The PTO at Ravenwood High school is absolutely outstanding! Our PTO president (Janine Hopkins) is organized, energized, passionate, a hard worker and great fundraiser! They keep the school running and working to obtain the school's best. The parents are very engaged in all areas of the school and we have plenty of volunteers, but there is no pressure in feeling that you have to volunteer.
In some extra-curricular areas, such as theatre, there seems to be a favoritism of kids whose parents often volunteer, but that is probably due more to the fact it is not greatly supported by the school. There are also a couple of parents who are overly involved and hurt their children's education and morphing there child's idea of how the real world is by trying to make special exceptions for their child, but for the most part the parents are great and are striving to better all of the students education.
