    This is a best school my kids have a lot of help the teachers are really helpfull with the kids I definally recommended.

    Wish I would have listened to friends & other parents that pulled their kids out of this HS. A self motivated kid will make it through lazy kids will fall through the cracks. I've emailed teachers who never returned an email back I've left messages to the principal or staff with the same results. I've had a counsler blame me for not logging on to the website to keep track of my kids grades. Sorry..is that MY job..really?? I may as well spend the day babysitting him at school then. Sat school??? If you think this is designed for your kid for make-up work think again..it all about re-couping the schools funding for the days your kid was absent. Montecito HS would have been a much better choice!

    The leadership with the principal and teachers is good at this school. Unfortunately a lot of kids are left to themselves and so they get into a lot of trouble in and outside of school.

    This school is just horrible and definitely an education mill; truly the fast food version of a school. The administration is rude calloused unhelpful and uncaring. In fairness there is one and only one person whom I've found to have human-like qualities the secretary in counseling. She is caring kind compassionate and professional. If you'd like a frustrating nightmare for your child's high school experience enroll them here. Otherwise stay clear.

    As a parent I am reading all what people have to say and I can tell you I agree with administrators they are out all the time and the principal is never in his office and you just don't see him. This is my second child going throw this program and I can tell you with teacher's having 50 plus kids in a class room it is really hard. I as a parent are on top of everything my kid has to get done. It just like I am back in school. For the most part if you as a parent are on top of things your kids will get throw if you are lazy you are in for it. You will get lost. Oh and yes there is a couple teacher's that are 'nuts' just watch and if your kid get in her class get them out. Don't wait.

    I just graduated in June 2009 and am entering the CSU system in the fall because this school prepared me for college. Out of the 24 teachers I had all but 2 were great and always willing to help when needed. As for the students you find good and bad anywhere but overall they were nice. I am proud to have been a RHS Bulldog

    My daughter has been going to the school for all 4 years. This school has been the worst for both her and I the teachers are there because they have to be. They don't treat all the students equaly and overal it was a bad school. The communicatin was not good at all. If you want to enter your child in this school i recomend you don't try to find a better school.

    My main contact has been with Assistant Administrator Mike Gallion. I am highly impressed with his balanced approach in evaluating and communicating with students and parents. He sees himself as serving the community. Not a typical 'Vice Principal' he applies his time efforts and concerns equally between delinquent or students at risk with productive and seemingly 'doing fine' students. All students have needs and concerns. Mike Gallion is very aware of this fact. Thank you for being their for our children Mike!

    Ramona High can only be described as adequate at best. The administrators don't give a hoot about the students as individuals.

    I didn't like Ramona High at all! It is over-populated the kids have bad values and the teacher have a don't-care attitude! Overall the experience there for me was very miserable!

  • (8 years ago)

    Very good school. No complaints. It would be nice if they had more electives and sports - but they are pretty good. Their campus is old and needs renovating. The teachers are very good.

    Students are great! More communication between department members would be helpful.

    My daughter started school this year transferring in from another state and she is flourishing here. I think this has more to do with the student body than with the school staff or parental involvement. The students I have met are friendly unpretentious and respectful of others. This positive social atmosphere contributes to a good learning environment.

    My child had a wonderful time at Ramona High School. She enjoyed participating in several extracurricular activites such as soccer academic league track and cross country while challenging herself with a good range of AP and Honors classes. She ended up graduating as both class president and valedictorian and is continuing education at a four year institution. My older daughter graduated 3rd in her class and went on to graduate from UCLA.

    I attended RHS along time ago back in the sixties. Any problem I had with the school was completely mine. Ramona was a great place to attend class. I should have been there more often. I loved it.

    I'm not a parent but an alumni of this school. My experience at RHS was great! Great teaching staff and a great learning environment.

    The California state budget continues to hurt all districts including this one. Even prior to the latest upcoming cuts this school lacks all the choices for advanced students such as AP classes. The school/district does not emphasize the arts. An example is a single band director for the high school/middle school and also to teach beginning band for the elementary schools. Other Arts are funded just as poorly. Great school if your child wants to be an auto mechanic.
