    "My high school is so great. The discipline is very strong when certain occasions arise, but when students are goofing off during a break time or around the halls, the teachers are pretty lenient, as long as all of the students are enjoying themselves and nobody is getting hurt. My favorite experience at the school is when a friend of mine pulls out her speaker and blasts music around the halls that everyone knows and people sing and dance or even just smile. I notice that peoples moods are brightened almost immediately and even the staff seem to enjoy it. What makes this school unique is how small it is, my senior class has 72 seniors in it, and everyone knows everyone inside the school. I've noticed that this year I barely know the names of any freshman, which is extremely strange after being able to name every kid by heart, and having known them personally, not just of them. I would definitely choose this school again just for how friendly everyone is and you are getting a genuine education."

    "The teachers at Rainier Senior High School are just amazing. I could not see myself ever learning from anyone better for my learning ability. They are always friendly and willing to help, not only when it comes to education but when you are struggling with other things they are fast to notice and help you through it. The teaching styles differ from teacher to teacher, like learning styles differ from student to student. Most teachers will try other teaching styles when it seems like they aren't reaching a student and they never give up. When a teacher doesn't know something to do with their subject they are quick to research and ask questions of other teachers to educate themselves, to also put in more information for their students. Almost all of the grading gets done over night or by the end of the week. There is never a time you need to wait more than a week to know your grade."
