If you have a choice...DO NOT send your child here. Although my child's Kindergarten teacher is excellent, she struggles with still teaching bilingual children their alphabet and sounds 7 months into the school year...leaving my child (who can already read) bored. The school is overcrowded & dropping/picking
... Read more up your child from school is a MAJOR PAIN!!! Waiting in line for at least 20 minutes to get to the front! Not once did the kindergarteners take even a simple field trip to the fire dept, or anywhere else. They constantly have fund raisers, which only ever pay for 5th graders activities. Obviously this school is lacking in funds from the district to supply a memorable experience for the majority of children/parents. Read less

My son started at this school this year as a second grader and I have to say I LOVE this school. I had so many problems with his last school and Reynolds just outshines any other school I looked at by far. The staff is caring and always willing to help, his teacher is excellent and overall it is a good

Excuses will not excuse this school. Look at the scores and the state similar schools ranking. Great schools rating of 4? Do research. Something is amiss and its the kids education that suffers.

We are so glad our kids are out of there. We saw how those Teachers turned on the brave PTO Group that accidently discovered the Principal had been stealing from the kids, the school and the District. at 2 different schools. Even after she went to jail some tried to raise funds for her by selling "Restitution
... Read more Bread" to teachers & parents. The Principal also allowed a family member to cater lunches there to raise money in her support. They are a vindictive group with a mob mentality. There are a few good Teachers there but not many. Very few ever participated in fundraisers, helped with school beautification projects or showed up for the end of year celebrations. Look at scores and run. It is known as an old school where Teachers go to pad a few more years to their retirement. Just so you know a teacher and the Principal monitor the site daily and write the positive reveiws to counter the truth. Weak Leader & weaker Team! Read less

This last person sounds disappointed because they sure sound like one of the teachers that the reviewer before spoke of, all correctly. I too, along with many other families, bailed on Reynolds when this situation with the previous principal occured. Not because of the crooked principal or even the new
... Read more principal who we have no issue with at all. She's quite good actually. The issue with this school is indeed the teachers. Several of them are rude to parents, students (I've witnessed three of them yelling at students at the top of their lungs) they were incredibly rude to the ladies who had the bravery to uncover and report the theft that was occuring. Many of them are burned out and really need to retire. I agree with you though, check the school out. There are a handful of teachers there that make it a great place for your kids. You need to find out who they are and get your kids into their classes and ignore the rest. Read less

I am very disappointed in the review from May 2, 2011 - the dredging up of issues that happened in Spring of 2009, were dealt with by authorities and are NOT affecting our school now. We have a GREAT principal, wonderful teachers, and a very active PTO! Tthere are problems - budget cuts, increased
... Read more class sizes, lack of material, and lack of parent participation! I am very happy to have found this school. You will see how hard the teachers work with very little resources. Their test scores are skewed by their "genetic" make up -A number of students are English as a second language with Spanish speaking parents. Reynolds has made great strides to keep educating our children in the midst of one of the biggest budget crises in California. I emplore you to visit this school first before making your final decision Read less

I have just experienced the community outreach that Reynolds has. Students and teachers came together to send over 20 boxes of holiday goodies to the servicemen in Afganistan. Letters and cards were written to boost the spirits of those that are serving our country. It is nice to see that Reynolds

I have been thrilled with my son's experience this year. He has Mrs. Clark for his fifth grade teacher and she has done an amazing job in motivating him. I am very pleased with his development! Mrs. Thompson is also exellent--she is a very hands-on principal who cares about children.

* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11.
