Advanced Placement tests: Decision maker of what college courses students may or may not have to take; seemingly synonymous with stress and anxiety. However, one particular teacher at Red Lion consistently does a good job of putting student’s minds at ease when it comes to the AP Calculus test.
Head of the math department and AP Calculus teacher, David Hively, has a highly commendable track record regarding the types of scores his students receive on the exam year after year.
On a scale from one to five, one being the worst and five being the best, any score above or including a three is considered passing. According to the Total Registration website, about 24.4% of students score a five, nationwide. 17.4% score and four and 17.6% score a three.
School guidance councilor Mrs. Kathy Moser, English teacher Mr. Robert Beatty, and learning support teacher Ms. Lori Strayer are all retiring at the close of the 2016-2017 school year. Each of them has been a valued member of Red Lion's staff and they all leave behind a unique story for the high school to remember them by.

First-generations are people who are the first in their family to grow up in the United States. They are a unique group of people who go into the world knowing very little, and have to adapt to several cultures and ways of living, at the same time.
