In order to encourage students to be excited about reading, the New Hyde Park-Garden City Park School District participates in the Accelerated Reading Program. The Accelerated Reading Program is a supplemental reading program to our daily reading instruction. Accelerated Reader is a program which encourages students to read more books independently. Students will read books within their independent reading level and then take a computer quiz at school. With each passing quiz, students will earn points to achieve their independent goal.
