I liked that there were a lot of clubs and sports to be involved in. The teachers seemed to care about their students.
I loves the morality of the school. Ravenna is very focused on bullying and mental health, and they want their students to graduate us much as we do. The things I would like to see improve is the classes and criteria, and weekly meetings. I understand they are trying to be very connected with their students but they need to allow their students to work and study for their future. The biggest thing I would like to see change is how the funding is split. Ravenna High School spends all of its funds on its sports, but they give very LITTLE funds to the choir and band classes, I don't believe that is fair. Not every student is focused on sports, and plus Music especially creating it and actively learning it is very beneficial for stimulating the mind allowing students to actually intake and understand more information.
The teachers are nice, and it’s never boring they’re always having fun assemblies and pep rally’s. They are great at choosing what class to put students in based on the educational level compared to that year they went to school. Bullying is rare and everyone gets along and fits in there’s no one with no friends everyone talks to anyone. They don’t let you give up and will keep pushing and helping you to not give up on your fate or goals. Ravenna High was great choice and a great school surrounded with happiness , I wouldn’t want to have went to high school anywhere else!
Ravenna is a sub-par school district. Some teachers really care but most are just there because its a job that pays. They don't care much about fine arts, acting, choir, or band. They have to fight for every penny they get, even though they can spend ridiculous amounts of money to keep our football field blue. The food is alright, and the cafeteria cooks seem to care more than the teachers. Most of the textbooks are from the 1990's and are broken down. On top of all of that, you learn no life skills. Ravenna doesn't prepare you for the real world. It's not surprising that they're ranked one of the worst schools in the state.
The teachers were engaging and truly interested in my goals and well being. I was able to be involved in many school clubs and activities, and participate in the college credit plus program.
I had good teachers who were dedicated to helping you learn and grow as an individual. They worked as hard as they could to give you their best effort, to help you succeed.
Better school lunches for the students, more time to get to class, nicer principals. Stop bullying/fighting.
I went to Ravenna High School for all four years of school. I do not think it has prepared me for college work, but i do believe that not most highschools do. I loved that atmosphere and being involved in the community!
The school has a free lunch program for all I which it serves healthy nutritional food. The school is a safe environment that has an officer patrolling around the school.
I liked the variety of clubs and sports that gave students a lot of options.
The teachers try to keep the students engaged and work with them to improve skills.
The school itself is very good and the teachers are adequate, however, the students around myself and others who want to go to college and succeed in life make our learning experience very difficult.
The teachers from this school do a very adequate job of teaching and being involved. However, the students make it hard for them to do their job because of their reluctance so only the student who are willing to accept the help from these teachers succeed.
I love Ravenna because they are so understanding.
If I could do it all over again, i wouldn't choose to go to this school. While there are a few good things about this school, including new technology and a large variety of electives, the overall experience wasn't good. The building wasn't in great condition, they had replaced all of the good teachers, and there were certain students that got special treatment which wasn't fair to the rest of the student body.
My individual experience at Ravenna High School was wonderful. Some parents complained often, but lacked involvement with their own child. I do understand afternoon shift parents cannot always participate. I would like the see Ravenna High School mandate one activity to every student outside academics. If I could do it all over, I would have preferred to stay in my IEP program my Senior year. Being tested and released from my IEP program at the end of my Junior year caused me to struggle and nearly fail English. I had a fantastic 12th grade English teacher, but it was so hard for me to accomplish book assignments, comprehend the literature and complete written assignments. I would have done better if I maintained my IEP program for that last year of high school. Thank you.
I feel that upon graduation from Ravenna High School, I did not understand how the real world would be. I started working when I was a sophomore (16) and really had no responsibilities until I started college. I became a manager at my job working 40+ hours while paying many bills on my own including a brand new car and going to school full time.
