Attending this school is the best thing I've ever done in my life. This school prepares you for college and life out in the real world. Excellent education program, hands-on experience. The teachers genuinely care. It has a vibrant community, a supportive learning environment, wonderful teachers, and a beautiful campus. Phenomenal teachers that are passionate about teaching. It is a phenomenal school that will prepare me for college. Overall, it's a great school. Everyone is super welcoming and approachable and if you ever feel yourself getting overwhelmed with any class, the teachers are super easy to talk to and willing to help.

Missed some of the biggest events hyped up by society. Everyone vapes. A trash can was set on fire at least once every year. 40% of the the teachers didn’t know what they were doing and 40% didn’t care, only about 20% actually cared about us succeeding, and even then they don’t get paid enough to care THAT much. My 11th grade English teacher got 2 week suspension for waving scissors in a kids face, every teacher hated her (even the counselors did), but they couldn’t get rid of her because she was on tenure (luckily she left before the next year). Staff doesn’t care, students don’t care, the system doesn’t care. Nobody cares.
In my current 3 years at Loch Raven High School, I can assuredly state that while it isn't an outstanding school that outshines others, it provides you with what you need in order to succeed and prepare for college and your future life in general. The main problem with this school is the deteriorating core of our school culture. Teachers seem to become more and more lazy, not withholding certain policies and generally caring less and less. This causes the students themselves to follow along with this theme and shifts the originally structured system, changing it into a more fluid school where administration, teachers, and students alike thinks of the whole school process as sort of an ignorance, while just trying to get it over with. I have no-doubt in my mind that this could change. We have exceptional brilliant-minded teachers, caring administration, and students that would be willing to put in the hard-work if directed in the right direction.
