Northport K-8 school middle grades students who are struggling to achieve target points for College and Career Anchor Standards for Reading are given the opportunity to build a foundation in reading skills using a broad range of high quality text and programming.

One of the programs utilized at the school is the READ 180 program. The program is a curriculum based, focused reading program designed to ensure that students are progressing toward grade level essentials. It offers computer based, individualized instruction tailored to student needs. The program encourages independent reading for pleasure through its lexiled library as well as regularly scheduled trips to the school’s media center to experience a supportive and diverse atmosphere.

In the media center, students are guided towards topics of interest and pertinent information to help each experience progress and achievement in the regular education classroom.
