    Health & Safety: I think the school is very safe. Although I hear about stories of what some students choose to do with their weekends, I have never witnessed any of it myself because my friends and I are nerds. We really get crazy while discussing issues described in Obama's State of the Union speech and what colleges we want to attend.

    Food: I acknowledge that it is still public school cafeteria food, but I highly enjoy it. I end up eating more at lunch than I do at dinner, and the lunch ladies are wonderful! I am not aware of any of the dietary accommodations simply because I have been fortunate enough to not need them. However, I am sure that the lunch staff accommodates.

    Administration & Policies: There are policies in place, for sure. That's the problem. The faculty sticks so closely to the policies that it ends up hindering students more than it helps them. Some of the policies are completely pointless and result in the opposite of flexibility. Sometimes, it feels like the faculty is on a different team than the students although we are all a part of the same school. Some faculty members in the administration department treat students horribly, and it has become such a habit that it carries over into their interactions with parents. The reason I did not give Ravenwood the lowest rating possible is because for every rude faculty member, there are three great faculty members.

    Sports & Fitness: Several students are very involved in the sports outside of school, but several students are not, so don't be worried if you aren't a big sports person, because there are several people like you. Fitness programs are great, during my time on the cross country team we had an instructor that works for the school. I noticed improvements in my times as a result. There have been incidents where Ravenwood students have vandalized other school's football stadiums, but that is the exception and not the norm.

    Teachers: Almost every single one of my teachers is amazing. I enjoy their classes and the life lessons they have to offer. Of course, I have had a few teachers who have been horrible towards students, but no institution is perfect, and every institution has "mean" teachers. With this understanding, I rated Ravenwood the highest.
