Reed School Association

About the Reed School Association

Reed School Association (RSA) is the parent organization that supports the school by sponsoring events, fundraising and coordinating volunteers. Together, we provide human and capital reinforcements to help Reed School’s teachers and staff focus on educating our children and enriching their learning experience.

In addition to providing support, RSA helps build community. RSA sponsors a wide variety of social events and opportunities to help familiarize you with Reed School’s teachers, staff, and families of your child’s classmates.

There are so many ways to participate in the Reed School community. And frankly, Reed and RSA need you! We’re always looking for help with events, fundraisers, school-related services and communications. Email us at, and let us know your interest, skills, and availability.
