For some it may have been a dream come true. For others it may have meant a chance to make a great impression on colleges and future employers. However I loved my experience of being a Ramsay Ram for many deeper reasons. High school is a coming of age ritual that will serve as a marker between a teen and a young adult however being apart of that process at Ramsay High School has helped me build a stable foundation due to the International Baccalaureate Middle Years program. I developed in many areas and aspects that would determine my success as a rising freshman in college. My high school instilled in me the idea that success is an obligation and my success will become inspiration. I will be turning eighteen January fifth and will be able to say that I was very privileged to experience the learning environment at Ramsay High School. My school did an excellent job of grooming me into a virtuous and equally ambitious young women with values, goals, and the raw will succeed.

I love how Ramsay gives every student the opportunity to succeed. No matter what we as student do they allow us to be ourselves and succeed in everything we do. From Sports to academics Ramsay high school is an amazing school and a great college preparatory school. Ramsay has prepared me for college these past 3 years and I am glad to say I will for sure excel in whatever I do and where I go. They gave me the chance and resources to be all I wanted to be along with who I should be a as a young lady. Parenting, Career prep, and computer tech. Classes have given me an outstanding amount of pathways to take and I am very grateful to say I attend Ramsay High school.
My first two years at Ramsay High school were unique to me. Having come from a private school system it was a definite change of culture and social environments. After my first two years, things did change for me and eventually got better. Being at Ramsay High School allowed me to be in contact with various types of people and develop certain people skills that I use even now. I overall enjoyed my experience at Ramsay High School and found it to be beneficial being there. There were moments and times when the school was a mess or things were out of order but overall Ramsay helped me build my character. I would like to see change in Ramsay such as its academic approach but if I were to change too much then it would not the place were I was able to find pieces of myself that I did not know were there before. That what Ramsay High School does, it helps you develop yourself but leaves you with the freedom to choose so for yourself.
