ARE WE PROGRESSIVE OR TRADITIONAL?
Reedley implements the unique Reedley Synergized Learning Approach (RSLA) by synergizing the best practices of the progressive and traditional approach.
Our academic curriculum has a set of routines, structures, and standards in place. We teach Life Skills, study habits, memory strategies, test-taking skills, and problem solving so that our students know how to think critically, decide soundly, and apply knowledge in practical and real-life situations.
Our teachers nurture our students by giving personalized attention and guidance. We teach literacy, numeracy, and the humanities without focusing on rote learning, but by removing the boundaries between these subjects and creating connections within them.
In synergizing progressive and traditional approaches, RSLA aims to nurture each student to become successful, and yet compassionate and kind, in any role, relationship, or situation in life; exemplifying excellence and prudence at heart, in mind, and in spirit.
We are proud to say that 85% of our graduates have been accepted to the top 5 local universities and foreign colleges.
Our teachers and administrators are regularly trained abroad. We use world-class learning materials, including textbooks from Singapore, UK, and the USA.
Academic consultation, after-school review, and review classes for college entrance exams are integrated in the school’s academic program.
Traditional schools tend to focus on measuring students based on stringent quantitative standards — an indicator that does little gauging the true potential of every child.
Conventional schools reward the successful, ignore the average, and dismiss those who are struggling. Average students experience great stress to become achievers, and the struggling ones are frustrated enough just to pass.
Reedley acts as a roadmap and mentor that nurtures each student to reach his or her potential and aim higher with less stress.
There is a strong misconception among students, parents, and schools that learning and success should entail stress. However, strict, authoritarian teachers may not be effective educators as they may elicit a “Fight or Flight” response from students, resulting in anxiety and frustration.
At Reedley, we raise the students’ morale and self-esteem so that they show more initiative and greater disposition to learning. We have institutionalized a positive and challenging learning environment where teachers are approachable, open-minded, and kind so that students can participate actively; explore their interests, and experience success, both big and small.
As “co-parents”, we make sure that students are happy to be in Reedley. We give them a nurturing, anti-bullying environment to learn in.
We keep class sizes small, so that our teachers can give each child the personalized care and focus that he or she deserves.
Each child has a customized action plan to address his or her developmental needs.
Furthermore, to help our students handle bullying, manage stress and face challenges, we offer our flagship subject, Life Skills, and Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
