Red Hook Central School District Reviews
Red Hook is a great school in many ways; the sports teams, music and arts department, and dedicated honors/AP/IB classes provide rewarding challenges for essentially anybody. However, in recent years, the administration has taken a turn from being respectful of students (while of course being assertive when required) to being known for its 'helicopter parent' methods. The involved student body, passionate teachers, and multitude of activities available mark the major positives of the school, while a disorganized yet heavy handed administration and a noticeable political division are the major negatives that come to mind.
Red Hook High School has always been able to assist me. All teachers are extremely friendly and are able to connect with the students on a personal level, creating a friendly and safe environment. I believe the administration has good communication, and the school as a whole is very organized and challenges all students. Red Hook High School has been very kind to my family and I, and have always truthfully answered all of our questions. The multiple IB and AP courses offered has made a different for the students at Red Hook, and has pushed them in order to be prepared for their years at college. Overall, we are very thankful we picked Red Hook as the school my siblings and I have received our education.
Red Hook High School is a pretty good place to send your kids. Although its small it manages to have a wide variety of classes, clubs, and sports. They offer IB classes as well which many private schools in the area do not. The student services department is terrific but the faculty on average isnt anything special. The School also doesn't have an auditorium or anything similar- just a gym. Some clubs and sports aren't yet supported at the school as well, however a student can start their own club with permission at anytime. Overall Red Hook High School is a pretty good place to be, I will miss it dearly.
