Red Mountain High School Reviews

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.
Review Red Mountain High School
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!
I would like to see an upgrade in some of the things around campus as far as infrastructure goes, although I have noticed gradual changes occurring which has really helped the appearance of the school reflect the academic level. All of the teachers here are very supportive of their students and take personal interest in their students lives. The staff, administration and principal are all very welcoming and work with each student to best accommodate each student's needs. There is not a disconnect between admin and teachers and you can tell that there has been significant changes in the atmosphere and resources available to students to push the school to that great level that it is now performing at.
