In our 36 years serving the students of Chicago, we’ve supported over 50,000 students with our reading programs.

Just last year alone, we served 4,925 students across 44 schools in 2 states. 81% of students in Reading In Motion classrooms end the school year reading at grade level or above.

We’re able to accomplish this through our Benchmarks program. Offered in both English and Spanish, Benchmarks is a reading improvement program that incorporates research-backed curriculum, teacher trainings and classroom partnerships, and data analysis to monitor every student’s progress.
