Accelerated Reader


Welcome to San Marcos Elementary School's

Accelerated Reader (AR) program!

AR is a school reading incentive program that holds students accountable for the reading they do at school and at home. Every AR quiz your child takes will earn them points based on the reading level. AR points add up to help your child reach their AR point goal.

Helpful Hints for Parents & Students

  • Your student will be more successful when he/she reads books in their level.
  • Encourage your student to take a quiz soon after they finish the book.
  • Even good readers may have to read a book more than once to help them be successful on the AR quiz.

Here is a quick way to see if a book is an AR book, level, and quiz number.
