Discipline has improved dramatically over the last 2 years with the new assistant principal. I feel he really cares about my kids, the safety of the school, and their education. I see him monitoring and he's involved with everything. Great school now that he's there!

The building is very old and students dont really like it much because of this and if it gets repaired it is going to be verry good but the teachers are very nice

Wonderful teachers trapped in a building that is in desperate need of repair. New principal and assistant principal have changed the atmosphere of the building. Staff genuinely care for students. Some behavior problems, but what school doesn't have those? When they get the new building this place will be transformed!

Depressing, dismal appearance in need of vital repairs. Overall condition and appearance directly implies that the students' education rates SO low on the priority list of our local and Tn state government. Does the school board wish to convey to the students who want to contribute to society by striving to achieve academically that their their efforts are basically overlooked and unimportant? Public officials claim repeatedly that tax increases are to improve our schools;however, this has proven to be blantantly untrue. I attended school in this same building twenty-six years ago and it was in poor repair and so outdated at that time. The school board and other 'public officials' tout improvement. Other than attempted patches to cover grossly outdated and broken equipment, would someone in the appropriate position of 'authority' display some backbone and rise to acknowledge these desperate issues at RBMS, and implement positive changes that may be proven!

My daughter had a fantastic three years at Red Bank Middle. Her teachers were caring, patient, and truly challenged her. She was able to earn three and-a-half high school credits. I would recommend it to anyone new to the Red Bank area.

This is one of the worst schools in Hamilton County, TN. The school building is in a major state of disrepair. Take your children elsewhere.
