Team Reed is comprised of Reed MS PTSA, Friends of Reed (FoR) and Friends of IHP (FIHP) booster groups. These 501(c)3 nonprofit groups collaborate with our Reed students, parents, teachers/staff, and community to improve the educational experience of our students and families.
FoR & PTSA focus on school-wide events and fundraising that benefit all Reed students across grade levels and academies. FIHP is a booster organization focused on Reed's Individualized Honors Program (IHP) -- the oldest of its kind in LAUSD.
Welcome to the Team! Your family & student will automatically benefit from all the school-wide events and programs that are planned and supported by FoR & PTSA! That is why most Reed parents participate with BOTH organizations and FIHP families with all three! We also encourage students, parents, and staff to "officially" join PTSA by becoming a member in order to vote and receive additional benefits. See the PTSA section below for more information.

Reed PTSA is the heart of Reed. Every student is valuable! PTSA provides a way to support every student at Reed MS in a meaningful way -- both on our Reed campus and through the efforts of National PTA, the largest volunteer child advocacy organization in the country.
