Welcome Message

  • Dear Parent/Guardian and Student:

    Welcome to Reading High School! This year will be one of excitement and challenge for all of us.  I am very excited for the upcoming school year and am looking forward to RHS continuing its journey toward being the best high school in the state!  We also welcome the 9th grade students back to RHS for the first time since 2010.  We are excited for the possibilities with the Class of 2022!

     Here are some of the highlights from the 2017-2018 school year: 

    1. We had 807 graduates this school year. 
    2. 75% of our 2018 Graduates are enrolled in Technical School, 2 year or 4 year College or University, or the Armed Forces.
    3. We exceeded the necessary growth in Math and Reading for Keystone and made the projected growth for Biology. 

    The first day of school is Monday, August 27. Open House will be held on Wednesday, September 5 at 6 p.m.  We strongly encourage you to continue to be an active partner in your child’s education by attending this event.  You will have an opportunity to meet your child’s teachers, as well as follow their daily schedule.

    Please read the back-to-school information carefully. It is designed to help each student begin school in the best way possible.  Special attention should be given to our opening day schedule.  For the first day of school, your child will be attending school at a given time based on their assigned grade.  The schedule is attached for the first day of school.

    I look forward to building productive futures as we focus on a year of positive growth and learning.  GO RED KNIGHTS!                                                                                                                                            

    Sincerely,
    Mr. Eric Turman
