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.

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.
My teachers have gone to amazing colleges and universities. Several teachers have various graduate degrees; it honestly baffles me that some of them are teaching high schoolers. Each teacher has just enough liberty to push students in a different way per class; teaching styles are not uniform, so students are continuously adapting learning strategies. Teachers are always available for tutorial, constantly get involved in student clubs, and attend student athletic games or weekend activities on their own time. They go to community service events with students. The administration is so close knit with the students; student groups can easily lobby for change and be heard by the teachers.
