Rainier School District has been the best school district I’ve ever been in, and I’ve been in about 4. They have an amazing staff who truly care about their students. The community is involved in everything and it’s like one big, happy family. I would give anything to go back and do it all again, just to feel that close, family-like love. The staff have shaped my life for the better, they’re so much more than just a teacher. They are mentors. They are friends. They are people who will drop everything and listen. They truly have the students’ best interest at heart. They are family.

The teachers are very educated and driven to help the students learn to accomplish their goals in life. The academics are well structured and the class options are just the right amount. Rainier offers a safe environment for the students, but that does not mean the students dont find a way to make destructive comments or actions towards others under the radar. Typical school district all round, but the staff have goals that are completely derived towards the success of the students.
I have been part of Rainier School District since my first day of kindergarten and from that day I know I was gonna love it here. I’ve learned how to make friends and appreciate my close friends. When you are part of small district you learn to love the little things. I actually really love it here and I don’t think I would wanna leave here.

If I had to change anything it would be nothing. I really don’t think our school district needs to change. It has wonderful teachers, great students, and resourceful stuff.
