Red Clay Consolidated School District Reviews

I have been in Red-Clay my whole school career and have never had a problem. I am going to graduate in June and I can confidently say I feel college ready. Every teacher I’ve had has been super supportive and always willing to go the extra mile for their students. The classes offered at the high schools help you find which pathway you wanna take in college. Each day I look forward to seeing my friends and learning copious amounts of information. I’ve even learned things I will use in the real world, like how to do my taxes. The clubs and sports teams turn into your second family. The students are so nice and always inclusive.

The Red Clay Consolidated School District is a very well organized and parent-friendly district. The faculty is always willing to assist any family with any problem, and the in-school faculty are caring for their students. Red Clay is always sending out information to keep parents updated and aware of their child's behavior and grades. Personally, I feel that this district has a very good school wide system regarding lunch, however, I feel that the mandatory fruit should no longer be mandatory. This is because many students do not want the fruit, either because they do not like it or believe it to not be good, and since they have to take it they just throw it away. I have seen many unbitten apples and bananas or fruit cups in trash cans because students simply do not want to eat them. This is a waste, therefore, it would be better for the District to remove the mandatory fruit and just encourage healthy eating.
Red clay is a great district really welcoming and friendly there schools are like family to you your teachers treat you like friends, family and children in every situation they have your back and are always there for you but at some point the district sucks lol because we don't get a lot of school day off as compared to other districts and i love school day offs and when you don't get it you are pretty annoyed but well other than that our district is great and welcomes every race.
