This school is excellent. Compares favorably to the private elementary schools in the area. Technology available to the kids is state of the art. Accelerated program is truly challenging. Extra help for kids who need it. Great learning environment - really caring, engaged teachers, and an administration that comes down hard on bullying. Parents are super involved and resources are there when needed for whatever helps the kids.

This is a great school. My cousin went there from kindergarten til 4th grade, she loved it I loved. Its just a shame she was no longer able to go. The children there were so well mannered and intelligent, the taxpayers were getting there money's worth.

A dream come true. We moved here from Los Angeles two years ago, where we were facing the prospect of spending of $20,000 a year for kindergarten. Imagine our delight at finding a public school every bit as wonderful the most expensive schools in LA. Not only are the teachers and administration top-notch, but the community of parents is involved and supportive. No school is perfect, but whenever we have had minor concerns, they have been addressed quickly and thoroughly. Couldn't ask for more.

I think Reed School is excellent. One of my children have some developmental delays. The teachers and staff have been wonderful in helping him to overcome these barriers, as well as helping him gain confidence in his abilities. I am so impressed with the school, that I have decided to buy in the district.

Reed is a model school mainly due to the tone set by the Principal. She sets the tone of respect and concern for each and every child and this resonates through the school and into the classroom. The teachers are excellent and their love of teaching is clearly seen. My child's experience has been wonderful. She has grown and blossomed into a self-confident child who loves life,learning and reading. I give Reed School credit in helping her develop and grow as a student and person. I just can't say enough wonderful things. If you have any concerns the door is always open.

Reed is a fantastic school! children have many opportunities to express themselves through different activites and classes. The final year,(5th grade) that my child spent there prepared her for what was to come at the middle school in a way no other school could. With incredible teachers, faculty, and classes, this is a role model school.
