Welcome Students & Families

to the 2023-24 School Year

In partnership with the PTSA and administration team, we were thrilled to kick off the new school year at last Friday's Freshman Orientation with smoothies generously donated by RHSF Community Partner, Jamba

We are excited to welcome all new and returning students back to campus and are looking forward to co-hosting Friday's Welcome Coffee with the PTSA. Join us at the the outdoor amphitheater on Friday, August 25, at 8:45 a.m. where you will have a chance to meet other parents as well as Principal Barnaby Payne.

A Message from Our President

Redwood High School consistently ranks at the top of public and private schools, locally and nationally, because of the high quality of education and experiences our students receive. As a vital partner and the primary fundraising source for Redwood, the Redwood High School Foundation (RHSF) works collaboratively to provide critical resources that make our school exceptional and meet the immediate needs of students and faculty.

Ninety percent of our funding comes directly from our parent community through our Annual Family Giving Campaign. Our goal is 100% participation. YOUR donation directly impacts the funding of high quality programs, supplies, equipment and activities our students enjoy and rely on! 

Coming soon to your mailbox will be more information on how YOU can support RHS! Meanwhile, please visit our website to learn more, or email me at president@redwoodhsfoundation.org.

Thank you!
