School Reviews

I'm constantly impressed by the quality of education that my children receive at Redwood Day School. It's hard to give just a brief overview of the school but this is a school where there are strong academics, a beautiful facility, and dedicated faculty and staff. My students are encouraged to stretch and grow. Diversity and inclusion are also part of the fabric of what the school is and is trying to be.
