Red Mountain has always been on the path to success. The academics and sports have always been phenomenal in performance and are always progressing forward. With the new motto of Courage, Respect, and Influence, leadership has been shown even more throughout the campus. Red Mountain's community is safe and friendly for anyone who comes. Our teachers are doing everything they can for each student to succeed in high school. No matter what you're into, Red Mountain has some kind of program for that which has made many students more involved in extracurricular activities. Not only can students be involved, parents and family members are always welcomed to events going on!

As a senior who has been attending Red Mountain High School since freshman year, I can positively state that this school has been a place of great memories. As the semesters have come and gone, I have been astounded at how much effort and compassion most of the teachers here have for their students. I've also have been in Track and many of the performing art classes and they have been wonderful programs in which I have not only have learned immensely about the subject but have also made a wide variety of friends. I give this school 4 stars in it's over all ability to motivate students to participate well in clubs and academics!
The teachers are interested and concerned on what the student's needs are. It is demonstrated in the teacher's attitude and actions they have done that the students at the school are a huge priority for everyone in the school faculty. Also, even the education is the crucial part of being at school, the staff cares about the future of student's in terms of lifestyle. They push the idea of good character and being a hard worker overall to get the students motivated about doing good while in school and taking advantage of it. Besides school staff, the leaders of the school such as Student Council have shown excellent involvement in their school, striving to make it a fun, diverse, yet academically eminent place.
