Ramsay High School Reviews
I love my school's authenticness and how the school is a second family for me. The school has some very impactful teachers who are more like counselors. You can go to these teachers about everything from school drama to family problems. Its always good as a teen, to be able to come to a responsible adult about a situation. These impactful teachers are the ones that life your head when it's down or give you a pat on the back when you need one. Although my school is what many may consider large we are a tight family. After the tragic death of a senior at my school, we all had each other's back through it all. When student's loved ones pass we as a school try to make it a mission to help each other emotionally. Being that we are an academic driven school we put our grades before anything else. The school spirit at my school is like no other! Our school supports each other in everything we do. Our bond is authentic, we all want to succeed!
Overall Ramsay is a good school. I would say the actual building and environment would be the poorest quality of the school. Ramsay is a historical landmark, and I’m fine with that, actually I think it’s pretty great. I don’t think the historic structure of this building is best for a quality learning experience the students deserve. Despite the antique classrooms, restrooms,and hallways, Ramsay offers a safe, welcoming,and loving learning environment.School spirit and pride is shown throughout both the students and faculty and staff. Ramsay‘s Number 1 goal and mission is to prepare students to succeed, exemplify college readiness,and be life long learners.
My high school career is one thing that I will never forget! The level of education was great in which we were challenged and exposed to new things. I loved the interactive experience with all of the extracurricular activities. On the other hand, I would change the food choices offered in the cafeteria to a more diverse selection.
