We had a terrible experience at this school. My daughter was treated differently and unfairly. She was blatently targeted to a point that the school board allowed us to move. I feel that if you are new or not from this area, then you are not welcome. This is not a school for newcomers to Allen or ...  Read more

Two of our grandchildren attend Reed Elementary. Our oldest grandchild attended Reed and is now in middle school. I was a public school teacher in the Austin area for thirty years, but I never had the privilege of teaching in a school as warm, as academically involved as the teachers and staff at Reed ...  Read more

By far the best school my children have attended. The teachers are dedicated to the success of the kids and they are open to parent feedback and suggestions. I could not ask for a better school

The staff are supportive, listen when we have concerns, and truly care about making each student's school experience the best it can be. It is true that many of the parents ...  Read more

I have had 2 children attend this school and I think most of the teachers are great. The Principle team has made big changes in the past 2 years and I feel it will only get better. It does lack in parent involvement, but the ones who do get involved are very dedicated.

We love Reed! My son has never been happier. He has the most wonderful teacher and the school is excellent. They really push the kids to strive for success, but they do it through self-confidence building. They are never negative and always supportive.

I can tell anyone interested in the special education program in this school that it is fantastic. People that truly care about the kids and want to do everything possible to help them be sucsessful and feel that way. They will actually help advocate for your child at times. They keep you in the loop... ...  Read more

Like most schools I've known there are many great teachers but this year we have one who seems to have chosen our child to make an example of, so we are not happy about her now. Parents seem to be less involved for some reason at Reed than at other local schools. When we were in scouts the parental ...  Read more
