Elementary education results with phonicsThe graph to the left displays results for an at-risk elementary after-school program that utilized the Smart Way Reading program. As can be seen, of the 79 elementary school students (grades K-5) who were pre- and post-tested, 88.6% achieved academic gain, with the average increase taking students from the 37th percentile to the 55th (i.e., from well below age/grade level to just above age level) in 32 hours of tutoring.

High school education results with phonics
The graph to the right shows the results for an inner-city high school after-school tutoring program using Smart Way Reading. Of the 71 high school students (grades 9-12) who were pre- and post-tested, an incredible 97.1% achieved academic gain, with the average increase taking students from the 18th percentile to the 47th (i.e., from substantially below their age/grade level to just under their age level) in approximately 35 hours.

Of the several thousand students enrolled in programs working with the Smart Way Reading curriculum, 88% have moved, on average, from the 25th to the 50th percentile, or, well below age/grade level to right at their age level in generally about 35 hours.

While there is no guarantee, express or implied, that the same results will occur with any individual student or group of students, the results of programs working with Smart Way Reading show consistently positive results.
