Mr. John Reid
My name is John Reid, and I am proud to be heading into my 6th year as the principal of Indian Lane Elementary School. The Indian Lane staff has a strong commitment and relationship with its students and parents.  I am honored to have the opportunity to lead Indian Lane as its principal.  Over the past 5 years, we we have built upon on the rich traditions and academic successes that the students and parents embrace and expect.  

I am starting my 25th year in education, 20 as an administrator.  I began as a social studies teacher at Baldwin-Whitehall School District just outside of Pittsburgh. I entered administration as the Assistant Principal at North Brandywine Middle School in the Coatesville Area School District. In addition to being an assistant principal, I was an Elementary Principal, a Middle School Principal, and a Director over my 13 years with the district.  My diverse experience has provided me with unique perspective to understand what children need at each level of their educational experience as well as the supports needed to ensure their success. 

As a father and a husband, I understand the personal nature of education and the importance of ensuring a strong future for our children.  I have three children of my own who are now 23, 21, and 20.  I work each day to ensure that Indian Lane Elementary School is a safe, nurturing, challenging and positive place for your children - a school that I would want my own children to attend. 


I look forward to working with and for all the members of the community.  Feel free to reach out to me at any time through phone or email.
