Red Lion Area School District Reviews

The teachers are absolutely amazing. The administration at every school in the district leaves a lot to be desired. They care only about their salary and not about the well being of students. They only care if they are getting paid. They couldn’t care less if a student makes a small mistake - they will blow the consequences out of proportion. By the same token, they’ll also play favorites and give certain students an immense number of privileges and immunities from punishments. The academics are good if you take good classes (AP & Honors), but the school itself is a joke. The teachers are the only good thing except for sports and music. The administration makes the stupid decisions that are asinine, like closing down bathrooms because a few kids decided to Juul.

My experience within the Red Lion Area School District was a solid experience. I feel that my there are many opportunities provided to students, and it is up to the students to take advantage of those opportunities to get the most out of their education. I wish we did not participate in state testing so we could have more open and realistic conversations instead of teachers having to cram and worry about covering a state-based curriculum. I feel the teacher-to-student ratio could be improved in the District at all levels. While I was an honor roll student, I observed that there was little time for teachers to help students who needed individualized help. At the high school level, I feel an adjustment to the teacher-to-student ratio would allow for more individualized and realistic discussions, debates, and experiences in a small group setting. I believe this would develop more personable relationships between teachers and students to better prepare students for their future.
Personally I did not enjoy school here because I felt that the administration was semi clueless, they didn't give us any reccomendations for classes that could make us stand out for college or prepare us for our majors in college. I also felt like they were more concerned with the smart kids and athletic kids doing good than trying to help everyone. The students are also very judgemental and inmature, it might be like this for all school but I feel like no one really supported each other and there was a lot of back talking over stupid stuff and i just feel like it was a very negative community. The teachers were amazing though and knew what they were teaching and were good at what they were teaching. I only had one class though that I feel really prepared me for college and I wished there were more teacher, especially when students get to there senior year, that would be more strict and maybe teach a little bit like a college professor would teach.
