After studying and visiting schools in the Raleigh-Cary-Durham area, we find Ravenscroft to be, hands down, the very best. Challenging, engaging academics are a longstanding tradition at this 150-plus year old school. The Lead From Here threads that connect academics, character development, athletics and Fine Arts is just one of the school’s cutting edge initiatives. Academics are stellar, Fine Arts opportunities and excellence are unparalleled, athletics are of the highest level, and the personal touch of the school help each student and family know they are known, understood and called to be their very best.

Ravenscroft certainly did prepare me for college with their challenging courses. All faculty and staff are very enthusiastic about the course material at hand. They are are very attentive when it comes to a students success, and are willing to sit down and work with you at any point in time whether it is before school starts or even after school has ended. I would say that Ravenscroft has made several attempts to make their community as diverse as possible, but has failed numerous times when it comes to handling racially charged incidents.
I am not sure where the 9:1 student to teacher ratio comes from. My daughter has 19 students in her class with one teacher. It has always been close to 20 students per teacher.

The academic piece is strong but teacher oversight, soft skills, and teachable moments are almost non existent.

It feels like you get the outliers of the student behavior spectrum here. There are a lot of amazing, well behaved students. There are also a good number of entitled students who are left to do as they wish. They have a "let the children work out their own problems" philosophy.

If your child is gifted in any sense or just isn't socially in line with the norm there is no place for them here and they will be strictly unapologetic about that system.

We made a mistake and are now working on correcting our path.
