“What I most like about Vantage is that my students are coming into class preparedStudent performance after implementing Vantage is incredible. It used to be out of 40 or 50 students, I had 4 or 5 A’s… and now instead of having that bulk of grades in the C’s, they’re in the A’s. We know that reading increases performance, but this is a really tangible way to see that.”
