Principal Shauna Ashmore
Redwood has been recognized as a 2017 Gold Ribbon School and 2013 California Distinguished School, attesting to our strong academic achievement and successful extracurricular programs. In addition to top marks in language arts, math and social science, our students consistently rank as County and State level science fair finalists. We maintain a strong focus on technology and currently have a 2:1 student to device ratio on campus, thereby aiding our students in unique content area exploration. Redwood students continually engage in a wide array of curriculum through digital literacy, collaboration, and problem-solving.
We promote character education throughout the year via monthly themes, quotes, and activities. Kindness and respect are expected and modeled daily, and our campus exudes a warm and inviting atmosphere where every student belongs. Leadership and inclusiveness are fostered at Redwood through multiple Associated Student Body (ASB) classes and the implementation of the Where Everybody Belongs (WEB) mentoring program designed to help new students transition successfully to middle school while connecting to the school community in positive ways.
Our unique and varied elective class offerings include, but are not limited to, art at all grade levels, bridge-building, creative writing, Introductory French, Life Skills/Home Economics, and technology. In the 8th grade year we are also proud to offer Chinese 1 and Spanish 1 as high school credit elective courses.
Redwood offers a multitude of performing arts classes and programs, all of which have earned high honors at local and regional competitions. We have four distinct levels of Band including a marching and parade program, while our Chorus and Strings Orchestra offer additional opportunities for students to engage in music education. More than 40% of our students participate in these wonderful extracurricular opportunities.
Parent involvement is valued at Redwood, and volunteer opportunities are available on a regular basis. Participation in School Site Council and PTSA are additional ways in which parents are encouraged to share perspectives and ideas on a variety of school topics.
