School of wow: How a team of forward thinking administrators reinvented century old Redondo Union High School
It’s 1:04 p.m. and 2pac’s “Changes” is playing over the public address system at Redondo Union High School. “It’s time for us as a people to start makin’ some changes,” the rapper urges. “Let’s change the way we eat, let’s change the way we live, and let’s change the way we treat each other.” The music can be heard from every corner of the 56-acre campus, alerting students they have one minute to get to their fifth period class. 2pac’s lyrics, intentional or not, represent the ethos that has come to define Redondo Union’s recent, meteoric ascent.
