Redwood High School Reviews

As an immigrant who moved to the US in the middle of my sophomore year, I can say that going to Redwood High was the best decision I could ever make. Even with a Poor Diversity on the school, all the students get along very well even the ones with totally different backgrounds. In general, the teachers and all the staff including the principal David Sondheim <3
The ELD program is excellent, Redwood was the place where I met friends that I will have for my whole life and I just have good memories from it, I will miss Redwood once I leave for college but I hope to come back one day as a teacher and be able to give that school back everything they made for me!

I loved my time at Redwood. There are many activities and clubs to get involved in. Teachers really care about their students and the administration is supportive. The best thing about the school for me is the therapy access, which is phenomenal!
Redwood has excellent teachers, the majority of which have master's degrees in their chosen subjects. My senior year, 4 of my teachers had Master's degrees from Stanford. I found college to be easier than my AP courses at Redwood.

The administration is top notch and their happiness trickles down to the teachers and from them to the students. Everybody LOVES Redwood!
