REACH is an independent elementary and middle school designed for students with learning differences and academic or social challenges. At REACH, we appreciate the unique talents and learning styles of each child, and craft an individual program for each student. Our goal at REACH is for students to become confident and successful, and to discover a lifetime love of learning!
REACH Elementary School opened its doors in September 2019 with ten students from grades 2-5. REACH’s program is carefully designed to meet the needs of students who have academic and/or social challenges while offering an independent school experience.
REACH Middle School is the natural extension for students who could benefit from continuing into the middle school grades in a supportive, guided learning environment similar to REACH Elementary. Each student has a tailored program designed specifically for him or her. This includes remediation or acceleration through small group work and educational therapy, intertwined with a stimulating core curriculum.
A Letter From Our Head of School
I am thrilled to be joining REACH Elementary and Middle Schools as Head of Schools during its third year and second year sharing a campus with Rolling Hills Prep and Renaissance Schools. I was attracted to these schools because I saw an approach to education and community that was innovative, unique, and inclusive with plenty of opportunities in the future. In my 27-year career in education, I have never seen a community so willing to embrace crucial elements of individualized learning that empower and support a broad range of student profiles.
Beyond exemplary educational practices, I am continually impressed by the deeply connected community that binds our three schools together through a shared sense of Husky spirit and inclusive education. As I was learning more about these schools, REACH immediately stood out to me as one of the most innovative approaches to neurodiverse learning styles I have personally witnessed. I am continually impressed by the amount of compassion and commitment I see from the faculty, students, and families who contribute to the program’s success. New schools and programs often struggle to justify their existence in early years, but REACH understands the needs of its community and purpose so clearly, allowing for even greater aspirational goals in the future. Clearly, this type of program is life-changing for many families, and I look forward to finding more ways of positively impacting the lives of our students and supporting them with the best educational approaches we can provide for a neurodiverse population.
Whether you are a current member of our community or a prospective family looking for a new school, I look forward to getting to know you and building ties within our schools and local communities.
Take care and go Huskies!
