“What an honor it is to have our science-based reading program recognized by the education community as a successful solution for students,” said Stacy Hurst, Chief Academic Officer of Reading Horizons. “We truly believe every child deserves an equal opportunity at success in life. That begins with attaining reading proficiency by the end of third grade!”
While 95 percent of third graders nationwide are cognitively capable of reading proficiently, data shows that 64 percent are not reading proficiently by the end of third grade. Three out of four of these learners will never catch up. Reading Horizons has made it their mission to fill the need for quality, science-based programs to help students achieve reading proficiency in the K–3 years.
