Red Springs High School Reviews

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.
I liked how the school is getting the resources now that I am a senior to help kids with the college and career process. However, I wish they would have already had these resources available when I was a freshman so I could have started my college search a lot sooner. Red Springs High school has been a great help with the teachers that are willing to help me and advise me through difficult times.
