Information for Parents
Welcome to WJHS!
My name is Steve Rish and I teach READ 180 class at Wilmette Junior High.
As a testament to the success of READ 180, students in my 7th and 8th grade READ 180 class in 2010-2011 year averaged a 300% increase over their peers in Scantron Performance Series reading scores! As a result, I was one of 50 national winners in Scholastic's 'Read 180 Has Made a Difference' contest.
Results from 2011-2012:
expected average growth: 70 Lexiles
actual average growth: 170 Lexiles
expected 2 year average growth: 140 Lexiles
actual 2 year average growth: 212 Lexiles
largest growth: 594 Lexiles
7th grade students
average expected growth: 70 Lexiles
actual average growth: 301 Lexiles
largest growth: 421 Lexiles
