My experience at Reed-Custer has been all I could ever ask for it to be. Teachers are helpful and invested in students lives. They truly care about students; you can count on getting help before or after school when having trouble just about any day. Reed-Custer offers many extracurricular clubs and activities that draw in people of all interests. The school faces the same problems as big schools, but the administration does its best to take care of the problems quickly and efficiently.
At Reed Custer High School, I was very happy with the teachers I had and the classes I have taken. The facilities are great and are frequently updated, and the academics are great. I overall enjoy the school and suggest others come to Reed Custer as well!
