Academics Program

Reid School is the first private school to be totally dedicated to the use of Exemplary Center for Reading Instruction (ECRI) instructional methods. These methods have been validated by a panel of evaluators at the U.S. Department of Education as being significantly superior to other reading and language arts programs throughout the United States.

Reading / Mathematics

In both Reading/English and mathematics classes at Reid School, students are placed at their instructional levels. Students move ahead in the curriculum as rapidly as they demonstrate 100% mastery.

Social Studies / Science

Instruction in Social Studies and the Sciences begins with hands-on learning. Field trip experiences, resource persons, and laboratory activities are critical elements in providing concrete and vicarious learning experiences for the students.

Computers / Technology

Reid School students spend alternating quarters in Computer Lab 1 where they are taught keyboarding, computer usage, reading, and spelling skills (KRS) and in Computer Lab 2 where they learn to use the computer to augment/enhance their classroom studies.


Music, literature, drama, foreign language, and the arts are part of Reid School's daily life. We believe that a student's creative ability is nurtured and developed as specialists work with them daily in classes and with special events.

Field Experiences

Learning doesn't happen only in the classroom at Reid School. Frequent field trips provide hands-on learning. The use of field experiences and resource persons who come into the classroom to add 'spice' to the lessons increase students' interest and knowledge in the subject they are currently studying.
