions feature content-rich leveled texts in English and Spanish; explicit instruction in close reading and analysis, genre, and cross-text study; and a wide array of differentiated resources that enable educators to target literacy intervention. Our powerful supplemental and core programs give diverse learners precisely the support they need to accelerate achievement.

Professional Development, a top priority for Benchmark Education since its founding close to twenty years ago, can be customized for schools or districts, and has been demonstrated by scientific research studies to improve teacher effectiveness and help schools build essential capacity.

Many educational publishing companies say their literacy programs are the best, but our classroom-tested resources speak for themselves. Proven time and again in field research, our programs help boost reading proficiency under the new state standards. Since our inception in 1998, our mission has remained to provide classroom-tested solutions that help educators differentiate instruction and enable EVERY student to achieve success.

Sincerely,

Thomas Reycraft

Tom Reycraft
