Independent research, foundational studies, and field
testing provide clear evidence that Saxon Math students
show immediate, dramatic, and sustained improvement.
Saxon gets results!
It's a phrase that is heard consistently in Saxon classrooms across the country. Saxon products and programs have a proven record of success in every type of school setting—urban, suburban, rural, public, private, charter, and parochial.
The success of Saxon programs can be attributed to the program's unique, effective, and research based pedagogy, which helps students develop a deeper understanding of concepts and how to apply them.
Knappa School District, Oregon
I have used Saxon Math materials for the last nine years in both regular education and special education settings. Our school's statewide assessment test scores are consistently high and we attribute this to the Saxon Math program. The curriculum uses manipulatives at the primary levels and continual review at all levels. Saxon has many unique implicitly taught strategies for problem solving that develop as the program progresses. I would highly recommend Saxon Math at any grade level!
John W. Raper Elementary School · Cleveland, OH
I have used Saxon Math in kindergarten, first and second grade. I really like the presentation of the lessons and how the material is given in small chunks to hold the children's interest. The format is easy to follow and consistent. The students become familiar with it and, therefore, are not intimidated by newly introduced concepts. The students really look forward to math, and enjoy the combination of manipulatives and paper and pencil activities in each lesson. I would recommend Saxon Math for all grades. I believe it provides a strong foundation for students of all ages.
Oriole Park Elementary School · Chicago, IL
Saxon Math has been utilized by our school for many years. We just recently updated our 6th through 8th grade materials. We will be updating our 4th and 5th grade this year. The instructional materials simply provide a great foundation and has allowed for Oriole Park to be a great success. Our students consistently have done well. Saxon Math provides the structure and the challenge needed. We look forward to using this math program for years to come.
Tyndall Elementary School · Tyndall AFB, FL
Tyndall Elementary has been using Saxon Math for eight years and every year our students have performed well on the State Standardized Test. The percentage of our levels 3—5 on the math 2006 FCAT were higher than the district's and state level. Last year, on the math FCAT our fi fth graders raised their learning gains from 70% to 89%. This year, we had the highest math scores on the Math Diagnostic Test in Bay District.
We strongly believe that Saxon's continuous spiral of the Florida Math Sunshine State Standards has helped our students retain and gain math skills. What more proof than being the only "A" school in the district for seven years in a row.
Basis Scottsdale Charter School · Scottsdale, AZ
Because Saxon is so well written and organized, it frees the teacher to teach. We keep lessons to about 10 minutes. We model. Students practice. Then we begin working on the cumulative problem sets. This is where most of the learning takes place. Most of the teaching is done student to student. In this way the classroom has 25 teachers not just one.
We feel with Saxon that all students can learn. Because of the cumulative problem sets and incremental development the kids learn and remember. They learn past the mastery level to automaticity.
