R.J.E. Programs
Reuben Johnson Elementary has many programs designed to meet the needs of a variety of learners.  Many enrichment and acceleration opportunities exist as well as programs designed to assist students who need extra support.  Some of these programs are as follows:

  • Student Support – R.J.E. provides support for students needing dyslexic support and English as a Second Language (ESL) services.
  • Special Education – We provide a full range of special services for students with identified learning disabilities including resource, content mastery, and inclusion.   Special education students are integrated into the general education population with the necessary support to ensure their success.
  • Alpha – Alpha is McKinney I.S.D.’s program for identified gifted and talented students.  Parents, teachers, or the student themselves may nominate students for the Alpha program.  Please see your child’s teacher for more information.

R.J.E. Parents
The RJE Parent Teacher Association (P.T.A.) is the best around!  The P.T.A. provides parent education, environmental programs, community service, and cultural arts programs for students, parents, and staff members that enhance the learning environment.  Many parents volunteer on a daily basis at R.J.E. and are an integral part of our instructional program.  Parents, mothers and fathers alike, assist students with reading, help with projects, and practice skills with our students.  On average, Johnson parents clock more than a thousand volunteer hours each month.
