Fairview Elementary used Sound Reading with 5 of their 6 kindergarten classes. As a result, their students improved their reading ability dramatically. At the start of the year less than 5% of students were reading at grade level. By the end of the program over 90% of students were reading at grade level.

“The staff and tutors all noted significant growth with each student in terms of attitude toward the reading process and willingness to engage.”
