Redwood Heights does a good job of providing a supportive community for the staff and students. It faces the usual challenges of all Oakland schools. It's a beautiful campus with committed, experienced staff. There is an active music and arts program. The school would do better with a more comprehensive sports program. Overall, a very good school.
Redwood Heights is one of the best schools in Oakland. The staff is professional, thoughtful, and caring. The principal is supportive and tireless in her efforts to make Redwood Heights the best it can be. The parents are involved in every aspect of school life. No child is left behind at R.H.S!
We have been with the school since Sept. 1997 and have 2 kids in the school. We love the teachers and especially the principle, who is always there and knows every kid and his parents by name! I love the school.
We started at RWH in 1993 and are still there with our 3rd child. In a school district that is constantly trying, but never quite able, to get ahead of the game. This school is like a shining star. The principal has very high standards but theose start with her. She is at every meeting and every function. She has phenomenal energy and expects no less of her teachers. The students are expected to behave and be courteous. No littering (in Oakland- this is unheard of!) The parents are there constantly. There isn't a day where at least 20 parents haven't been there to volunteer for one thing or another. The key to a good school experience starts at home. If the first school your child attends is anything like this, they will always love school.
