Overall, Ravenswood High is a good school. Most teachers are fantastic at their job by keeping their students engaged and their interest piqued. Though Ravenswood does not have a racially diversity, we are taught to accept everyone. I hope future generations will enjoy this school as much as I did.
Ravenswood High gives a very laid back environment. The people there want you to graduate, but in my experience they do not have enough challenging classes or people to push you be you best academic self. The teachers are either great or horrible. Math department is very lacking in some grades, and you may require a tutor to get the PROMISE.
My school is very unique I'd say it's not the best but also not the worse. To be honest I'd say that our school would be 1000x better if we had more funding for space, clubs, and extracurricular activities. We have a very good English and Sci department all around. However, I'd say we're lacking in our Math department and our Florigen language department isn't even a thing even though it's so crucial to have and when we do have it it's only for Spanish and doesn't add other options such as "French, German, Mandarin, Greek, or etc"
I'm a junior this year and this school has been nothing but supportive. Whenever I needed help with my school work, the teachers helped me to the best of their ability and helped me pass.
Ravenswood High School is overall a great school. The teachers are very nice and you know everyone. One thing I would like to see change is how teachers prepare you for ACT and SAT.
Ravenswood High School helps a lot of children if they need the help. I have learn a lot from this school since 9th grade.
I'm on my fourth year at Ravenswood High School and there has been many, shall we say, obstacles. If I could describe my high school experience here in one word it would be adaptation. The entire faculty even went out of their way to get t-shirts made that said "Adapt, overcome, improvise!", and wore them on the first day of school the year the construction began. We may have not had ceilings for nearly an entire school year (I'm not kidding!), but it is still a great school. Construction on the new middle school, which was to be connected to the high school, began my sophomore year and wasn't completed until the beginning of my senior year. Let's just say the construction really inconvenienced our everyday lives. During this time, it was completely normal to see bulldozers and excavators out the window, hear power drills and construction workers stomp on the roof, and feel the entire school shake when they chopped down large oak trees.
I like how the teachers are there when you need help. The teachers there will go out of their way to help their students, most of the time. I think the mental health of students and their well being should be taken care of.
My experience at Ravenswood High School was one that I wish most students had tbe opportunity to have. Most kids dread going to school, but Ravenswood offers a very friendly and caring atmosphere and each teacher will take one on one time with you if necessary. The teachers really care for the students and strive for success! Many AP and dual credit options are available as well. Many Athletics and musical activities are also available for students to participate in. Overall, good teachers, many things to get involved with, and just an over great atmosphere to get an education.
I’ve just entered my senior year of high school. I know that this is a very important year. I have a lot of decisions to make and not much time to make them. These decisions will either make or break my life, and I want to make sure that I make them to the best of my ability because there is no turning back. Ravenswood High School's excellent curriculum and teachers have well prepared me for college.
Ravenswood is an alright school. I would never suggest it to anyone. It's very close minded and bland.
The teachers seem to have an agenda. Have issues with teachers pushing liberal ideas into kids and bullying or shaming them if they didn’t have the same political or social ideas.
Worst school, uneducated and poor school. No diversity or culture anyway. Drug epidemic is at its worse. And the staff of the school take no responsibility for their actions whatsoever, they would blame a student before excepting blame. Bullying and segregation are horrible. Students are just passed through instead of being pushed to their potential. Forget the staff caring about students unless they are apart of a click.
My experience here has been fair and I like the classes offered. I would like to see things in the student body change!
Attending Ravenswood High School was the best 4 years of my life. I had the best teachers you could ask for who know how to build a relationship with their students. Even though my junior and senior year have been chaotic with the construction of a new middle school next door, our school has made sure that we have had the best time we can under those circumstances.
Ravenswood High School is an excellent public school in Jackson County, surrounded by an extremely dedicated and supportive community. It's not perfect, but nothing is, and what it lacks it more than makes up for with incredible staff and students. Ravenswood High is constantly striving to improve its resources, its academics and other extracurriculars, and its students.
The school is OK, I got a good education there. Though some of the teachers aren't the best and they slide some kids through. Kids that have learning problems don't really get the help they sometimes need. The administration has since gotten better with the retirement of the principle and the vice principle taking over.
