Rains Independent School District Reviews

8 reviews

A school lead by a Christian principal, there is a heavy religious bias that would be expected of a Christian private school, except with public school funding. If it's discovered that you are an atheist and liberal, you can expect that the rules will be strictly enforced on you while your conservative Christian classmate's rule breaking is ignored. The teachers may even harass you to the point that you drop out because they know they can get away with it.
Of course, Don't Pass, Don't Play applies. However, the coaches are the teachers and they will often pass those students because we are a 'football school'.
The Arts Programs grasp at straws looking for pennies to pay for supplies, often raising their own funds, while the sports programs get new uniforms near annually.
All in all, the school has potential but needs to get new leadership and its priorities straight.

My main issue with Rains is a lack of care from admin about the bullying problem. I've seen many cases of harassment and despite the complaints, nothing was ever done.
I like how familiar and easy things could be, but the teachers were hardly extraordinary. A lot of the teachers were simply there for a paycheck and things never got worse, but they never seemed to improve either.
