Redmond High School is great because, while there is a huge competitive environment and a focus on college prep, it is still a very normal and fun high school. I was one of the fortunate few who were able to experience just about everything. I started out my high school career in non-AP classes, and transferred to AP classes. Wherever your student ends up, rest assured they will be welcomed and challenged by the faculty and their peers. The extracurriculars offered by Redmond High are wonderful and fulfilling life experiences. The teachers who sponsor clubs genuinely care about the activity and the students involved. While we aren't the highest ranked school in the area, we have the best of both worlds. I suggest Redmond High to anyone hoping to have a motivated and ambitious student, but also well adjusted, normal, and healthy child.

I love Redmond because of the culture and the community. There is something for everything to do no matter what they're interested in, and the student body is so immensely diverse that it is easy to discover people who share your interests. There are so many activities that are done to prepare for college such as Career Cruising and our great AP program. The counselors are incredibly supportive, calling every student down to their office at some point in the year to talk about their High School and Beyond plans one-on-one to make sure they're on track with their plans when they graduate. Redmond does a great job of preparing students for life after high school and making students feel welcome and comfortable during the school day.
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!
