We are considering a relocation to Marin County. We have two teenagers and are therefore interested in the local public high schools, specifically Redwood High School in Larkspur. Transferring a teen to a new high school can be hard a hard adjustment. Online I've read mixed parent/student reviews about the school. Negative reviews include comments about how the "academically average" child slips through the cracks because there is a big focus on the honors kids; some say it's a big party school (alcohol and drugs); some say it is full of spoiled, rich kids; and some say the cliques are so tight a transfer student feels like an outsider. Positive reviews include comments about how much the teachers care; how there are so many opportunities students can find their niche; and how well it prepares students for college. I realize there will be opinions on both sides of the equation. Overall, what has been your experience or your opinion?
