My experience at Raines was definitely different from what I expected. I met many people that brought me out of my shell and taught me many lessons. Raines showed me how to deal with a variety of situations from multiple aspects due to it's particular environment. A big issue that should is how the schools values sports more than the students education. Students on our football team are more privileged than the rest of us, which i think is unfair. All students should be accounted for to meet up to the same educational standards no matter how good they are at sports.

My experience at William M. Raines was remarkable from the teachers ,administrators , and the students . One of the many things I like about the teachers at Raines is that they are dedicated to their jobs. Educators are student focused to ensure that each student is equipped with the necessary tools to help them succeed in life and are properly qualified to attend an institution of higher learning. The administrative team is always courteous and willing the help students to resolve issues that arise throughout the day, whether personal or conflicts that sometimes arise between students or teacher and students. One thing I would like to see change is the conflicts between students. Also there is need for more respect and school pride .
William M. Raines, the high school Harvard has helped me with becoming a better person and a man. It has taught me that in order to make it in life you will need a plan you can't allow life to take you instead you have to make it do what you want. Through hard times this school has always had a plan to make it through and overcome the obstacle. This school has been around since 1965 and has many great alumni and some alumni comes back or they donate time or money to the school. To be involved in the history of this school is mind-blowing to walk the same hallways as Hall of Famer Brian Dawkings is crazy. I am more than grateful to be a part of history.
