The school needs a new building or consistent expert repair and maintenance of the existing building. WE NEED MORE RESOURCES SUCH AS BOOKS, COMPUTERS AND SMART BOARDS. THE DISTRICT NEED TO BETTER PREPARE THE STUDENTS FOR EXAMS SUCH AS THE SAT/ACT, REGENTS AND FOR ENTRY TO COLLEGE.The school is over crowded with large class sizes that are not conducive to effective learning. The board should only have residents whose children attend the schools and not private yeshivas.
The sports, art and music programs should be reinstated and better after school support to students should be available. We are important and our parents pay hefty school taxes but our education is lacking. Our elected officials should endeavor to assist our school district in the Rockland county area of New YORK.

Ramapo High School has a wonderful faculty and staff, who work very well with students and parents. They are continuously helping to make improvements with academics and the facilities. For example, they recently installed solar panels in the front of the school and renovated the entire track/football field and bleachers this past year. I would like to see greater efforts in meal preparation and distribution given the shortened lunch periods.
Due to accessing grant money, the school is currently improving. However, there have been many budget cuts in the past. So extracurricular activities like art, music, and sports have greatly suffered. I believe this is why many students are apathetic to the school. They have a negative view of the school, which makes the overall experience worse. When there is effort put in, like in pep rallies and Science Olympiad, the Ramapo experience is like no other.
