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.
Raisbeck Aviation High School (RAHS) is the best high school in the state by far, and one of the best in the nation. Unlike any other school in the nation, RAHS was built and is primarily funded by Alaska Airlines, Boeing, and the Museum of Flight. Having such close ties to top performing companies in their respected industries creates truly unique opportunities. Representatives from Purdue and Embry Riddle aeronautical universities gave presentations in one of my classes. Embry Riddle offered RAHS students the unique opportunity of a completely funded tour of their school. Purdue even sent the head of their school of aeronautics and astronautics. As far as internships go, I recall multiple students landing internships with renown Blue Origin and NASA. While I could continue forever, the highlights of my review are RAHS is arguably one of the top fifty high schools in the country given its extremely unique opportunities, unbeatable staff, and strongly bonded student body.
RAHS is a small, STEM focused high school that prides itself in preparing their students for college. From the first day of freshmen year to the last day of senior year, the teachers and staff will support you and push your intellectual capabilities, doing anything and everything they can to make sure you are prepared for the real world. Teacher genuinely care about their students and want them to be successful, many offer extra help for anyone who needs it; before and after school or during lunch. The only downside to the school is the size; with only about 100 kids per grade the school itself is small and very specialized, meaning that there isn't room for a gymnasium, sports teams or field space because of its close proximity to Boeing Field and the museum of flight being right next door. That being said, students can still play sports at their resident high school that they would have attended, had they not applied and been accepted to RAHS.
