Estill Elementary was identified by the State of South Carolina as an underperforming school. However, Estill’s principal and teachers have decided that, in the face of the many challenges stacked against their students, they will succeed—no excuses. In their search for the best resources to help their students they found a reading curriculum by Logic of English® that will help them lay a strong foundation, not only for reading, but for all of education.
In the first four months, teachers have reported an increase in student confidence and engagement, and decreases in problematic and distracting behavior. Students who previously did not enjoy reading are independently picking up books!
Success for Every Student
Our goal is to make success in reading available to every student.
Through this research-based program, students systematically develop essential decoding skills and fluency leading to strong comprehension and critical thinking ability as they analyze words, think about meaning, and make connections to other words and concepts. No more guessing. No more rote memorization of words.
Students learn to read, and it changes their lives.
