Reedley High School does the best it possibly can with the little resources they are given. The staff is very hardworking and cares for their students. A really high point would be the marching band which has about 400 students and is famous within the Valley. There are always rumors and gossip about fighting, but really it happens very rarely.
I was so excited for my son to start RHS because of the band. He did have a great experience with the band, but otherwise, I'd have to say I've been extremely disappointed. There have been many fights on campus and bullying. Teachers aren't held accountable for not putting in grades on PowerSchool and many are months behind. Kids don't respect most teachers and most teachers don't respect the kids. My son is a 4.0 student who is bored and unmotivated here. There are great teachers here though, Mr. Friesen and Mr. Diebert and the music program is outstanding.
At RHS, I received all the classes I wanted and I never had to wait in long lines. It all depends when you register for your classes and how smart you are in organizing what classes you want. Most classes usually transfer in new students in the beginning of the month since some students aren't satisfied with their schedule.
I have never experienced such disorganization and unprofessionalism at a school before. On the 3rd day of school kids are still without classes and standing in ridiculously long lines attempting to be seen. Staff claims this is common every year!
