Reid School teachers expect students to be reading good quality literature both in class and at home. Our new “Reading Lists” web page includes several reading lists of books from which students may choose to read and/or are expected to be reading.
Since 1987, Reid School has provided academic instruction to students in Salt Lake City, Utah. Today, we are proud to be the first private school completely dedicated to the use of the Exemplary Center for Reading Instruction (ECRI), and we pride ourselves on the outstanding academic achievements that we help cultivate in our students.
The simultaneous instruction that we offer our students focuses on subjects such as reading, spelling, oral language, writing, comprehension, and general study skills. Also integrated into our program is instruction in literature, mathematics, social studies, science, and the fine arts. By teaching students how to use their time wisely, at Reid School, every child will learn.
Below are a couple of poems written by students about their first experiences at Reid School.
The first day at my new school
I didn’t know if I’d be cool.
Going to a new school causes so much fear.
I don’t recognize anyone here!
My heart was beating so much more
When I walked through the school door.
I walked through the halls very shy,
Then everyone said, “Hey, it’s the new guy!”
I had a great day.
I wasn’t expecting it to be that way.
The people turned out to be really cool.
I love my brand new school.
Ryan Trevino, Fifth Grade
Making Friends Today
Making friends and eating lunch,
Playing at recess and coloring …
Are all things I liked today!
I wonder what things
I will like tomorrow?
E’lynn Brown, First Grade
