Accelerated Reader Program (AR)

Montgomery’s Accelerated Reading program encourages independent reading in order to create strong readers. Based on each student’s independent reading level, Accelerated Reading (AR) sets individual learning goals. Students are rewarded for accomplishments of their goals. There are a total of 8 different levels and students receive a variety of incentives such as certificates, bookmarks, water bottles etc., every trimester.
