Nellie Aquino-Ong founded Reedley International School in 1999. The name was bestowed as a tribute to Reedley College, California, USA, a small community where Mrs. Ong studied and excelled along with the help of nurturing teachers and mentors.
After his success in the Gold Rush in the 1800s, Thomas Law Reed donated the land to the community and the town became known for its excellent nurturing of fruit harvests. This value of nurturing was evident among teachers and administrators in Reedley College and is seen today in Reedley International School.
