combining the best of progressive and traditional education
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.
I think Reedley is a kind place. Reedley helps me learn that bullying is bad. Everyone in Reedley makes me happy. Teachers help me be smart.

You’ve created a place where many children are able to grow and find themselves.

I thank you for Reedley because I would be nothing without [this school]. In life, two most important things for me are my FAMILY and SCHOOL. When I came to Reedley I found both of those things.

I have learned countless lessons both academic and non-academic in my 11 years here in Reedley. Every academic lesson I learned from first grade up until fourth year here is what's making sure that I pass University but what really formed me as a person are the lessons that can't be taught on whiteboard. Here, children will be nurtured and more importantly will learn how to nurture not only themselves but those around them as well. Students were helping each other out and more importantly, teachers were always eager to help out students in what way they can.

I used to be okay with just being “okay”. I never really saw my potential. But as Reedley put it, each child is an achiever. I could not agree more. Starting from my study habits, which changed ever since I went here, to the discipline that I didn’t know I can acquire, Reedley continuously helps in equipping us with the traits and values that we need in our lives.
