I have had a great experience at Raytown High. Luckily, I have had many of the great teachers who actually care about us students and show it daily. I have participated in several activities in our school including volleyball, softball, basketball, and student council, and once you join activities or clubs like these, you find students with the passions and build amazing relationships with them and the coaches. When you find the right crowds, you really get to see how many positives there are with our school, rather than just looking at what could be changed.

It's a pretty good school. Most of the teachers seem to actually care about their students and enjoy their jobs (on most days, anyways). There's so many extracurricular activities to choose from. I doubt you could do every after school activity offered in all four years of high school. There's something for everyone, both through extracurricular activities and classes. There are so many classes to choose from. The classes can be dull, but they can also be interesting. It's fairly diverse (racially). However, the students are... a lot to deal with. Naturally, there are some who don't care/don't want to be there and are disruptive. We could use some more funding; the building is old and cracked in some places. Test scores could use some work, but once again, more funding would be useful. But it's a good school overall.
Raytown High School has a strong community built on individuals invested in developing intellect, community service and creating a strong sense of family. Largely diverse, Raytown High School has many clubs that suit each individuals desires. Teachers focus on each individual student to prepare them for college level courses. The school is extremely safe, staff are always prepared to take down a potentially dangerous situation. Parent involvement is high, creating their own clubs to help out with sports and other clubs. The culture of Raytown High is extremely welcoming and everyone feels a sense of family with one another.
