I would say that there are some really positive things about Red River and some things that could be improved. For instance I have had the opportunity to be taught by some phenomenal teachers, but some teachers leave much to be desired. My most positive experiences at Red River have been through the athletics and music opportunities offered. Red River has a beautiful music department and a state-of-the-art performance hall. Red River truly values the arts.
I also believe that the school does a good job creating fun student activities. A seemingly insignificant but actually fairly unfortunate downside of Red River is the lack of natural light in many of the classrooms.

Tons of electives to choose from to fit every students intrest. From design classes to classes that teach on on the job skills like autos. R
Red River High School is overall a fairly good high school. The teachers are generally good and the courses offered are very good, especially in the technical department there are a lot of options. There are plenty of music and arts events shown by the school including plays. There are also many clubs of various types, including robotics, games, foreign languages, and drama clubs.
