This school is awful the staff and or teachers don't respect the students and the students are way out of hand the news loves to talk about how bad schools like Howard or brainerd are but this school is just as bad the one good thing about this school is the JROTC program but please avoid this school at all costs
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.
