    I believe Seymour Redding is probably one of the best elementary schools in south-central Indiana. Their teachers care and reward excellance. They disapline when required to do so and conrol their enviroment.

    I really like Redding. It is an excellent school. My son has spend the past 6 years at Redding & is preparing to go to the Middle School this fall. My daughter is preparing for 3rd grade. They both have had academic struggles & many very good teachers to help them along the way. The teacher/parent communication is really great & the princpal is always there to help. They also have a wonderful music teacher that even writes his own songs. He makes music very fun for the kids. They have a 4-H group that meets at the school a drama club & 5th grade sports. It also has the best PTO group ever the kids also come first with our PTO. They make sure that the choices they make will benfit the kids for along time not just today. I would recommend this school to any parent.
