Boost Reading Proficiency in Your Mississippi School District

As an education leader in Mississippi, you know how vital it is to help students achieve reading proficiency by fourth grade. All students, including English language learners, students with dyslexia, and exceptional students, need explicit phonics instruction that supplements and aligns to your core program.

At Reading Horizons, we’ve followed the science of reading for nearly 40 years to provide a program that is simple for teachers to implement and helps students build the foundational reading skills they need to reach their full potential.

Here’s how to get started:

  1. Schedule a Call with your Mississippi Reading Horizons representative.
  2. Get a personalized plan for your schools.
  3. Celebrate reading breakthroughs!

Case Study

Tyler Independent School District Research Study

This rigorous study compared impacts between students whose teachers implemented Reading Horizons Discovery® and those whose teachers did not implement the program during the 2021–2022 school year. Both implementation integrity and student outcomes were measured by the Reading Horizons Implementation Integrity Rubric and the DIBELS 8 assessment, respectively. Students receiving Reading Horizons Discovery® instruction demonstrated a positive effect size of .31, a substantively important positive effect, according to What Works Clearinghouse Evidence Standards.

With exposure to the Reading Horizons method, average student growth was more than double that of students without exposure.

I have a wide range of readers, from students still unsure about letters and sounds to students who don’t understand multi-syllable word decoding. Elevate targets their specific needs. It is really rewarding to see them grow in confidence in their ability to read.
