I've attended Ramirez since the start of the school year as a seventh grader, while my elder brother was enrolled last year for 8th. The teachers overall are absolutely amazing at communicating the subject quite well & providing the needed attention but there are definitely a few that aren't as fabulous. Of all the administrators I see the councillor the most & the principal about biweekly, sometimes even less, nearly on the grounds. The security & other faculty are marvelous, too. Pre-AP classes are not that challenging however just seem to be more homework, especially English which is plain atrocious in teaching. The students are split into 3 groups pretty much; the snotty popular kids who are rude & judgmental, the normal kids who start useless drama or are pulled into the drama, & the lucky ones who just do their own thing. The eighth graders are mean & brutal if you get in their way or aren't in cahoots with them, shoving & jeering in the hallways. I think we need a little longer passing period as I have two classes on complete opposite corners of the school which makes it hard to get there in the allotted time. Overall it's pretty good, but definitely has room to improve.
