Achieve 3000 at BRMS

Walk into Benjamin Rush Middle School and the program called Achieve 3000 is common jargon for middle school students. The Achieve3000 program believes in the potential of every student to achieve more. By reaching individual students based on a unique academic profile, confidence is built and improvement in outcome is realized. Founded in 2000, Achieve has grown quickly, and today serves more than one million students across America.

The Achieve 3000 program believes that:

•The challenge of so many students being unprepared for college and career absolutely must and can be solved

•Every child — talented kids, ELL kids, special needs kids, gifted kids, all kids — deserves equal opportunity to reach higher

•In order to reach higher, every student needs to and can read and write above level — and that this is the surest path to self-esteem, intrinsic motivation and academic/lifelong success

•There is no such thing as an underachieving student — every student is ready and able to start achieving

•Web-based differentiated instruction, using nonfiction content and real-time Lexile assessment, is the difference maker

In Debbie Bruce’s seventh grade Reading Class, the use of Achieve 3000 is one way reading skills are sharpened each and every day.

“The Achieve 3000 program is based on non-fiction articles. First of all students must form an opinion about what they are reading. Then they must state the content of the article or ask a question. The whole process affords them the opportunity to comprehend what they’ve read as well as seek more information about the topic. As these articles are completed, students earn points for their work. Each day there is the opportunity to earn points. Daily and weekly top earners are awarded a certificate,” Bruce said.

There are two students that have truly stepped up their game. On March 20, Nick Komlanc and on April 28, Caitlin Philpot achieved what very few have done. Each of them scored the most points in a single give day compared to all students in the state of Indiana. They received a special certificate of recognition and their names were posted to the top daily scoreboard.
