Redmond Middle School is a great school if your child is in the advanced curriculum. Otherwise, the classes are pretty mediocre. Their Algebra and Geometry teachers are amazing, and write tests, homework, and curriculum all by themselves. Their curriculum is much harder than the state-issued curriculum however, and you child may find difficulty their. But, this level of difficulty prepares your child for the End Of Course exam, and even if they fail the class they will most likely pass the EOC. The school also provides a variety of extracurricular activities and electives.
the best word to describe this school is bad. escpically for math. that's all u need to know
This school is horrible i had to use the bathroom on my period and they wouldn't let me use the bathroom witch is a violation to my rights and they wouldn't even let me call my mom. Dont bring your child to this school.
I think the teachers and staff are great but there is a real drug problem that is "hidden" in my opinion. I know they do all the can to keep it out of the school but it's still a problem and when my kid is feeling peer pressure to try these drugs I am concerned.
I was on the site doing some research and decided to submit my experience with Redmond Jr. High. With much regret, we had to leave the school earlier this year due to a job transfer. It was only a few months into the new school (which is also highly rated but much less personal) when we understood how great we had it at Redmond Jr. This is hands down the best; If I could, I would put mine back there in heartbeat. The teachers and staff make this truly the "Nordstrom" of middle schools!
i was a student there. When I was in 7th grade i had a teacher yell at me, i had done nothing wrong for all i knew. I asked what i didd wrong she didnt tell me. The students there are mean. If u zone them out and ignore them it gets worse. In 8th grade the principal was nice but didnt do anything when I told Him i was harassed. He didnt belive me. In the summer of 9th grade i told the new principal She cared and did somethng right away. If i had told the Vice principal He would have done something. My grades were bad. It didnt help that the teachers didnt care. Only one of them wanted to help me. I give my old school 3 stars! more then it deserves....
The teachers are excellent! They have one of the best science and math programs in the state. The principal knows the students by name, and makes it a priority to know 'his kids' and do what he can to make the school a fun, friendly place where learning becomes a desire, not a chore for the students. It is an environmentally friendly school with a top notch recycle program and an energy efficient building.
The greatest junior high ever! The teachers are good and everyone is nice. It's a great school to get prepared for high school and college and has a wonderful academic program. Everyone is experienced in teaching and in the school system. Best school choice by far!
I have attended Redmond Junior High for three years and it is a very good school. The school has huge amounts of computers and other technological devices. Ninth graders have challenging honors classes that account for lots of credit in college. The only problem with the school is that it is very crowded.
i think this school is great. when i was in seventh grade they made you feel well by having some kind of seventh grade preparation day. and i'm in the advance placement class for algebra and it reall yis a fun class. plus the after school sports are great too. the teachers there are really nice and some of the teachers are strict but the time flies really fast inthos classes
There are problems with the special needs program. Too much of the implementation of the plans is left to individual teachers, and some of them try to apply the same remedies to all the special needs students, regardless of the nature of the student's problems, the fact that that approach has failed so far, and despite all we parents can do. Most teachers try, but many just don't know what to do. My child needed organizational help, and most teachers just gave reduced assignments, which just made them less interesting and made things worse. This review is based on 3 years, with things getting worse each year. I can't speak to the 'Gifted' and 'Advanced' programs.
Great school, it really tries to put you in the classes you belong in. It has gifted program and Honors for 9th graders and sets up a good building block for AP classes in highschool.
I loved RJH I am not a parent but I attended it last year and then I moved to Tolt Middle School and I am planing on going back. It had great teachers and was a beautiful school.
The teachers are good, there is a real nice learning environment. The Principal can really connect with the kids. The vice-principal is way to hard on the kids and doesn't really have much of a sense of humor.
If you have a special needs student, this school is NOT the one you want them at. They have a very hard time abiding by plans set in place to help the student, such as the 504 plan. As long as you fit into their cookie cutter mold you should be fine.
My son had great grades and enjoyed school until he went to Evergreen Junior High. Now he attends Redmond Junior High and he loves school again. The staff members are great and all I have to say is 'Thank You' to the staff at Redmond. I have two boys that attend there and they both love the school. Highly recommended! A+ school.
Redmond Jr. High is an excellent school, the teachers stay after school to help, the teachers are very suppotive of their students and well, it's the perfect school for all. Every student should attend Redmond Jr. High.
