The school is predom black of course, but there is a little diversity among teachers and students. I’ve been there all four years of my high school career and I hated it. The majority of the school really enjoys the band. teachers were horrible and very rude making education hard & there were some that were so sweet and dedicated to teaching (mostly the electives teachers and the E.L.A or the Social Studies Department). Administration was horrible. Lunch was never good but the principle offered us zaxbys and chicfila from the restaurant reps she hired to come in. The student population was pretty much everyone knowing each other since middle and elementary school, cliques, and so many physical altercations. Currently there’s active duty police on site and a k-9 just in case there’s another brawl and I mean that literally. There’s also a new no cellphone policy which includes headphones, airpods etc.

Redan High School is a school that strive for academic achievements with the purpose to help students to scholars. With many helpful and engaging teachers who truly seek to help you in your academics and give you various knowledge in your career goals on professional and personal levels. The school faculty truly seek to teach you without any alterations on their job. As a raider, students are expected to exceed above the norm and thrive for something original, unique, and self definition. It is a place where students were more than high schoolers, a place where young adults are transformed into scholars who seek and thrive for knowledge and prepare themselves for their futures, whether to a be an entrepreneur, math teachers, or scientist, Redan High School is a place where young adults can learn and define their futures.
In Redan High School, you will find yourself finding friends, or people you connect to, very quickly. The teachers always try to push you to achieve more than you can even think you can. The classes are very diverse. We have very exciting pep rallies, which every student is very excited to attend.

I would like to see Redan to expand on the sports diversity aspect. There are many people that are wishing to see a Men's Volleyball Team. I think this would be a very positive addition to not only Redan High School, but also DeKalb County.

This is my overall experience with Redan High School.
