My experience with this school was not great last year, but I think it was specific to my son's teacher then and his own personal problems. This year we have very high hopes because his teachers are great and the way they run the fifth grade classes teaches them responsibility without giving them too much to handle for their age group. I do think the some of the staff (including the principal) are actually too lenient on the kids who are misbehaving though.

The kindergarten program is awesome especially Mrs.Pyles.My grandson is starting first grade there today.I am sending prayers up for the students and teachers.

Do you want to see successful public education? Visit RES. The parents, teachers, staff, administrators, and community work together. The results are happy, successful children who are eager to learn. Community members, impress upon our Board of Education, specifically Jeff Langham, Kitty Graham, and Larry Teel that our community desires a full K-12 campus!

Simply put ..the best. I only hope the area gets Middle and High school in area based off this model. Finally teachers who care about children and teach. This school from the Principal to the janitors are the best of the best. I feel my 4 children have been blessed to be part of this school. Thank you so much we love Redland!!!

This is the first year Redland has been open. I have three children who attend this school. We moved into the area specifically for this school. The leadership is incredible. The environment is extremely positive. Teachers are top notch and very qualified. I can't say enough about Redland!
