The Double R Private School was founded in 1974 by Ted and Brenda Reichle. The school started with only ten preschool children but quickly expanded into a summer camp where children from the surrounding community came to swim, play ball, and horseback ride.
In the following years as more grades were added; the Double R School outgrew the converted garage and porch it originated in. More buildings were added and the old barn that once housed horses became the library and eventually a computer lab. What was once known as “The Little School in the Country” became a meeting place for locals and a safe place for our students to be themselves.
Today the school has expanded, and the grounds have changed but the message and heart behind the learning has stayed the same. At our school, we support traditional family values, encourage compassion, courtesy and respect for everyone.
The Double R Private school provides an educational experience that focuses on the needs of individual students and families. With an average of 12 students per grade our carefully selected educators are able to provide students with the attention they need that is vital to their success. Our curriculum stresses traditional teaching methods with a strong focus on leadership, responsibility, organization, and challenges our students’ intellectual abilities.
Our goal is simple. We want our students to leave here with the tools they have gained to help them for a lifetime.
