    Overall Experience: I love my school. Of course there are good and bad of every school, but at Ravenwood I think the goods outweigh the bad. I love how much school spirit there is and how supportive of our sports teams we are. The teachers are awesome and I will be sad when I graduate. I have met so many amazing people and Ravenwood has taught me many things. The school opened up so many opportunities for me and all the other students. I was very lucky to go to this school for my high school career.

    Overall Experience: Currently, this school is very overcrowded and when you are transitioning between each classes you're basically shoulder to shoulder and you'll end up bumping into a lot of people, which is unavoidable. However, with the new high school being built soon, those who live in Nolensville will transfer and that should reduce the population by the next school year. Also, students here are very competitive with grades, so there's lots of anxiousness around. But most of the teachers are very helpful and will do everything they can to try and help you, but it can get difficult sometimes since each teacher has around 130+ students. Overall, I'm pretty fortunate to be able to go here, however if I could change some things my experience will definitely be better.

Though the school is crowded at the moment new high schools are being built to address the overflow. The school has all it's needs met and can focus on the students educational needs.
