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.

Everyone in our school is approachable and kind, and it's easy to find friends here. Also, almost every student is applied in their schoolwork - you would be hard pressed to find a student that isn't involved and studious.We also have excellent athletics - the best football team in the state last year! - and students are generally very involved in athletics here as well. There is also a lot of support for arts here, and the theater team puts together an amazing play/musical twice a year that blows everyone away every single time. Overall, it's an awesome school that has a place for everyone.

Most students are involved in an extra-curricular activity of some sort. Many students are involved sports (if not multiple sports), and if sports is not their area, then multiple clubs are available to get involved in. From fun clubs such as Harry Potter Club, Culinary Club, FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes), Thespian Society (for performance and theatre), and Logistics club, to academically involved clubs such as: Science Olympiad, History Bowl, English Honors Society, Mu-Alpha Theta (Math honors society), and Tri-M (music honors society), to outreach and service clubs: Music Outreach, Interact, Best Buddies, Habitat4Humanities, National Honors Society, and FMP (Freshman Mentor Program), to the clubs that prepare you for job fields such as: FCCLA (for fashion), Mock Trial (for lawyers), DECA (business and marketing), YIG and Model UN (for politics and government), and Theatre and Choir
