Reedley International School was founded in 1999 by Nellie Aquino-Ong. The name was bestowed as a tribute to Reedley College, California, USA, a small community where Mrs. Ong studied and excelled 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.

Welcome to Reedley International School. I am excited to welcome our students and parents to the journey of the 2023-2024 school year!
Whether you are embarking on this adventure with us for the first time, returning to familiar halls, or considering joining our remarkable community, I extend my warmest greetings and trust that your transition will be seamless.
At Reedley, we wholeheartedly believe in the potential of each student to blossom and thrive. Our commitment lies in putting your child's best interests at the forefront, fostering an environment where they can develop intellectually, physically, socially, and emotionally.
The Reedley Mission is that: “We nurture globally competent and kind students in a happy and caring environment.”
We achieve this by instilling in our students, that as a Reesian, they will strive to make their school a better place to study and the world a better place to live in:
At heart, - they are kind and respectful towards others.
In mind, - they are academically prepared for lifelong learning..and
In spirit, - they are proactive and a positive influence to others.
Our dedicated teachers form the backbone of our school, offering unwavering support and guidance to every student on their educational journey.
With engaging lessons tailored to meet diverse needs, our educators empower students to grow academically, collaborate effectively, communicate with confidence, and engage in critical thinking.
We prepare our students to triumph over the challenges of an ever-changing world, by equipping them with the necessary tools and molding them into successful global citizens.
As a WASC (The Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of School and Colleges) accredited school we are a student-oriented school that remains focussed on providing quality education within an effectively organized school.
The remarkable achievements of our graduates from the previous years serve as a source of inspiration to all. Their accomplishments reflect the academic quality of our program, which fosters self-belief, encourages following one's heart, and intellectual risk-taking.
As the Head of School, I am deeply moved by the sense of community that informs every interaction at Reedley. The mutual respect and genuine care displayed by each individual …..contribute to the tapestry of Reedley's unique and welcoming environment.
It is through this unity of hearts and minds that Reedley's unique and welcoming environment thrives. Being a part of the Reesian family is an immeasurable privilege.
Our chosen theme for School Year 2023-2024 …“One Heart, One School and One Community” …encapsulates the very essence of who we are and what we strive to achieve together.
This theme speaks volumes about our shared journey, our collective responsibility, and above all, our unwavering commitment to our students.
We stand together committed to nurturing and empowering each individual within our community.
As we embark on another chapter of academic excellence, I extend my sincerest wishes to all for a year filled with joy, growth, and triumph.
May it be a rewarding and successful journey for each and every one of you.
I invite you to discover the essence of a Reedley education and explore the magic that sets us apart.
René MacQuillin, Head of School
