Teachers in particular have told us how their students, especially struggling students, have been able to improve their scores by several percentage points. What is particularly gratifying is hearing that their students love working in Study Island,” stated Cathy Caldwell, vice president of Publishing, Math and Science at Archipelago Learning. “Developing programs at the high school level was a natural next step for us. Our clients are interested in having them and we know the program will continue to help students succeed as they move on in their academic career.”
