    Overall Experience: At this school, I've enjoyed my experience here, especially in the arts department. Even though the funding for the department isn't a lot, I've been given many opportunities to be involved within it and outside of it in extracurricular arts programs. My band director and my choir teacher have made me into the person I am today and have been very effective in my life.

    Teachers: The teachers at Ravenwood, particularly the in the arts department, are engaging. They are truly interested the students' progress and their learning capabilities. They try and teach in a way where everyone can understand the material being presented and keep the majority of the population engaged in the material. The consistency of grading is the same across many of the departments of Ravenwood. It's a great school and a great learning environment.

    Health & Safety: Safety is taken very safety at our school, and any breaches to student safety are not tolerated. In addition, the health programs and nurses are excellent, and will always find a way to get what you need. Bullying is extremely rare, and I have not seen even one instance of it throughout my 3 years of being a student here.
