Red Bay High is a wonderful school that offers an amazing learning environment along with friendly teachers and memories that will last a lifetime. The only thing about this school that I would like to see change would be the buildings themselves and the amount of programs offered. This school has been standing for over 60 years and yet has never been remodeled, this could pose serious health risks for the students. Being a small public school however, I feel like more programs and clubs could be offered instead of just shoving the students who dont have programs of interest at the school into online classes.

My experience at Red Bay High School was not bad. There are not a lot of people at Red Bay so you will be given a better chance to participate in sports or clubs. However I did not like the fact that because there are not many students, everyone will know almost everything about you. It personally bothered me throughout high school, but others may thrive in this environment. It really depends on who you are and your standards and beliefs.
This school was easy for me. As long as you do your work and study, you will make good grades. However I do not feel prepared for college. I feel like my future professors will laugh at my ignorance.
There are some teachers that teach better than others. Because of those few awesome teachers, I gave "Teachers" 4 stars.
I would like to see more sports, clubs and activities added. I would like to see more student involvement with the administrators especially the counselor. I love that it’s a small hometown school, and I think highly of many of the teachers.
