I loved Redmond High School - From my Sophomore year to my Senior year, my teachers were great and all of the staff that I encountered actually seemed as if they wanted to teach and/or be working there. Most of the other schools I had been to in Washington State the teachers seemed as if it were a burden for them to be teaching their classes, I did not feel this way at Redmond High School. Since graduating I have lived in Redmond for about 8 years now and I love it! The Eastside is amazing.

If you have never been there, I truly recommend checking out the campus and the city. They are both great. Wish I could be in high school all over again. Go Mustangs!

My experience at Redmond High School was only for my Sophomore year. I started Running Start at Bellevue College junior year and am still participating in it senior year. While I was at Redmond High School, I enjoyed my time. I felt that everyone was very involved. The ASB students made school fun by keeping the school decorated with fun posters, and putting on fun assemblies! I would like to see an improvement in counselor to student ratio. I think there should be less students per counselor so they are able to get to know one another better.
Academically, in general there's a hierarchy much like the current socioeconomical scale in the US: upper class (AP/Honors kids), predominant middle class (average), and the lower class (flunking). College readiness is mostly that there is vastly more homework in high school than the average community college 15-credit workload; in fact, the ratio of high school work to college work could be roughly put at about 2:1. Sportswise, the teams try their best but altogether doesn't rank very high in the district, but not particularly for lack of effort. Parental involvement mainly revolves around what little PTA I assume exists, which moderates dances and parties after football games. Redmond High isn't terrible, and it's a great fit for a lot of students, but it's just not quite exemplary either.
