My four years at RSHS were very fun and I learned a lot throughout the years but like every school they do have to improve in a lot of things. Academic is something they obviously work on everyday to make better but we need to reach out to move educated individuals to enrich the students there. Another thing is helping students, whether it be for a class or college they don't really help as much, they expect us to automatically know everything. Finally, when it comes to clubs and classes were very limited to that as well, we only have clubs that teacher are willing to do and clubs that the sate supports like beta club.

My experience at Red Springs overall has been interesting. I was really nervous about transitioning to high school, but when I got here I found it’s really no different than my previous school years. As with all schools Red Springs High School has its negatives. In certain parts of the school, classrooms and bathroom facilities need to be renovated. We also need new textbooks. I have 4th lunch which is the last lunch of the day, so sometimes food runs out and we have to get an alternative meal. Red Springs High School is a small school in a very tight knit community so therefore everyone knows everyone and we are all like family. With all the bad and good things, Red Springs High School has exposed some things about myself and my abilities that I didn’t know I was capable of. I will miss it when I graduate.
Red Springs High School is more of a family than it is a High School. Teachers are connected with students on a personal level. No other school I've ever went to or heard of is like this. If help is needed, you can ask any teacher and they will give you a helping hand without a doubt. The only thing I would like to change about my high school is the process of becoming college ready. Although some AP courses are offered, I believe school administration can do a lot better when it comes to preparing the students for college. Many AP courses are offered at other school, but only a select few at Red Springs. I believe if the school could do that, it is the only High School i'd ever want to attend.
