Reid School began in 1987 and focuses on providing customized instruction for every student. Not only do we have higher academic scores, but our students have a lot of fun!


Reid School's mission is to ensure students' academic success by: 1) teaching students how to learn, 2) teaching new content daily, 3) providing a safe place for learning, 4) providing consistency, and 5) requiring commitment and responsibility from both teachers and students.

Why Reid School

Reid School is a child-centered school. Each student is placed at his/her appropriate instructional level in reading, mathematics, and in the sciences which allows each student to move along a continuum of tasks as quickly as he/she masters the material.


Reid School is totally dedicated to the use of 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.


Dr. Ethna R. Reid is founder and director of ECRI and Reid School. She has been an elementary and secondary teacher, a principal, and a supervisor in public schools. She has authored many texts and conducts graduate courses and professional development in-service seminars for teachers.


Dr. Mervin R. Reid serves as president of Reid School Inc. Teachers at Reid School have teaching certificates; are qualified; have received in-service to use ECRI, KRS, and ECLE; and recognize the importance of communicating and collaborating with parents.

Reviews and Curriculum

Read what Reid School students and their parents have to say about their experiences with Reid School.

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.

Computer Science

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.

Student Life

Students select elective classes and participate in various sports, clubs, special programs, and many extra-curricular activities throughout the year, which are all part of students' daily life.

Service Opportunities

Reid School students' service to other students, parents, and staff, and staff's and parents' service to students create a valued, shared responsibility.
