Red Hill High School has a great staff of highly qualified and well educated, caring personel. The school is barely 4 years old so it is very up to date with modern equipment. I feel the communication from teacher to parent could be better.

its a joke if you think that its a nice place. They let fights go on. And they do to treat you differently if you arnt in sports or dont have any popularity. Its one of the worst places ever.

One of the most highly motivated school in southern Il. The teachers and staff are both professional and courteous to ever students needs. My child is neither an sport star or academic marvel, but he has been treated with respect from teachers, staff and other students. For the first time in his school career he wakes up and looks forward to going to school. WOW!

Economically disadvantaged male students, not in sports seem to be treated discriminatorily. Complaints, that these students are targeted and harassed to the point of losing motivation to attend. These students profoundly disagree with the extreme punishments they receive. This may be corruption and an appalling abuse in power. A research study is underway to submit for approval. If approved to conduct, it should determine any correlations between economically disadvantaged students (easy targets); low scores; drop out rates compared to the excessive harrassment.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
