Our Reading/L. Arts program is from SAVVAS, formerly known as Pearson. Eman Schools uses the reading/l. arts series myView for students in KG-5th grades and myPerspectives for students in 6th-8th grades.
The contemporary instruction in myView helps teachers address literacy, content areas, social-emotional learning and – most importantly — student curiosity every day in the classroom. Read more about SAVVAS myView here: SAVVAS myView

Eman Schools classrooms start novel reading in 1st grade. By the time students are in high school, they have read many of the classic plays and novels such as: Hamlet, My Antonia, Midsummer Night’s Dream, Raisin in the Sun & recently added The Nickel Boys
Eman Schools has implemented the Accelerated Reading Program in all classes from KG-12th Grade. Students read books that they enjoy and then take the coordinating reading/comprehension quizzes and (if offered) vocabulary quizzes to earn points.
High Schools students also take Speech (dual credit COMM 101), Journalism/Yearbook, and Creative Writing (dual credit ENGL 202) Classes to further their exposure and ensure college preparation. High School students also have the opportunity to earn College Credit while in High School by taking AP Language and Composition and AP Literature and Composition classes.
