Red Mountain High School Reviews

Red Mountain High School is a school with a clear purpose and path for its students. The administration and students live by the mantra, "Courage, Respect, Influence" and it shows. Students are recognized for displaying these traits and are rewarded for their success in both academics and extracurricular activities. However, in order to try to further these ideals in all students, the school has implemented the "Red Mountain Change Exchange" which is a rather elementary attempt to persuade students to behave well (the receive a coin for good deeds which can be exchanged for prizes). In total, though, Red Mountain High School offers a plethora of excellent academic opportunities and encourages students to get involved at the school beyond their classes.
Review Red Mountain High School
This school is considered an excellent high school in the Mesa Public Schools district. Though I have no other high school experience to compare it to, I must agree! The academics are excellent. I enjoyed all of my advanced and AP classes- the teachers were knowledgeable and caring, dedicated to helping the students do their best. A great variety of sports and clubs and music opportunities were offered. In fact, the choir is one of the best in the country and the softball team won the state title several years in a row! The campus was well-maintained and clean, although several things needed to be updated (like the restrooms). Ultimately, I enjoyed my experience there.
Red Mountain High School has awesome and helpful teachers, administrators,counselors, and other staff. The schools academics are totally great but sometimes leaves no room for improvement. The school lacks diversity and more union between students to make it a better school!
