If I am being completely honest Raritan High School has been a very poor school. To be completely honest, the teachers are nice people, but when in a classroom they become completely different people. They teach and expect their students to learn the material in one sitting. If they don't then it's up to the students to come after school for more help. This may be a problem for some children because of after-school activities. Besides that Raritan can be a very nice school too, in fact, most of the teachers are very caring. They are fun and treat their students with respect. They value our ideas, thoughts, and opinions.

The teachers at Raritan High School really care about the students, however there are things being focused on more than the students at times. Where the school cold be finding more for the students they are actually funding to do things such as paint. The students at Raritan high school painting amazing murals all over the school that took these students months and just within a month of the new principle the murals were painted over. what was once comfortable warm learning environment has transformed into a cold place.
I believe that the overall district could be run better in terms of budget use and student resources. Specifically pertaining to Raritan however, many of the things the school purchases are not used or even noticed. For instance there has been a waterfall added to one of the courtyards, of which there are three, however no students are allowed to utilize two of the courtyards rendering the waterfall useless and a waste of money. Raritan buys a lot of things that make it a nice looking school but most of those things serve no valuable purpose to the students.
