The teachers at Edgewood are excited to have a systematic phonics program that allows them to build students' literacy skills. After reviewing our state standardized assessment results from the previous year, we noticed that we were not scoring very well on the Language - Spelling section. We scored in the 43 percentile. Since we have been implementing Reading Horizons, we have noticed a spike in our scores on the Language - Spelling. We have administered three interim assessments to monitor students' progress. On the first assessment 55% of our students passed and on the second assessment 68% of our students passed. So we are looking forward to seeing an improvement on our State Standardized Results in Language - Spelling this year due to the implementation of Reading Horizons. So stay tuned!
