    Student Culture & Diversity: The school is about 65% white, 25% asian, 7% black, 2% hispanic. Approximately. There's multicultural week which is the highlight of the entire year and its where people from each continent/area/region come in and share clothes, food, and other things from their culture. That leads up to the multicultural assembly and its really fun. That is pretty much it.

    Academics: You have to take four years of math which doesnt make sense for people who started taking high school math in 7th grade. So it was really annoying for me to end up with 6 credits of math when i could have taken classes that I would actually benefit from. I will never do anything with calculus but yet I have the credit. Scheduling is a mess in general, especially with people in choir, orchestra, and band, because those classes are based on skill level but some people are put in a lower level class than they deserve just because of scheduling conflicts. Also this year a music theory class was in an english class which was convenient for zero people AND it was because the orchestra was stuck in the choir roo during that period. The workload is ridiculous especially with the busy work tht doesnt matter.

    Health & Safety: The nurse is scary but intink thats just because theres too many people. But generally I feel safe at school.

    Extracurriculars: There is not enough space for all the clubs that people want to happen, and the process of creating an official club is really difficult. But there is a good variety of clubs that do exist.

    Overall Experience: The education is generally high quality I guess as far as resources and stuff, but the main motivation of the administration is to get the top scores and be the best in everything, which breeds a culture of AP-shaming (meaning shaming people if they don't take a certain amount of AP or if they take a class thats honors or standard instead of AP) and people feel excessive pressure to succeed in tests rather than enjoy learning and gaining enriching knowledge. This also seeps into sports, as sports are held in high esteem here at Ravenwood and gets a lot more support than the arts. Another thing is that at least 30% of the teachers don't stay at Ravenwood for longer than a year, which is problematic because it causes the learning curve that occurs between students and teachers at a school to be every single year.
