Academy of the Redwoods, Early College High School Reviews

I love my high school. Originally I wanted to go to AR because of the fact that I could take college classes, and I really wanted to get ahead, and sure enough I did. I have been able to take as many as 65 college units and will now will be graduating high school with an AA degree! I was able to grow more than just in academics. I've always been painfully shy and have had to struggle with depression and anxiety. Luckily, the community is so close that I really felt safe and began to come out of my shell. I started reaching out of my comfort zone little by little, and now I'm getting ready to put on a lip sync as part of my senior project! The one issue is sports. We only have basketball, and I know that for some people sports are a huge determinant. Even if that's the case, I still highly recommend Academy of the Redwoods. Not only for academics, but for the amount of personal growth you'll do along the way.

It's a great school that is academically driven but does not have many sports or other activities. They offer many resources, including the most prominent one, to take college classes as a highschooler. The classes are small, which allows students to create a relationship with the staff. The staff is amazing and very supportive. There are great diversity and resources. The school is very safe and offers a variety of food due to being on a college campus. There is a police academy and real officers on campus. The community is very supportive and open to anyone, no matter their ethnic background, gender, etc. This school is more focused on Science and Math, but not focused on art or sports. You can find a variety of clubs and create your own clubs. The academy of the Redwoods encourages student independence and student advocacy. Parent involvement is not very prominent but is still present.
Literally every flaw in this school is due to the district it's a part of. But every year, the school grows more independent, more able to provide for the student as the administrative body sees fit. The teachers allow independence that allows students room to make mistakes and grow and really learn. The AR classes are great and fine but truly the reason this school stands out is because of the opportunity to take courses from the community college. The AR teachers prepare you well for the coming independence of college courses and I can never be thankful enough to them.
