Welcome

For over two decades, the Reid family and friends have dedicated their lives to providing a superior public education to elementary students. In 1995, concerned about the public school system, they worked to create a challenging, respectful learning environment for their own children. Since then, thousands of children have benefited from the hard work and focused vision of these parents. We invite your family to participate in the vision with your students at Valley Academy or Painted Rock Academy. Our schools offer enrollment to students in Kindergarten through 8th grade, and we offer a private preschool for four-year-old children.

Our office hours are Monday – Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Our Achievements

Valley Academy Is a

Blue Ribbon School

Reid Traditional Schools was named a National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education in 2014. The award was given in honor of Valley Academy being an “exemplary high performing school.” Only four Arizona schools received the award that year, and Valley Academy was the only charter school to do so. Mrs. Victoria Wilber, RTS Valley Academy Principal says, “This is one of the most prestigious awards a school can attain, and I am so proud of our dedicated, talented teachers and smart, hard-working students.” Reid Traditional Schools’ Valley Academy was one of the first charter schools founded in Arizona. Since 1995, the school has consistently received the top available rating from the Arizona Department of Education. Mrs. Wilber explains, “We attribute this 20-plus-year record of academic success to our unwavering dedication to traditional education and our team’s commitment to continuous improvement.”

Painted Rock Academy Named Charter School of the Year

The Arizona Charter Schools Association has named Painted Rock Academy the 2017 Charter School of the Year, stating the school has “established itself as a model of consistency” in its academics, continuing to earn “A” ratings every year the labels have been given. The Association stated “a stable, committed group of teachers and strong parental involvement are the hallmarks of Painted Rock’s success.”
