Raisbeck Aviation High School Reviews

I've just finished my freshmen year at Raisbeck and am extremely satisfied with this school. Raisbeck is a project based learning and STEM education school. It's right next to the Museum of Flight from the class room students can see planes right out the window! There is currently a B-52 in our parking lot for the Museum of Flight's "Project Welcome Home." The curriculum is much different than any other school I've seen. Last summer and early fall, students build heat shields made to protect ice cubes from boiling water. We then made heat shields to withstand a Bunsen burner, micrometeorite impacts, and the impact from a fall off the third floor balcony. We then presented these heat shields to experts. Engaging projects like this are why I love this school, I look forward to the next three years I have here.

I really enjoy going to school at Raisbeck Aviation. The small environment allows me to get to know my teachers and peers on a more personal level, and the numerous clubs here help me create bonds and friendships. The courses offered are also rigorous and challenge me to think outside of the box. I like how there are many resources, opportunities, and people at school to help me succeed. Having us complete fine arts and sports credit helps us plan for the future. Being at this school has helped me be independent and work hard for what I want. If there was one thing I could add to the school, I would want more Advanced Placement classes such as AP Biology as well as a wider range of classes to be offered.
I enjoy going to school here. The environment is friendly and I feel like I fit in. Since this is a stem school, classes are based around math, science, and technology. Raisbeck lacks art classes and there's only one sports team here. We are required to have 1.5 Physical Education credits to graduate but we don't have a gym here so we have to make up those hours outside of school. Although the school is lacking in other activities, to make up for that we have a robotic team and I think it's pretty nice to have a sport that's related to stem. Another thing I like about the school is the community. Students are friendly to each other and the teachers care about their students and education.
