My granddaughter is in preschool at Reid and we are extremely excited about her progress in such a short time. She only attends 3 days a week and her most frequent question is, "can I go everyday". The school is just different, and their philosophy is the child comes first and I see the results of that with my granddaughter everyday. I would highly recommend that you start your child's education at Reid, you will be pleased that you did.

Both of my children have attended Reid school since preschool. I drop them off to school each day knowing that they are in good hands. Reid school offers a great education and a sense of family. If you want to understand more about Reid School philosophy, I encourage you to read the book called The Influencer by Kerry Patterson. This school is much more than penmanship.

We could not be more happy with our decision to have our 2 daughters attend Reid School for the past 5 years. Reid has given them the opportunity to excel academically in a safe, nurturing environment. Their test scores certainly reflect this, but their happy attitude about school is an even greater indicator that the teachers at Reid have provided them with a solid base on which to build their life-long love of learning.
