Academy of the Redwoods Reviews

The tight scholarly community at AR is one that is not easily found elsewhere. Each staff member cares about all of the students not just as students, but as individuals; every student knows that they can come to a staff member for support, whether it be in academics or in another area of their life.
Being an early college high school, AR offers a program in which high school students are able to earn their associate's degree by the time of their high school graduation, allowing us to interact with professors and college students as well as enter college as upperclassman undergraduates.
Over all, my personal experience has been extremely enriching and has exposed me to opportunities and ideas that I would not have found elsewhere. I am deeply thankful for the experience of being a college student before graduating high school; it has had its high and low points that have all challenged me in every aspect of my life, and I am sure that my fellow classmates can gladly say the same.

During my time as a student at Academy of the Redwoods, I was blown away by the commitment of the staff to their students. The teachers really care about you as a person, not just as a student. AR can connect you to so many resources and the staff are always willing to help you or redirect you to someone who can help better. Obviously, the chance to get college credits is a pretty big deal, but I was pleasantly surprised at how tight-knit the community is. I found myself enjoying AR for the community and the incredible support from staff I received, not just the chance to take college classes. AR has a very positive and supportive learning environment and you don't have to be the best to succeed at AR.
Going to Academy of the Redwoods was one of the most life changing experiences of my life. This school gave me the opportunity to challenge myself every semester to go good in all of my classes. By my second year of high school, the school encouraged me to take college classes and now in my senior year, I have nearly completed my general education with a bunch of other academic courses on top of that I will be able to use to transfer when I go to a 4 year. As a high school student, I can honestly say that I am excited and not scared to graduate and go to college as a full time student and continue in my studies. With all the tools this school has taught me to use so that I can succeed, I now feel independent and confident enough that I can graduate from a 4 year with my Masters or even a Doctorate degree.
