The PTO at Ravenwood High school is absolutely outstanding! Our PTO president (Janine Hopkins) is organized, energized, passionate, a hard worker and great fundraiser! They keep the school running and working to obtain the school's best. The parents are very engaged in all areas of the school and we have plenty of volunteers, but there is no pressure in feeling that you have to volunteer.

In some extra-curricular areas, such as theatre, there seems to be a favoritism of kids whose parents often volunteer, but that is probably due more to the fact it is not greatly supported by the school. There are also a couple of parents who are overly involved and hurt their children's education and morphing there child's idea of how the real world is by trying to make special exceptions for their child, but for the most part the parents are great and are striving to better all of the students education.

There is something for everyone! From remote control car club, Lego club, to student council! Whether you're quiet and reserved or outspoken and outgoing you'll find a place that you fit in. The clubs and organizations are what the students make them because most are student led with teacher sponsorship! You can be involved a lot or a little depending upon your schedule. There is lots of school spirit, therefore sports are a very central part of student life whether you play or just watch. The variety of activities at the school making it easy for everyone to get involved in something they love. I personally adore helping others, so I applied to the Freshmen Mentor Program. It became a huge part of my life my junior and senior year. I got to plan freshmen orientation, run orientation, and visit freshmen home rooms every week to help the newest members of the high school acclimate. Of course there are activities that require less involvement and less out of school work. Most clubs meet in the mornings and try to limit activities to right before the school day or during the school day. However, sports and other organizations require extra work out of school or their competitions may be on weekends, etc.

Like I've said before I love the school for the variety of activities, great teachers who are very involved, and high achieving students. However, because of the area it's located in some of the parents can be a little overbearing on their kids and inappropriate in where they lay their blame for their child's bad grades. Also, some students can be clique-y and exclusive. But, there are also lots of students that are very kind and inclusive of everyone. The school spirit make sporting events and pep rallys extremely fun! The academic atmosphere is very competitive, which stimulates growth (at least for me, a very competitive person).
