1. The quality of academic programs at Red Hill is a B+. Often children at the lower end and the higher end of the spectrum are not given the attention they deserve. 2. The music, art and sports are an A+, including an award winning author, Pam Walker, as Director of Physical Education. 3. The facilities are pretty old and decaying. The main building is a sad looking 1970's cinderblock penitentiary and there are several "learning cottages" which are crummy old trailers. 4. There is a very exclusive group of rich parents that try to control the entire school along with a horrible micro-managing principal.
