My experience at Red Bluff High School has been nothing short from ideal. The faculty has been extremely motivating and helpful when a problem arises. One outstanding factor about this school is that there are endless amounts of people the students can contact when they have questions regarding college, scholarships, and academics overall. The students generally are great about showing their support and school spirit, and never fail to make school events memorable. However, factors that Red Bluff could improve upon includes challenging their students more and creating more of college style teaching techniques that allow students to explore their style of learning that suits them the best.

Though I am only a freshman, my experience at RBHS has been so far great. It has a good college preparation curriculum (all students are required to complete a pathway in Career Technical Education that prepares them for a specific industry), teachers with personality, large groups of students, plenty of sports, and a convenient cafeteria (food’s free this year!). The only real problem I have is that there are certain areas the school tends to focus on more than others (I blame it on the rural location) and not an abundance of non-athletic activities. However, I enjoy my time at the school with a wonderful community and even some options not available to other schools (NASA internship).
The environment isn't set up to be all that conscious nor is it inclusive of all of its attending students. Red Bluff is a small town located in the region of Northern California where there isn't an abundance of diversity taking place. Although, because it is a smaller community there are higher opportunities of students gaining one-on-one time with their teachers.
