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.

“I believe that GrapeSEED has better met the needs of my EL Students. This is a curriculum that is engaging and age appropriate for kindergarten which is hard to find.”
Ms. Yost at Waterford Elementary
“Before GrapeSEED, I was always pulling materials out of thin air and never feeling confident that they were as effective as I wanted them to be. It feels so good to have a curriculum that is full of fun and engaging materials. The progressions that I’ve seen in my students is phenomenal.”
Mrs. Coleman Hunter at Chandler Elementary
“I became familiar with GrapeSEED over five years ago and it has become one of my most favorites parts of my day. I absolutely love the energy that I see in the kids and how much they love it, how much their families enjoy it.”
Mr. Rhodes at Chandler Elementary
“I was astounded at how you have everything you need. You have all these engaging songs and poems and stories. All the kids want to come to the GrapeSEED lessons. They’re all engaged. They come back singing the songs and poems from memory because it’s fun.”
