The academic year has come to a close, and Yspaniola is excited to share some of the accomplishments of our Learning Center's students! This year, all students worked hard, and the results showed in their work and their assessments. Class two, which caters to the Learning Center's youngest readers, designed cards for Mothers' Day. On the other end of the age spectrum, class six completed a series of original short stories, one of which was published online (click here

In addition, the results of the Learning Center's most recent round of A-Z testing reflect these efforts. In total, 59 students were assessed using the internationally accredited Reading A-Z system, which evaluates phonetic proficiency, vocabulary, and comprehension. 47 students (80%) showed improvement over the course of the last semester, and of that group, over half gained two or more reading levels.
