NA (site), NA (city),


School Renaissance (using Accelerated Reader with best practices and Star Reading, and using Accelerated Math with best practices and Star Math) is included in Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory's (NWREL) prestigious Catalog of School Reform Models. NWREL describes comprehensive school reform as a means to improve student achievement through reorganizing and revitalizing entire schools, rather than implementing isolated programs. Reform models must be based on research. They must also organize classroom practice, school structure, and school culture around a specific vision of teaching and learning. Comprehensive school reform models must address more than one subject area. School Renaissance was accepted for inclusion June 1, 2003.

NWREL's review of School Renaissance is available online.
