Welcome back to 2022-2023 school year
We can’t wait to start a new year, focused on relationship building, excellent academic experiences and hands-on learning!
Our teachers and staff are ready to greet all incoming students and make our newest students feel welcome and inspired to learn. In Reading, our goal is to provide high-quality education in a space where everyone feels safe, cared for, appreciated, and understood.
We believe that all students can achieve at high levels. We are committed to ensuring every student is inspired, supported, and challenged to grow.

It’s Pennsylvania state law: every child must be fully immunized to attend school. A child must have the required medically-appropriate vaccines or a plan to complete those vaccines, or they may not be allowed to attend school.
To help our families meet these requirements, we are hosting several back-to-school immunization clinics.
