While there is rarely a single solution to student achievement gaps, it appears that utilizing technology to motivate and support student learning is one ticket that works.

The main benefit of Study Island is in test preparation. It takes away the fear. It builds self-esteem when a student experiences growth when no other process has worked for years.

"Their grades improved a lot. The programs have helped them improve with their homework and school studies in all the subjects. One child is in the seventh grade, the other is in the fifth, and the little girl is in Kindergarten. They were having problems in school with math, but the programs helped them improve.”

Over the course of the last five years, we’ve had a total of 416 seniors enrolled in the Plato program; 407 of those students have since graduated, giving the program as a whole a graduation rate of 98 percent.
