My first year of high school experience was not in the best of circumstances. Online learning was difficult to transition to, because of Covid-19 I feel like a lot of experiences were stolen from me. Even though it wasn't the best I did learn something about myself through the process. Firstly, I have poor time management, secondly I get distracted easily. I had 2 B's and probably a C. And the C was in one of the most easiest classes band. I missed lot's of opportunities simply because I thought school was an option. I had better participation in classes I thought were important, and my grades weren't the best. I just could have done a lot more to improve over all. In the second trimester we did have the option to do in person learning, and having the teacher there and being in person made me more focused and I participated way more. This improved my grades leaving me with 6 A's and 1 b. I could have done better overall, but this was a good learning experience.
I’ve been at Raytown High School from Freshman year to now currently Senior year. The teachers and staff are very welcoming to Freshman and make sure to take care of their students and their needs for school and the counselors are also a very big help with trying to help students apply for colleges and scholarships and trying to set them up for the next or current school year. This school overall is really amazing. Anyone wanting to attend would definitely have a lot of fun but learn many things from all the teachers there.
It's not a bad school and honestly does not deserve a bad rep. The students and faculty are one of a kind and help fuel the culture there. Yes, they have their issues but no school is perfect if you intend on going here or putting your kids here just know you're gonna have to deal with some ups and downs. Yet the memories are wholesome the closer you get. Totally worth it if you ask me.
The first year of High School was very inviting of course, the students there are very lively and not all about themselves. The hallways however are usually packed and the flow of traffic is not very organized. The school spirit our school has is astounding and so amazing to watch. You feel like your school is the best with how hype and excited we get before games. My senior year currently is not how I thought it would look, but online is not as bad as it was when we started it at first. It is more organized than when they started online on a whim because nobody was prepared. Although online school is very hard to learn and stay engaged, I wish we would have gone back to school. Our school had a few renovations done to it that I saw driving by, they redid our field and parking lots that looks very nice and more inviting to students that are new and students that don't go to this school.
I like the opportunity you get to explore and experience different things. I like that it can be challenging sometimes with the classes you have.
I've been a student at Raytown High for 4 years now and it's been a great experience. With the occasion strict teacher, most of the teachers at Raytown care about your education and most importantly you. Raytown High is a very diverse school, Raytown itself is a someone diverse area. Without my time there, I might have seen myself turning out for the worst. The teachers there really want to have you succeed in life, they push us because they care about you. I'm always going to be thankful for my time at Raytown.
I attended Raytown High School all four years of high school (9-12). There was not a day that passed by that I did not enjoy waking up and looking forward to having such a great day at this school. From the amount of activities to be involved in to the teachers great teaching ethics this school was great. Throughout my years if attending this school, I had all of the resources that I needed from receiving an education to being counseled my senior year when applying fr colleges. The amount of support from administration and staff was out of this world. They were always big on pushing students to be their best. I personally feel that if it wasn't for the staff pushing me to be great and guiding me down the right path, I would not be on my 3rd year of college. To this day I still communicate with some of the staff because they are just that great. These are some of the people who have inspired me to want to pursue a career in education. All around I would rate my old high school 10/10!
My experience at Raytown was in one word fast, but I’ve also learned a lot with my 4 years of high school. It showed me how you have to be prepared for the real word, and time management.
The people at this school are amazing and so helpful to all the students attending. They care, make sure you stay on track and always push you to do better. It’s a very diverse school and it keeps your mind wide. They help prepare you for college in all and best ways they can. They give you all the respect they can offer. Overall they are a great school and they make you feel like home.
It’s a good school a lot of diversity, kids can be a bit rough at times but as long as you pay attention and focus you will succeed.
Raytown High school is full of diversity. Being a student at Raytown High School allows you to meet a variety of people who speak a multitude of languages. There are many programs for everyone depending on your interest. We have clubs ranging from chess club, video game club and even a gender alliance club. I personally enjoy going to this school for many reasons. Such as the different people I meet and the courses that are available. Like most students, school comes with challenges, for example the classes can be difficult and the teachers sometimes do give a lack of explaining. Overall the school is helpful to students as long as the student is interested in helping themselves.
I am currently in my senior year of high school at Raytown High and have had what I would consider to be an average experience. I have been at the school for my fourth and final year now and have been involved in many clubs and activities (theatre crew, math club, scholar bowl, color guard/ marching band, orchestra, and international club to name a few). The majority of the staff were friendly and helpful to my post-high school plans and helping me to the best of their ability. The school is very diverse, but lacks its own school culture. The school also went through a loss of one of their councilor due to a decrease in student enrollment numbers, leading to a shift in student to school relations. Students who had been going to the same councilor for the majority of their high school career were switched to a different one if they didn't fall in the range of "last names" the school was then forced to go by because of the loss of their fourth member (instead of going by grade level).
My experience at Raytown High School was a more or less experience. I loved how we usually got to choose what courses we got to take if we had the correct requirements. I did not like how some of the teachers taught. Some of them were careless and didn't really teach but would hand you loads of homework. i did not like all the staff changes especially if it affected students in a negatively way. I loved how they would have all of these extracurriculars that anyone could join because the school opened there arms to anyone.
I had just transferred last year and they were so welcoming and helpful with my transition into a bigger school!
What I love about Raytown is that everyone is accepted and loved. All the teachers and staff are supportive and truly love their jobs and students. It is very diverse and very school-spirited.
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.
There are a lot of cliques, which causes the culture to lack. Despite this, there are so many different types of people, so it is a great opportunity to learn about different lifestyles.
