Have two boys that are students at Ravenscroft. The teachers are amazing! The academic curriculum is advanced and has set them up well to pursue the AP courses of their interest and that are attractive to colleges. The emphasis Ravenscroft has on citizenship, specifically citizen leadership, has shaped the boys into young men that think about making positive changes to benefit others...and expanding their thinking to a global level.

9-12 Culture: There are very distinct social classes at RVC, certain groups are clearly being favored over others. Honors and rewards appear to be handed out to a very select group of students with some exceptions here and there. The narcotics culture is also very present

Diversity: Certain racial groups occupy defined spaces in the building. Diversity events such as SPEAK often leave one side of the spectrum in a sense of anger and resentment. Some students refuse to attend events which celebrate diversity, let alone talk to the African American Counselor in the Upper School

Administration: Students have been caught with drugs on campus, have been arrested for using them outside of school yet little action is taken against these individuals. Many students and parents agree the school is too lenient but little action seems to be taken

Food: Flik introduced healthy menus, however, the prices are outrageous: A cup of macaroni and cheese will cost you $4.50, compared to $3 a year ago
The school's college counseling program is phenomenal, and definitely aids students in finding out where they will fit best. However, the administration is overly strict and suffocating, and the school's homework load is often way more than it needs to be for a high school curriculum. Most of the teachers are passionate about helping their students succeed and are available for help outside of class, and there are many extracurricular activities representing a variety of interests. However, the administration often treats high schoolers like children instead of adults, and gets involved in outside-of-school life that has no effect on a student's academic experience, which grants my negative rating. Academically, the school will definitely prepare kids for college, but socially, it stunts growth.
