Is accelerated reader accurate/effective?

We are considering a private elementary school for our son and they use the accelerated reader program. Is anyone familiar with it? Is it any good or effective?

  • I hated doing AR because I topped out early and couldn't find enough books at the "right" level to meet points. For an average reader it is great, if your child reads more than a grade above their age it can get tedious/annoying. It didn't help that our school implemented it halfway through and all at once.
