Redondo Union High School (RUHS) is undoubtedly the BEST high school in the south bay! The school has an astounding amount of club joining opportunities to get involved in the community. At RUHS there are AP classes that are hands on, highly informative, and offer tutoring for each student. The athletic programs allow a wide variety of students from different backgrounds to learn and develop in each sport. Redondo Unions Associated Student Body does an excellent job at hosting activities to keep student, staff, AND community engaged. Overall RUHS is a great high school 10/10 would recommend.

Here are some reasons why I love my school. RUHS has one of the best high school campuses in California. Our campus is about a mile long, complete with 2 gyms, 2 turf athletic fields, 2 baseball fields, 12 tennis courts, a swimming pool, and an amazing auditorium. When I played lacrosse (which by the way, we are one of the few schools in the South Bay that has a girls lacrosse team), players on the opposing team would tell me how nice our campus and fields are, and when my cousin came from AZ to compete in a football tournament that my school was holding, he was in awe of our amazing facilities. But our campus isn’t the only thing that makes RUHS great! We have over 100 clubs on campus, and we’re the proud home of an award-winning school newspaper (High Tide) and yearbook (Pilot). In addition, RUHS doesn’t have the high school stereotypes like you see in the movies. With over 3,000 students, you’re bound to find people that you connect with and make high school more bearable.
I love RUHS because there are always so many opportunities. I've had many great experiences with teachers such as Mrs. Wimer. She was my Algebra 1 teacher last year. Before having her I had been absolutely terrible at math. However, I excelled in her class, got a 98%, and actively participated whenever I could. EveryEverytimetime I see her in the halls I always get excited to say hello! It is important to note that my school has so many people and students from different backgrounds, which I think is part of what makes it so great. I cannot wait to continue my last two years there and feel so blessed to call RUHS my school.
