    I have two children at Redwood and will soon have two more. It's not just the teacher quality or the lack of safety and discipline issues that have caused me to want to enroll my children there. It's the culture of the Redwood Family. This is how elementary schools should be and probably used to be decades ago...

    I have three kids attending this school. So far all the teachers they have had the past four years have been awesome. They are very much in tune with each child. I went to Redwood as a child and Redwood is still as great as it was when I went there. I would recommend everyone that is able to attend this school to go there. This year we have a new principal so we will see if the school improves even more.
