Great enviroment for children to learn. Focuses on values and morals where alot of public schools have lost that.

Great school, this school is definitely a 'family' that we have become part of. Excellent academics, teaching straight from the bible. Highly recommended

Academically, I think RCS K-6 is a sound school, just slightly above public schools in the area. Biblical teachings and character building are excellent. And of the 2 elementaries campuses, I recommend Crossroads over Redwood. Grades 7-12, however, is lacking in all areas. Curriculum tends to be narrow-minded and outdated. Extracurricular activities are sparse. Many obscure rules. Hypocrisy runs rampant. Tuition is much too high considering these factors.

Our grandchildren attend Redwood Elementary and Junior High and have been going to Redwood since Kindergarten. Our grandchildren have had some transitioning and challenges in their lives in the last year and the teachers and staff at Redwood has been very supportive and caring. Because of the support and concern at Redwood our grandchildren have actually maintained and in some cases bettered their grades. I believe they were both on the honor roll this year. The academics are outstanding and the faculty and staff very sincere. Each teacher at Redwood truly reflects God's love to their students on campus. I would highly recommend this school to any parent considering a move to the Castro Valley/San Leandro area.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
