In my first year at Red Oak High School I have learned a lot. I have made many friends and can easily get involved in the activites. Like every other school, the food is average, the teachers are not as strict as they should be, and sometimes you just wonder why you're getting taught the quadratic equation instead of how to count back change. (It seems simple but it took me awhile to learn:).)

Red Oak High School is a very typical school in Southwest Iowa. It could be doing better, but it's not terrible. More than anything, if there's something you want to see happening within the school, you just have to start it yourself and be a leader, because that is what Red Oak needs.
I liked how great the environment was and how everyone celebrated everything, like academics and sports.
