The administration doesn't care about the welfare of their students. They even fired a great teacher for doing the right thing.

I am new to the district. My children will be attending next year (2012-2013). Therefore, I cannot give the school an accurate and honest rating.

Few of the teachers at this school are able to work with students who have different learning styles, special needs, and IEPs in a manner that will enable them to succeed. For the most part, the school's leadership conveys a "let them fail" attitude which can be frustrating and debilitating. Like another parent said on this website, many students slip through the cracks. More can be done to instill in teachers that "failure is not an option." If a student is working hard to pass--work with that student and communicate what needs to be done to his/her parent to pass the course. Don't just let the student fail. To me, the odds are stacked against special needs students at Red Bank High School.

I love being a part of this school. There is so much school spirit and motivation in our athletic department. And as far as acedemics go, i think teachers go above and beyond to encourage us to do our best and go as far as we can. I have met some of the greatest teachers i think i could ever meet.

Under the new leadership of Principal Gail Chuy and Change Coach Susan Thurman, RBHS is once again flourishing like it did in the old days. Its career academies are winning national awards, its athletic and JROTC programs are the best in the county, and its students often beat out the area's private school students in academic scholarship contests. Its teachers even receive rave reviews from parents who formerly sent their children to expensive religious private schools because of the good teacher-parent contact. It's a new era for RBHS, and I am proud to be a teacher at what I consider the best public high school in the county.

I graduated from Red Bank in 2003 I learned more there in the broadcasting program than I am in college! The teachers encouraged me in each subject. Overall, good environment.

As a student I enjoy school. The dress code needs to lighten up a little. Overall I like it.

Great school IF you don't have learning disabilities...teachers do what they are expected, but didn't go the extra mile. As far as extracurricular activities, the student has to be self-motivated.Teachers did not work with the parent as much as I felt my child needed. IF it hadn't been for Sylvan Learning Center, we wouldn't have made it.

I am a graduate of the 2005 RBHS class. Next year RBHS will be undergoing many new changes with the stricter dress code, block scheduling, and academies. I feel during my time at RBHS a main problem was the faculty not supporting the teachers when enforcing dress code, disciplining a student, or such. I ,however, did enjoy my time at RBHS but feel that improvements need to be made. I hope that with the many new changes to come that RBHS will gradually improve.

I also graduated last year from Red Bank. Class of 2004. If you were going to Red Bank, then the person on this page would know that our senoir year we did not have to tuck in our shirts. Plus, this is the best part, hamilton county schools stopped saturday school at Red Bank because it didn't work. The person above should explain that seqouyeh technical school is seperate from red bank and that you hadn't gone their for probly 2 years. But if you went from Red Bank to seq. you are still considered a Red Bank student. I will always stand up for that school.

The only thing I see wrong with Red Bank High School is that I have seen many students fall through the cracks. There is no program in place to help failing students to succeed. It seems to focus more on the students who understand the subject matter, and many students who are struggling are left to figure it out for themselves. This is a big minus to this school in my book.

As a graduate of the class of 2004 I would not recommend this high school to anyone. I do not like the environment of the school. The teachers are great but however the classes are too big and they really don't focus on your individual needs. A certain part of the 'team' is also too harsh on kids. Simple stuff like untucked shirts will give you a Saturday school. When you tell a person you are haivng problems with another person they just watch and see what happens. I would recommend Seqouyah however the teachers there are carin and they personally take the time out to get to know you. The environment there is great and the teachers care enough to come and see you play your sport or event and some teachers become second parents to you.

As a student at Red Bank I must say that I couldn't be happier at anyother high school in Chattanooga. Red Bank students are close to eachother and form famliy like bonds. We all are very close and help eachother whenever needed. The teachers are caring and do their best to teach us what we need to know. They are some of the best teachers I've ever had. I'm proud to say that I am a student at Red Bank High School.

We have had one child graduate from this school. There is NO WAY we would EVER allow our other children to attend this school. We are now homeschooling our other children due the poor quality of many schools in this area.
