About This School
Alternative schools are public schools that offer nontraditional education for students whose needs cannot be met in a regular, special education, or vocational school. While alternative schools are distinct from regular, special education, and vocational schools in their teaching approach or classroom environment, they can provide similar services and/or curriculum for students. Alternative schools include schools for potential dropouts, residential treatment centers for substance abuse, schools for chronic truants, and schools for students with behavioral problems. See Redwood High School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Redwood High School Reviews
I attended this High School, and I can tell you that my experience here was like no other. I was one of the few lucky students who was rescued from dropping out of High School, thanks to Redwood High School Faculty and Staff members I know hold a High School Diploma. I am proud to say that I am an Alumni of Redwood High School, and soon I will be an Alumni of San Jose State University- 2012!! Will earn my Bacherlors of Arts in Pscyhology... Redwood rocks!
