Amory student Greyson Wardlow commented, “The biggest things that helped me with Jumpstart were learning time management and being able to look back over the videos.”

“I learned the most using literature strategies and figuring out how to order sentences,” added Ada Colburn, another Amory student.

These improvements are not possible without the diligence and support of the teachers tasked to help raise scores at Amory. “I was very impressed at how much the students enjoyed Jumpstart and how well it helped their scores,” said teacher Kammie Miller.

The guidance and encouragement of administration also plays a huge role in raising scores. “We are very grateful to have had the opportunity to use Jumpstart in our English classes this year, and we are very excited that it helped our students to improve their ACT® scores and their confidence,” said Principal Leigh Stanford.

Jumpstart Test Prep is an online review program based on over 50 years of work by Dot McClendon, a legendary educator and Mississippi's 19-year STAR Teacher Hall of Fame inductee. "As a teacher at The Mississippi School of the Arts and several other schools during my career, I was able to help guide the preparation of students in person," said McClendon. "Now through our online, on-demand video review, students in Amory classrooms, as well as classrooms around the country, around the breakfast table, or on the couch at home, are able to benefit from our approach."
