Redwood High School Reviews

If you go to this school, I promise you, you find your place here. Most teachers care about your success so long as you are willing to put in some work. Of course, you will find teachers that most people dislike. On the other hand, the quality of education you will receive is 100% top notch. Although it's academics and teachers are amazing, it lacks a bit of diversity, considering the area, makes sense. The campus is well maintained and quite clean. The most dangerous thing I have witnessed is a fight. Out of my four years being there, there were only three. Our security guards resolve those as soon as it came to their attention. In the past, some of the office ladies in were extremely disrespectful to you but it seems this year, those ladies were replaced with much better people. For juniors and seniors, there is a college and career center to find job postings and ask questions about your plans and college questions. Becky in the college and career center is amazingly helpful!

As a senior, I feel that this school ranks above many other schools in the county in regard to both curriculum and educators. Being a student who is involved in the arts I feel that we have copious amounts of both class options and material wich other public schools nearby may not have. Redwood also ranks nationally among public institutions so I think that is worth being notes. All the teachers are very supportive and there for a student's best interest. It is also worth mentioning that the student body is very spirited and everyone is proud to say they are a giant!
The academics are rigorous and I felt extremely prepared for all the AP tests I took. I felt like I was constantly being challenged, which was stressful but I felt like I grew as a student. Redwood is a highly competitive academic environment, which definitely took a toll on my mental health, especially during college application season. Redwood has very little diversity, and there are a lot of stuck up, white, rich, out of touch kids here. Overall, though, my experience at Redwood has been valuable and I feel like I am ready to tackle college and beyond.
