Reeves Middle School is a "School of Distinction"
Reeves Middle School is a "SCHOOL OF DISTINCTION". This is a recognition by the state for outstanding improvement in reading and math sustained over a five-year period. There were 101 schools in the state that received this distinction and only 22 middle / junior high schools. This recognizes schools in the top 5% of improvement for their levels! This recognition is due to an incredible collaborative effort among staff, parents, students, community and the district. We are very honored to receive this recognition and be among the top 5% in our state. Thank you for all of your continued support, without it this recognition would not be possible. We will keep pushing ahead and the sky is the limit for Reeves Middle School!

Students who raise their grade before the next grade check will be eligible for the following week but not the present week.
Exception: IF the grade is the result of a mistake then Mr. Sebring must receive a note from the teacher by the following Monday morning (student's responsibility) stating that the student's grade has been raised to a C- or above.
