Senior: It’s a very tight community and the amount of support that is offered to help you succeed is astonishing. We have off campus lunch so the cafeteria food isn’t great but it’s there for those who need it. For such a small school the resources and facilities that are offered are very good. During my time there, the most competitive sports were volleyball, basketball, and soccer. But swim, tennis, track, cross country, lacrosse, and golf were also popular. There’s a lot of enthusiasm And supper surrounding Our art and music programs kids are allowed to paint murals and design shirt to sell and put on theatre productions all on their own. I have seen some seriously amazing and beautiful art come out of this school. Overall I love this school and it’s a great place to pursue your education and the relationships and memories you’ll create will last a lifetime.

Senior: The teachers are all very good and offer assistance to whoever whenever. The school provides a good education & in certain extra curriculars you can find more opportunities to better yourself. There are no sports or many clubs. But there are fun things the school offers. Such as a Bound week where the 7-10s do Artward Bound where they do many different types of art including but not limited to music, painting, poetry, knitting, film, dance, photography, and sketching. The juniors go on Outward Bound where for five days they go hiking and learn leadership & teamwork skills. Redwood Academy's seniors go through Career Bound where they learn about careers many dont often think about & life skills. Although they dont have the best resources they do try their best help all students to succeed.

Freshman: I attended Ukiah High for only a short period of time and promptly transferred for a handful of reasons. That being said, I did enjoy many aspects of the school. On one hand, there was only about 20% of students (a rough estimate) who challenged themselves academically and sought future plans regarding college, which you know isn't for everyone. However, there was a certain "lack of care" that pervaded the student ambience, and personally, I didn't wish to stay in such an environment. On the other hand, Ukiah High did live up to the stereotypical high school rallies, games, and homecoming that made one's high school experience special. As far as academics go, if you found the pool of students who did wish to challenge themselves, there isn't much to complain about. The student sets the bar for how hard to work and how willing they wish to learn--the teachers would piggy back off of their eagerness. Overall, it is a great school if you wish to invest the work--with the right people.

Alum: Highschool was good, like any other student, I would get stressed out with the school work but many of the teachers made the classes fun. Although since it’s a small school, it did not have many electives like how other schools had. The school didn’t not have a Spanish teacher at the time so I had to go take Spanish at the community college.
