Welcome to Reeths-Puffer Schools

Located in Rocket City, U.S.A.

Rocket City is Reeths-Puffer Schools. Our border stretches over five different townships, but our mission focuses on only one goal: success. Success for our students in the classroom, in college, and in life. Success for our families who roll up their sleeves and care for a school system second to none. Success for an unrivaled faculty fueled by innovation and compassion, and educated by over 250 college degrees. Learn More
