My experience at W.B. Ray High School has been incredible. I transferred to Ray for my senior year of High School and I sincerely wish that I could've attended all four years. We have an International Baccalaureate program which is extraordinary and a variety of On Ramps classes with the University of Texas at Austin. The culture is so diverse at Ray, the counselors and the registrar office workers are so patient and friendly. The students are so welcoming and our student body has so much spirit! I'm so proud to be a fighting Texan! One thing I would like to see changed is having the theatre department renovated. The theatre hall is a bit outdated and could just use a bit of TLC! Other than that, I have no complaints!

Through the rigor of the International Baccalaureate program at Ray High School, I have been adequately prepared for college. However, the administration and the counselors are subpar. The counselors are incompetent and don't have the students best interests in mind. My peers and I have been called "lazy" and "dumbasses" by one of the counselors. They are more intimidating than helpful. The administration is equally detrimental to the student experience. The rules being enforced at the school are purposeless, outdated, or both. I have been scolded for not participating in the pledge of allegiance. I have been dress coded sheerly because of my unique fashionability. I have been written up for walking in the side entrance of the school. In most other ways, the school is satisfactory.
I love all the opportunities offered through not only sports, but student made clubs! The fine arts also plays a big part in my high school experience, because I am in band! They care so much about the fine arts department, from Theater to the Drill team.
