Accelerated Reader

AR is a supplemental reading program designed to motivate students to read as well as test their comprehension.

There are three basic steps to this program:
1) Students take a readability test (STAR) to determine their appropriate reading level.
2) Students read books at their level.
3) Students take the computerized quiz, which is accessible from any computer in the building, to assess comprehension.
A performance report is immediately printed.
Understanding AR Symbols-Do your children come home speaking about being flowers and squares?  Or maybe it’s fish and circles?  If you don’t have a clue as to what they are talking about, we are here to let you know that they are referring to their AR reading level.  For your convenience, we have created a list of the symbols so you can converse with your children about their accomplishments!
