Accelerated Reader

At Mark Twain Elementary, our students participate in the Accelerated Reader Program through Renaissance Place. Accelerated Reader is a program that allows students to read and test on books that are appropriate for their current reading level. Our library's books are color-coded to correspond the the student's STAR test grade equivalent scores.
