Redmond hig school has a plethora of advanced and college-level courses to choose from. The teachers are exceptional overall, and there is a great emphasis on preparations for college.

I do not even know how this school could be put on a site for 'great schools'. As a junior at Redmond High School, many areas of this school have room for improvement. The teachers are alright for the most part, they seem to be nice people, but a lot do not really care about the students, or the subjects they teach. The AP classes are espescially bad, they are just preparation for a test at the end of the year instead of actual learning. The school has a good amount of activities, but they seem to be pretty boring. I am a member in many school clubs, although they are fun, really we do not do much there except talk with friends in the same clubs. Sometimes the administration does not let us advertise our clubs, or doubts whether we are a true club. They should know what they offer.

This school is a mess. Administration is terrible. They are not there to help the students or the parents in any way. The Principal is blind to the actions of his vice principal, with how he interacts with female students and staff members. He is completely out of line in his actions. This school is in dire need of a 'Major Change' Acedemics are not a major concern for any dept. except Math and Science. They seem to be the only depts who care about a students success. It is a terrible shame to put your child through this school for 4 years and they get nothing out of it. The distict should stop turning a blind eye to the administration and start helping the students.

This school is not what it seems. The teachers are not there to help you. If anything they bring you down. The students are stuck up and pushy. This school has accused me of many things also which I find is the worst part about it [is] they're against you instead of trying to help.

Major problems in the administration. The philosophy of learning and how students aquire this is faulty. It is not a good school if your child has a learning disability. Staff has no special training that matches research on methods to help different learners succeed. Even if your student does not have a learning disability the staff of teachers are not helpful or much concerned with the kids as individuals. It feels like your student is just a number that needs to be in attendance so the school gets their money. I don't recommend this school to anyone.

The administration of this school needs a tremendous amount of work. Most of the teachers are great. Science and Math depts. excell with great excellence. At least these teacher care about their students. Most teacher however, just want to pass the students to the next level to be done with them. They don't care that ALL kids need an education.

I have had four children graduate from this school and all four have excelled in their college careers. This school provided tough academics and great support. Indeed parent support grows every year.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted August 10, 2003

I have some questions about quality of teaching staffs. There are some teachers who does not even remember students names throughout a year or years. I have three children who had the same teacher and all these three children were honor kids. Some of them worked as honor society members under certain teacher and she did not remember their names.. It is basic to remember your students' name...It is a small point but if there is a teacher who remember you 10 years after the graduation, it means a lot to you...this teacher is from the other High School in the same District.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the High School Proficiency Exam (HSPE) to test students in reading and writing in grade 10. Math skills are tested by the End-of-Course (EOC) exams. The HSPE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
