Rainier School District Reviews

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.
Love this school! Huge impact on my life and was a great experience! The vibes on the small town and the relationships I've made with people are awesome. Everyone here is like my family for sure. And the sports team here are incredible. The staff is so awesome and will work with you independently and help you with anything you could ask for. Such a family oriented school and cool vibes. Love this place so much!
