We are very, very pleased with the software from Essential Skills. We use it from grades 1-7. These programs are also great for our older students who are performing below grade level. It very much supports the curriculum.

The kids really enjoy using the programs from Essential Skills. We bought the programs for our K-1 students and we are happy with the results. You really can't find similar programs that are so economical.

We use the Essential Skills programs with our K-2 students on a daily basis. They are used in the afterschool program as well. We like the way the way the programs reward and reinforce student learning. The Marks Manager for tracking and reporting student achievement is very useful to us as well. Ever since we started using the programs for reading intervention with our first and second grade students, we have seen that our third and fourth grade students are much more ready to learn.

We have nine Essential Skills programs that we use with Kindergarten through Grade Five on a daily basis. These programs are great for supplementing and reinforcing the classroom curriculum. They certainly do teach the essential skills. It is easy for the teachers to manage and easy for the children to use. We've really enjoy the software.

We have 4 ESS site licenses at our school and we use the programs for specific skill intervention. The programs are used in the regular classroom but more with remedial reading groups and Special Ed. The students work with the programs 2-3 times per week. We have noticed definite improvement in targeted skills

All students K-4 use the software and have been using Essential Skills Software for years. The skills in the literacy programs correlate to the state standards.

We use the software from Essential Skills everyday. These programs help prepare the students for State testing because they correlate so well with the Core Content Standards for the State. I recommend these programs to other schools.

The teachers absolutely love this software and the children beg to go on these fabulous programs. These programs exceed the needs of the children. When we switched to using Essential Skills Software our costs went down significantly from using the Waterford program. Kids absolutely love the graphics. These programs were developed by teachers who really do understand how children learn. Class work has improved in the area of decoding and word recognition skills. Test score improvements on the IRI can be in part attributed to these wonderful programs. As a bonus the computer and keyboarding skills gained on these programs makes the children more ready for ISAT testing.

We are really excited about the programs from Essential Skills. They are exactly what we needed. The students love the programs and find them fun and motivating. The teachers like being able to go into the marks manager and get reports to use in parent conferencing. I'm a great believer in your products!

Deborah Forest, Principal
Principal, Principal, Oklahoma

We love your software and use it with our kids every day. These programs also really help the kids who are lower functioning and at the beginning stages of reading. The children respond well and are motivated to learn using the Essential Skills programs.
