K - 6
Reed Ranch School is a K-6 rural elementary school located approximately 17 km east of Olds on Hwy. 27. We offer a complete academic program and students are organized into these classes - split graded until 2pm then tripled graded. The kindergarten operates two days a week (Tuesday and Thursday) in a portable adjacent to the school. There is a private playschool program that operates out of the kindergarten room one morning a week. Reed Ranch operates on a four-day week and a normal week runs from Monday to Thursday. When a holiday falls on a Monday, the school week is from Tuesday to Friday with the Monday schedule moved to Friday.
