Our test scores have been phenomenal for the last ten years. We are the highest in the tri-county area – hundreds of schools – because of your program.

OpenBook has a variety of lesson presentations, such as graphs and charts. OpenBook also has a helpful feature that provides instruction in oral pronunciation. OpenBook is very useful with secondary-level students.

Students are more willing to complete the work using the computerized presentation format that allows teachers to individualize content and activities based on initial assessment built into the program. Both teachers and students can track progress through the use of on-going assessments and the reporting features.
