    Red Hook is known for high test scores and success of MOST students. Even students who received straight A's do not necessarily 'succeed'. I find it quite ironic that the topic of paying taxes is barely if at all taught when a lot of people that attend Red Hook High School will most likely continue to live in Red Hook their whole life and the taxes are ridiculous. One more complaint BUILD THE AUDITORIUM ALREADY! One of the only schools in the area without one and arguably the one that needs it most.

    Red Hook High School is filled with great teachers who genuinely care about their students. In response to the previous post there is a rather large art and music program. The music program is great and it always seems to bring in awards and honors for the abilities of the students involved. In regards to bullying there isn't a huge problem with the students. Of course there are occasional exceptions but compared to many other horror stories that I've heard about bullying problems in schools Red Hook doesn't seem to have a huge issue with this. There is a zero tolerance policy at the High School (or at least the was when I was there five years ago) in regard to bullying drugs alcohol etc. Any students involved in such activities are dealt with in a very serious manner. I had a great experience with this high school I learned a lot and I had a great time with the teachers and students!

    A lot of parents have posted reviews having to do with sports but I would like to know more about the school culture whether/how the arts are valued/incorporated into the curriculum if there is a lot of teaching to the test/pressure related to test scores and how the kids treat each other/if there is bullying and if so how it is dealt with by the adminstrators and teachers. Thanks for any info you can provide!

    I had to post a statement after reading the statements that have been posted about Red Hook's Athletics program. As far as only making a team if your part of the 'political crowd' that's absolutely ridiculous! My son has had no problem making it on Red Hook's athletic teams and I'm definately not part of any 'political crowd' or 'click' in Red Hook. None of his older siblings played on any teams for Red Hook either! He made the team based on his ability and nothing else. Re your child having to be an exceptional player to make a team in Red Hook Uh Hello...That's the way it's supposed to be! This isn't town Little League or CYO Basketball where everyone pays and everyone plays. Any student that wants it bad enough and practices on their own everyday to improve their game can make a team in Red Hook!

    Red Hook has a great school system and is very smart. The kids are extremely bright and the sports are exelling in excellence. The environment is very safe. The teachers are exceptional making the kids the best they can be. I can say this is the best school in the state.

    If you want your kids in sports you better be part of a click within the commnity or you had better be an exceptional player. Redhook only wants to win. There is no fun in playing with sports in this school. It is a very competitive group. So if you are looking for your child to play sports you had better start them in 1st grade with soccer and work your way up. Unfortunately we have found out the hard way and when your child like to play sports and be kicked down for not being apart of the click it really hurts.

    Red Hook High School is not a very good school. The District seems to spend money on unnecessary things instead of a auditorium which has been needed for a long time. As a student in this district i would not send my kids here.

    This is a great school small in size yet huge in offerings. It was ranked by Newsweek as one of the best high schools in the country. The number of Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate classes make it tops!

    Lack of communication between staff administration and parents make it very difficult for any student that may struggle the least little bit.

    I had an oppurtunity to attend Red Hook High school and it has grown to be very political not only with the teachers but with the students as well. They have an outstanding sports program but doesn't recognize the real talent. Most students are on teams because of previous family members or parents who attended and who are good friends with the coaches. On a scale of 1 - 10 I would rate Red Hook as a 4.

    One of the outstanding features of the Red Hook School District is the co-operation between the faculty and parents. The faculty takes an interest in your child. The athletics available to the students and after school activities are truly remarkable.
