Red Mountain High School is amazing. The teachers and administrators are wonderful and eager to help! 2 years ago the top choir and orchestra students were invited to perform an hour concert at Carnegie Hall and this year the choir was invited AGAIN to perform at Carnegie Hall with Eric Whitaker which they did. This school has a top performing arts program (drama choir orchestra band dance etc) but excels in so many other areas there is something of interest for every student. Many families get boundary exceptions to attend this school. My 3 students all graduated from R.M....they are very different and they all loved the school and found their own clubs and activities to be involved in. Sports creative arts FAA engineering robotics this school has it all! Red Mountain strives for academic excellence and provides great support for students who may be struggling. Many graduating students receive large scholarship offers from top universities. There are also opportunities for parents to be involved. Everyone should be lucky enough to attend a school like this!

i like this school most all the teachers are nice and after a day or two it seems so natural to be walking around The classes can be challenging and the teachers go into detail on their topics to let kids be able to understand or ask question. )
Horrible school. Teachers are inadequate and do not have control of their classrooms. Unless your are in sports your child is overlooked and will not get the attention they deserve. Classes are over filled. If you have a choice send you child elsewhere.
Alumni There no better school. I went to a state college have to say my high school was harder. They prepare us that I not surprised at the number of ivy league students.
I am an Alumni of Red Mountain so I'd like to give back.
Our son is a senior at RMHS this year and we have been very impressed. Our biggest fear was that with high schools this big how do kids get to feel that they are part of things. This school goes the extra mile to invite those opportunities. Our son has been very happy. He is involved in Sports as well as Orchestra. Mr. Berkseth organized a chamber orchestra trip to NYC that was incredible. Teachers like Mrs. Dilbeck Mrs. Dawson Mrs. Rios and Madame Nebel made our son's experience very positive. We are grateful to RMHS!
I went there and it was amazing. No place could be better. every one cares for each other.
RMHS is in my opinion the best high school in Arizona! I'm an alumni who graduated in 07' and I will NEVER forget the experiences that I have had in this school. The teachers/staff are excellent the school provides so many opportunities for you to be successful and prepares you for the future! It would be wise to take advantage of all the programs offered at Red Mountain (D.E. classes clubs the list goes on!). All in all I was very satisfied with the education that I received from this particular high school. It is highly recommended!
RMHS offers a lot of different oppurtunities for students. Like Club RIF NJHS and their Debate team. The teachers there are great and from my experiences with teachers they really do care about us students and they are preparing us for careers that will likely come available in the 21st century. I can't recomend this school highly enough!! Lions Don't Lose!
There are several great programs for advanced academics as well and the school has been given many awards for its top notch teachers. My child and I are both extremely satisfied with the programs and level of teacher commitment given at RMHS. As a side-note I'll comment on a parent's previous post about the orchestra. As an orchestra parent myself I felt that it was only fair to the readers to post and say that I know for a fact that parents were given more than two MONTHS notice about the orchestra field trip (and eight months for this year's!) and my student claims that it was the best trip of her life. The director DOES in fact believe in chair placement. After taking private lessons last year my daughter did move up several chairs. We have no complaints and are both very happy with the direction the program is going.
I am very impressed with the quality of help my son is recieving in his special education class. While my son is mainstreamed for several classes Ms. Bocksteller has asssisted in insuring that he gets the supports needed to be successful in those classes She has been a tremendous support to both my son and I.
Red Mountain is an excellent school. Anyone who says otherwise is taking what they have for granted. The fact that students are able to get a top-notch education is something of which families in less-fortunate settings only dream.
The choir advanced academics and sports programs are all excellent; a very good school. I enjoy attending and being a Mountain Lion.
Quality of academics is average at best my child sometimes has a hard time getting before/after school help from teachers. The quality of music/orchestra class is very poor. Also the orchestra instructor does not believe in rating chairs never moves the kids up if they deserve it. The field trip was poorly handled this year communication was very bad and 2 weeks notice was given about details of the trip then they arrived home at 2 15 a.m. on a Sunday. Red Mtn has been a very bad experience for my A student who continues to try to excel.
Outstanding school in every way. Terribly impressed with the teachers and extracurricular activities
This school has great sports programs and a nationally recognized debate team.
Excellent school! The sports programs are of good quality as are the instructors for the advanced cirriculum.
This school is diverse both in academics and extra curricular activities. My sister attended Red Mountain all through high school and was able to participate in more activities than I think even she was able to handle. She was heavily involved in student council and learned a great deal about leadership and accountability. Her academic skills were also tremendously improved during her time at this school. This is one of those schools were a student is only limited by his or her own ambition.
Its a great school. Rotc is great too.
As a former student (1994) I am pleased with the education I recieved while attending Red Mountain. The classes teachers and extra curricular activities prepared me for life in the real world. The overall atmoshpere of the campus was one of fun and unity. If I still lived in the area I would be proud for my child to be a Mountain Lion.
