Reading Renaissance Master School


"Forest Avenue has the prestigious honor of being a Reading Renaissance Master School for the past TEN consecutive years. This honor was earned by our students working extremely hard to read AR books, doing very well on their AR testing and earning a large number of AR points. Most of our teachers have been recognized as Master Classroom teachers, and the media specialist was recognized as a Master Librarian. We have set a goal to become a Master School each school year!!"
