For the average student, Ray High School is an okay place to attend. If you're looking to excel in academics you do have the option of entering the IB program but it is very rigorous and can leave you isolated from the rest of the student body if you do not engage in other school activities. During my time there the administration was not very helpful and would often show favoritism to the students from more well-off families
The students at W.B. Ray high school are diverse and all very cool. The staff can be improved but that is basically everywhere. Some teachers will prioritize their kids and their grades and others are just there for attendance. The college and career center was a huge help all four years of high school. Mostly all of my teachers helped guided me and shaped me into the person I am today.
Ray High School has an IB/GT program (International Baccalaureate/Gifted & Talented) that prepares us for college. The teachers at this school are very patient and helpful considering how difficult some of my classes are. I am in the IB/GT program and intend to graduate with an IB diploma as well as my high school diploma.
My experience was right between amazing and the feeling of disappointment. I made many friends there these past three years and had space to grow or rather learn who I want to be as a person. Many other students were welcoming and kind, some felt like you have known them for years. They made the high school experience worth the struggle. There is a weak point for me though, the administrators. They don't really seem to care as much as others would think, there are some great counselors and staff but they are rare to find. Some staff made me feel a bit rushed about the future as if it all depended on that one day. I would like to see more concern and care from the staff in the future.
Ray is a well known school and lots of people love it , although I think if the people who graduated were to go back during a school day and check it out I think they would see a lot of change that they would not like .
I have had a great experience with niche though I haven't received any notice about any scholarships yet I am still hopeful. I would recommend this website as many people as possible.
I like how Ray has the IB program to challenge the upper-level kids. However, I would like to see some improvements towards the competitiveness of their sports teams.
I enjoyed IB at my high school. I felt like that was the only thing that really helped prepare me for college.
I am a junior at ray and I love going there. I am in the International Baccalaureate program RHS and it has helped to get me ready for college in some ways. in the program I didn't feel like we were pushed very hard and the teachers would get off topic during class and we would not learn all we needed to. However keep in mind this is only some of the teachers. When I tried to get out of IB this year so that I can get some of my hours out of the way for college but counselors where not very helpful. But other than the academics, RHS has the best pep rallies and everyone shows a lot of school spirit at them.
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.
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!
I’ve been going to Ray for 4 years now, graduate in 3 months and everything’s been great. Only thing I’d fix would be more personal help with students, because no one listens to announcements, so as they’re speaking, all the students over speaking over them therefore I can’t hear anything.
My kid is a Junior this year and I like that they offer help on selecting colleges and how to receive financial help. Also has him interested in looking into different colleges that he would not other wise know about. The school keeps them safe and they offer several electives to keep everyone interested and participate.
I have been here all 4 year of my high school career and have had a good experience. The teachers and students are nice and it provides a good education. Although the school is a little old, don’t let its looks deceive because it’s really good.
Great school! Everyone is so nice! I love the teachers and the staff. Everyone is so caring. Teacher help students when needed. Staff is always there when you want to talk. They care.
Ray high school is an IB integrated school, unlike any other high school in Corpus Christi. IB students and non-IB students alike can attend this school. The community is helpful and the staff are relatively professional. The school has multiple extracurricular opportunities to enrich students' lives.
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.
