Radford City Public Schools Reviews

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.
I have gone to Radford all my life and I have always felt safe while I was there. Radford's staff really has high standards for their students which is very good because it makes us try harder and make us work to the best of our ability. I have always felt challenged but not to the point where I couldn't do it. As I am getting ready for college is very stressful but the guidance department and teachers are very helpful in getting me ready and showing me what all needs to be done. Radford has been a great experience for me throughout my high school career.
