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!

I had a great high school experience at Redwood. I thought I was provided a great public school education that challenged and prepared me for college. I like the size of the school and the community and club opportunities the students could be involved in. I played on a couple of sports teams and had a lot of fun on those too! The one thing I wish it had, that I wish all high schools had, is a home ec class to help students learn more about applied world tasks.
Redwood High School provides many resources for students to succeed in college, but fails to provide or emphasize courses for life skills. The facilities are very well-maintained, and the sports fields are really high quality. An interesting distinction between Redwood and other academically focused schools is that while there is little school spirit, a large portion of the student body does participate in a sports team of some sort. While some courses seek to expose students to a variety of views, there is little political or ideological diversity at Redwood, making it often difficult to have meaningful conversations about important topics.
