    Our kid enjoyed this school and the excellent staff who knew our entire family by name. For several months I picked up and dopped of my kid and I don't remember ever seeing any problems with other parents teachers or the kids. There was a lot of leniency with homework which I appreciated. The other students were all very well behaved and I never heard of any problems on the bus or playground. Family atmosphere & great field trips. Some of their teachers moved on though and they were short-staffed for a while. Our child couldn't handle computer-based learning in the higher grades so we moved on too.

    I totally disagree with the November posting. This school treats every single student wonderfully. The school does not allow bullying at all. The school just doesn't put up with it. For that I'm thankful. Our previous school had so much bullying in it that my children came home afraid every day. Now my kids come home happy. Thanks Redwood!

    I remember struggling with where to send our son to school for kindergarten. There were many things for us to consider. This is now our son's second year and we could not be happier! Our son loves school!! Redwood has a family atmosphere that is refreshing. Everyone knows and looks out for one another. Every student that we have seen walks with their head up and with an air of confidence not normally seen. This is something that you cannot measure by test scores. The teachers are outstanding!! They are very good at working with the individual student. This is why Redwood is now a Performing Plus school. What more could you ask for in a school?

    What a great school. I love the high parental involvement and the many great teachers. It's great to have a school so close by that maintains that small town feel. The student to teacher ratio is wonderful. I couldn't have found a better school that fits both me as a involved parent and my child.

    This school has helped my children out of their shells. My son hates public schools. I also have a high school student and her class is great. She loves it and the small class size. My son's class has 12 kids vs. public 33 kids. See another eason charters are better. More one on one with the kids.

    My child started at the bottom of his class and with in a year was at the top. This really is a good school. Small and homey feeling. They make you feel like family there.

    I continue to be impressed with how well my boy are progressing at this school. Reading Math Writing Social Skills and Science. I would like to see more extracurricular activities like music. Good parental support from other parents for fund raising activities and for making Redwood a fun place to learn. Most other students are respectfull. Love the uniform idea. Would like to see a bigger more traditional campus. 1st 2nd and 3rd grade teacher are golden apple aware winners. I have yet to regret a day that my children are students at Redwood. Great School!

    Redwood is like a family - small but caring. The teachers are committed to their students and their safety. The school has good communication with parents. High standards are expected. They teach character through poems and songs during flag raising each morning. Kids are encouraged to do their best and to keep learning.

    This school has undergone some leadership changes and is still changing. Changes come slowly for this school. While the teachers are good some exxcellent there are no extra curricular activities available and parental involvement is limited to the parents working at the school.
