GrapeSEED: It’s English for Opportunity
For over 50 years, GrapeSEED has typically closed the language gap in half the time required by other English curriculums. National research shows that children typically take 6-8 years to reach grade level proficiency. GrapeSEED students reached proficiency in speaking and reading in just 2-3 years. It also enables at-risk students to grow faster than national peers in every category of language fundamentals.
From The Principal
“I have not seen another tool that engages students as fully as this program, while growing language skills. The students learn how to speak in complete sentences, have polite conversations, and are able to choose extension activities related to the learning in GrapeSEED.”
—Darla Campbell, Principal, Berrien Springs, MI, USA
