    "One's academic experience really depends on the teacher teaching the course. For example, I was horrendous at chemistry, but my teacher really improved my experience, whereas English has always been one of my stronger areas, but my teacher junior year made it miserable, and one of my most hated classes. The curriculum is outdated, but RHS is currently revamping its English department, so we are in the process of gearing towards 21st century learning."

    "The social scene at Ramsey is very cliquey; these students have known each other, and have been classmates since they were in Pre-K or kindergarten. If you are new, it is extremely difficult to make friends, and easy to feel lonely. The only way to really get involved in your school and community here is through sports. Ramsey High fully supports its athletics teams and athletes, usually at the expense of more academic, especially creative, fields. Even within sports, the funding and favor usually goes to the boys' hockey, football, baseball, and basketball teams, over girl's field hockey, soccer, and softball. To be a "ram," in the true sense of the word, is to be an athlete, not a just a student. If my school could bring equal importance to the arts as it did for sports, I think I would have enjoyed my time here more. As for organized school events, Ramsey does a great job with this. Some events we host include: Homecoming dance, Prom, various theater productions, jazz concerts, senior picnic, and project graduation. I don't think my school has ever poorly planned an event for its students, especially its seniors, which I am really happy with."

    "The teachers at Ramsey are probably the best benefit of attending this school, especially if you are on the honors track. I have found that most teachers are more engaged with their higher level classes and students, because they feel these students are more likely to be interested in, and apply the material outside of the classroom. Therefore, it is most likely to find a motivated honors student over a motivated CP student. I feel teachers could do more to encourage all students to be motivated to learn, no matter their ranking or level. All teachers at Ramsey, with the exception of some veteran staff, are always willing to work with you, and are compassionate about the heavy workload and sports activities that come with high school."

    "There are very few minorities at this school, and there have been incidents of intolerance in the past, although extremely rare."

    "There's basically no diversity ethnically, because it's Ramsey. Mostly white, with less Asian and Spanish people. It's not usually an issue, but some people are just obnoxious. Sexual orientation is more diverse; I know a lot of people who identify as gay, lesbian, trans. Peer pressure is a thing with drugs and alcohol, but it's not a big deal if you're not into it. When people offer you drugs or alcohol, they're trying to be nice and polite by sharing. They don't actually want to waste their resources and money on you if you don't want it."
