Open Quote Regrettably, I have to agree with the parent who posted in 2010. I just graduated from Red Oak and have seen firsthand the rampant bullying of certain students. Disciplinary problems have increased and just like the bullying issue, school administrators aren't doing enough to get the situation under control. Punishments are selectively handed out. I've witnessed popular students receive a 'slap on the wrist' for conduct violations while a less popular 'outcast' was suspended for the same offense. I'm lucky enough to have parents who wanted me to be college-ready by graduation, so they paid for me to take additional courses after school. There are a few good teachers here, so I gave the school a two star rating instead of one, but academics are below average. I'm glad I don't have to go to this school anymore. Close Quote

Open Quote As a student of Red Oak High School I know what goes on there every day. I have been in the Red Oak School district for 13 years and would not want to go anywhere else. The teachers and administration truly care about the students and always have their best interest in mind. They will work with students as long as the student needs to to be successful. This year we have a brand new building and it is amazing. It is another example of the administration having the student's best interest in mind. Along with the new building, many new program's have been established at our high school including show choir and the Rachel's Challenge program. As far as the student body goes everyone tends to get along very well. There is very little if any bullying. Being high school there are always some problems, but compared to other schools ours are minor. All of our extra-curricular activities excel. From sports teams to Academic UIL to choir and band, all of ROHS's activities are very successful. I highly recommend Red Oak High School to anybody looking for a new school. We would love to have you! Close Quote

Open Quote Parents, avoid this school at all costs. The quality of education has deteriorated in recent years and continues to go downhill. Parent/teacher communication is poor. The curriculum is weak and needs to be more rigorous. This year, my daughter has was bullied by a particular 'clique' of girls. She maintained her composure in the face of frequent name-calling and insults, only to come home and cry her eyes out. She shouldn't have to go through this just to get an education. I ended up transferring her to another school in the area. I would not recommend this school to any parent looking for a 'good' high school. It is just awful. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
