My son is finishing his 1st year at Red and is a kindergarten student. After being placed into the Vanguard program when he was tested for G/T I was really excited and happy to see his young mind being challenged.

Red is wonderful and the S.T.E.M. program is getting better every year. I have been a Red parent since 2007 and have been very happy overall. However, parent involvment overall could improve. No school is perfect but Red IS a great choice.

Red is a fine school. I am impressed with the principal and staff. The magnet program is excellent. I am especially impressed by the computer teacher and newly equipped lab. My child has an educational opportunity that can not be found at many school.

I am extremely happy with the new principal at Red. The whole atmosphere at the school seems much more up beat. The teachers have been and continue to be great. Now that they have a principal to back them I think things will be good.

The new principle, Ms. Randle has made some excellent changes to the school. She is very approachable and has high expectations for her students and her staff.

Red Elementary is a work in progress. We left a wonderful school to attend Red, 'our neighborhood school' so our children could be with kids in the area...that wasn't the case. The parent participation is very minimal. The good teachers are NOT the norm. Not sure how it is a math, science and technology ...  Read more
