    Red Oak High does provide lots of opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities. Unfortunately their academics are severely lacking. Red Oak High in no way prepares their students to succeed at the collegiate level

    Red Oak High School does a great job of providing many opportunities for students in terms of extra-curricular activities and career exploration. The teachers are creative caring and knowledgeable. There is a place for every student no matter their desires to find something to meet their needs at Red Oak.
