Old Redford Academy - High School Reviews

By , a Parent on

I THINK ITS A GREAT SCHOOL I BEEN TRYING TO GET MY KIDA IN THERE FOR OVER A YEAR NOW OTHER THEN THAT ITS  A VERY GOOD SCHOOL

Reviewed on

I am very impressed with ORA-High School.  The students look PROFESSIONAL because their uniform (Blazer/Tie) enhances their appearance.  All of them look like future leaders.  I have noticed how people stare at my grandson when he is in public and many have made positive comments to me about his striking appearance.  I have noticed a profound maturity in him as he discusses his assignments.  He also attends weekly bible classes which also reinforces core values.  This school has captured the essence of the purpose for education not only academically, but also by enforcing their dress code and student conduct.

old redford academy ...... in my opinnion they are not that great. sometimes they lack in giving their students freedom of speech as well as with the parents. somewhere along the line the administration just lost it. they are all fascinated with the uniform and not really the students. whats going on??? the teachers i must say are excellent. they try their best with the resources they are given and they do a great job. personally i think if your child is not fully in compliance with following the rules and does not want to remain a individual ....send them to old redford academy
