Grade 3 Reading Proficiency

Pave the path to reading success by Grade 3

Study after study shows the direct correlation between Grade 3 proficiency and a successful future for our children. Now, more than ever, our students’ future successes depend on what we do today.

From inspiring a love of reading in our youngest learners to building strong literacy foundations, HMH® supports schools and districts in developing personalized literacy plans that support our youngest learners.

Together, let’s lead the way to literacy for every student.

Why does Grade 3 proficiency matter?
  • Decrease Drop-Out Rates
    Children who are not reading proficiently by the end of third grade are four times more likely to drop out of high school.
  • Ensure Students Stay on a Path to Success
    High school dropouts make up nearly half of all heads-of-households on welfare and are not eligible for 90 percent of the jobs in the economy.
  • Ensure Career Readiness Early
    According to the National Assessment of Adult Literacy (NAAL), 7 out of 10 prison inmates can’t read above a fourth-grade level.
