Slingerland Stability

“We feel that Slingerland has given stability to our test scores in spite of a constant effort by the state to increase the difficulty of the test. We will continue using the Slingerland Approach in every classroom”…Principal

Start with a Book

Early Identification

Early identification and appropriate instructional planning are critical to student outcomes. Slingerland provides the training and support needed to build masterful teachers.

Administrators are impressed with the quality of the instruction and the success teachers and students are having in Slingerland classrooms. The training provides quality classroom methodology in literacy, structured classroom management strategies, and prepares teachers to talk effectively with parents about their children and their progress.

Alternative Text“Yes, it (Slingerland Training) is an investment in time and treasure for our staff and one they have embraced. But the costs are small compared to what would happen if their kids left grades one and two not ready for grades three, four, and five.”

Vince McGovern, Principal, Our Lady of the Lake Parish School, Seattle, WA
