“BrightFish Reading is the perfect supplemental resource for providing reading instruction based on students’ individual needs. At middle and high school, we have students who have been struggling readers throughout their academic career. BrightFish provides age-appropriate personalized instruction focusing on foundational skills and building up to comprehension. We are excited to realize the potential of our students through BrightFish!”
–Lory Reddel, Middle and Secondary Reading Supervisor, Hillsborough County Public Schools
“Our first, second, and third grade students participated in BrightFish Reading during our summer reading program. The students LOVED the program and were excited to earn certificates. As a teacher, I was impressed with the student interaction component of the program and the well-planned sequence of student learning activities. EVERY student that used BrightFish Learning during the summer reading program had a POSITIVE growth score at the completion of the summer.”

“BrightFish Reading is an engaging and rewarding program for all students. The story choices and activities interested my students and kept them striving to reach their goals. I was especially pleased with the training, customer service, and communication from the BrightFish staff. I hope this is a program my school will continue with for years to come!”
Flomaton Elementary, AL
“I was hesitant about another ‘program’ to help my students. BrightFish Reading exceeded my expectations. Kids were eager to come to my class to work on their BrightFish stories. They wanted to correctly and quickly complete a story. My office walls are full of their certificates and the students take pride in seeing their name on the wall when they complete stories.”
Morris Slingluff Elementary, AL
“Using BrightFish, my students were interested in learning how to read better. It’s an investment that is worth it!”
Felton Lab Charter, SC
“BrightFish Reading has great potential to improve students’ reading, if implemented correctly and if students understand that it will help them read much better and much faster.”
The New America School, NM
“At the beginning one of my students lacked the confidence to work in BrightFish independently. He would look for teacher support during each lesson. Now he leads our class in BrightFish. My students love to show me when they complete a story and get their certificates!”
Spout Springs Elementary, GA
“I had one student use BrightFish on her mom’s cell phone while waiting for her brother to finish ball practice! Loved it!”
Cloverdale Elementary, AL
“As a teacher, my experience with BrightFish is rewarding. First, there are new features added to the program because of teachers’ input. BrightFish Learning listens to the people who actually interact with students on a daily basis. Next, to see the students so engaged in the learning process gives me a feeling of accomplishment, and it gives them a sense of accomplishment as well. The students practice their reading skills daily and gain confidence. BrightFish Reading keeps students on task and provides teachers with the data for 1:1 interaction, which is essential for growth in reading.”
Choctaw Central High School
“BrightFish Reading is a great program and an awesome learning opportunity during a “normal” school year, but it is essential now that we are serving our students differently. I require data for 2020-2021 IEPs and this will be an additional source for which I am so thankful!”
