Reydon Public Schools provide a comprehensive education to all students so each one may attain his/her full potential. The application of its mission statement has led Reydon School to high levels of achievement in all areas. The school has not only good test scores, but also students of character who pursue and enjoy learning and who lead in the community in a variety of ways. One of the ways Reydon has attained such goals is through the use of many effective methods of communication among all members of the educational hierarchy: administration, faculty, support staff, students, stakeholders, and the general public.

The administrators at Reydon know what the students' educational needs are and have dialogues with the teachers and students to ensure that the most important learning needs are met. When the faculty, staff and students know their educational needs will be met, lessons are offered in a safe and creative learning environment which produces confident and successful students - all as a direct result of communication.

In addition, the teachers communicate with the parents through an online parent portal system. Using this tool, parents can daily keep track of grades and progress in the classroom. Reydon maintains an "open house" policy wherein parents and community members are welcome in the building at all times. This might be merely for observation or to help on a classroom project. When everyone maintains open lines of communication, students are the benefactors. They enjoy learning and serving the world around them.
