I like the overall environment. I feel safe when I am in the building and I feel I can voice my options when needed. I feel they make my education and other students education their number one priority. I feel they have the students best interests at hand and want to make us all successful. They offer a good amount of classes, but I would like to see more. I would like to see a bigger variety of classes students can take.

Radford High School was a fun, small high school with many opportunities for inclusion and activities. The school size was good to form close-knit relationships with both peers and teachers, although the size was a disadvantage to meeting a wide variety of people. The school was not very diverse, however. Overall, it was a great place to be challenged and prepare for college life with wonderful teachers and staff.
While Radford has a great education program at the moment, very few classes actually prepares students for SATS, ACTS, and college. Their facilities are not the greatest with rodents and cockroaches being stumbled upon almost daily. Their teachers are oblivious to the amount of bullying that goes on in their classes and most would rather care less. On the outside, Radford seems like a fantastic school with a decent sports program but other than that, it is just a rotten as any school can get.
