    Overall Experience: The JROTC program is the best! The cadets on the teams are like a second family. Most people at the school are extremely nice and accepting.

    Overall Experience: From the first moment I walked through the halls of Ravenwood the first day of freshmen year to my last first day of high school, I can honestly say I have loved every moment of high school. Ravenwood always has a positive vibe and motivates its students to work hard. The Athletics, teachers, students, and administration have made my high school experience one to never forget. This school has made so many lasting memories and I'm sad to see it all coming to an end. Would I do it all over again if I could? The answer is 100% yes. Ravenwood will forever be my home. #G2BARR forever

    Overall Experience: I've had a wonderful three years at Ravenwood. Looking back at these years, I've realized how many strong relationships I have built throughout the years with not only the students but the teachers and staff members. Like many students, I also went through the struggle of late nights of hard work trying to polish up essays and other assignments (which is why I rated only four circles). But the hard work is definitely not a bad thing as it challenges students and teaches then many new things as they prevail through it all. There are many culturally diverse schools, but it is one characteristic that makes Ravenwood so unique. Ravenwood is also unique because of the student body. The student body is so engaged in school activities, it makes everyone feel at home. If I had the option, I think I would not choose this school again. I, personally like to explore new places and experience different situations, but I would strongly recommend it to others.
