Red Lion Area Senior High School Reviews
Red Lion Area Senior High School has numerous opportunities that can really help students thrive. If a student is really ambitious and they look for more in their education, then they will be able to find incredible opportunities. For example, dual enrollment with numerous colleges around the state, internships any time of the year that also count as high school credit, clubs and activities that continue to grow throughout the school, and so much more. However, I believe that there are teachers that drag the school down. They do not put in the effor that they need to in order to see their students thrive in their classroom. I also believe that the opportunities available are not apparent to most students, and I see this as a problem with guidance counselors. When selecting courses, they tell you what most students take, and they expect you to follow the same courses. Many students end up not living up to the potential that they have because of it.
This is a pretty good high school, overall. I've met some teachers over the past four years (I'm a senior) who have genuinely cared about their students and their future and would do anything in their power to make sure you're successful. The only issue I can really find within the school is tolerance towards the LGBTQ+ community. I think that the school and administration itself is pretty accepting as it allows the school to host a Day of Silence run by the school's Gay-Straight Alliance, but because of students, the atmosphere can be very unwelcome for openly queer or closeted students. There are many students who are homophobic and who will even go as far as to tear down posters and put up their own and start social media accounts centered around hate and bigotry. But, I guess some of that can be expected of any school environment but personally, I find it worrying that so many members of the student body feel and behave this way.
Overall the school has immense potential. As a current senior here the school has worsened over the years. The first 3 years of going here HATS were not allowed but i usually wore a bonnet or doo rag when my hair needed that treatment because unlike other races hair my african american hair breaks off easily recently all headwear has been banned because some kids during my junior year were mad they cant wear their confederate hats and got mad at the black kids for wearing bonnets and durags. Fighting at this school has increased immensely and administration is not reasonable in building solutions they suspend both kids. We've had almost about 5-6 fights just these past couple months. We are not allowed to defend ourselves if we are hit first. Going to the office to talk about the problem first worsens it. Racism and favoritism is VERY present. Classes are mostly focused towards kids who plan to work in agriculture or construction or sports.
