Welcome to Reid Traditional Schools!

Reid Traditional Schools offers a superior education to K-8 students at our two Phoenix campuses:

Reid Traditional Schools Valley Academy

Reid Traditional Schools Painted Rock Academy

Who We Are

Reid Traditional Schools’ Valley Academy is one of the first charter schools established in Arizona. Since 1995, Valley Academy has offered a back-to-basics, traditional education for students in grades K-8. Painted Rock Academy was opened in August 2012, continuing the mission of traditional education for K-8 students. As public charter schools, Valley Academy and Painted Rock Academy do not charge tuition.

Reid Traditional Schools’ Valley Academy was created by parents and teachers. Our schools respect the role of parents and value their participation. One of the cornerstones of Reid Traditional Schools is strong parental involvement and parental input in academic areas. Parents and faculty work together to create the caring, supportive environment in which students learn.

Students at Reid Traditional Schools are held to a high standard of behavior. School uniforms help unite the student body. Through a continual emphasis on academic achievement, students earn self-esteem through genuine, individual achievement.
