I loved my experience at Raleigh Charter High School! With its size of the school and classes, it is pretty easy to get to know the students and the teachers. I have built great relationships with my classmates from all different backgrounds and areas of interest, as well as my teachers from as far back as freshman year. The teachers are always willing to help and are excellent at what they do, especially those who make the class funny as well as informational. There are many different clubs and classes to fulfill interests despite the size. If i could change anything, it would be the amount of homework. Sometimes there is busy work or too much at once without being extremely helpful; I would like the amount of homework that would not overwhelm my life and help me learn what I need to learn outside of class.

My experience at Raleigh Charter was a pretty good one full of incredible learning moments and memories. Raleigh Charter fosters a challenging learning environment, and at times that environment was stressful. Raleigh Charter also encourages healthy competition between peers which makes sure that students work their hardest. The classes that Raleigh Charter offers are very relevant to everyone's career paths and the teachers teach comparatively to college professors. That collegiate style of teaching prepares students for the teaching style of college. I do wish that Raleigh Charter offered more AP classes, so that I could delve into college classes at an early age.
Great school. Really good teachers, very engaging and devoted to helping you learn. Good atmosphere, I felt very safe and welcome there. Food is very good. There is a lot of clubs and activities to be a part of. Many opportunities to join academic competitions in clubs. Overall a great school and people are very nice. Great school.
