Reed Intermediate School is a CARING COMMUNITY .....

Every person at Reed Intermediate is an important member of the community.  We use the Responsive Classroom Model of cooperation, assertion, responsibility, empathy, and self-control.  We also do lessons using Second Steops which teaches empathy, emotion management, and problem solving.  We teach students to advocate for themselves and reflect on their behavior to make the best possible choices daily.
