John Reed School works hard with parents to ensure the highest level of success for their children.

Parents play a critical role helping their students succeed—your support is the most important factor in your child's ability to grow and learn. 


Every child. One voice.

The John Reed Parent Teacher Association (John Reed PTA) is committed to increasing parental involvement and support for our John Reed School students, faculty and staff.
