Reed School, founded back in 1939 has been serving as the center of elementary education for children in Ladue, 13 years before the high school was founded.
The school was named for Mamie Reed, the long time principal who believed in 'putting children first.'
The physical structure has been expanded several times and is much more developed than it was back in the early days. Today, active alumni and parents provide valuable assistance for the growth and well being of the school.
