I was extremely pleased with the education my daughter received from Rampart High School. She enjoyed her four years at the school. It has great academics, offering IB Program and Advanced Placement classes that are taught by very knowledgeable and dedicated teachers. A wide variety of extra-curricular activities are also offered. The AP classes helped my daughter graduate with an undergraduate degree, Masters and MBA in five years.

Attended 1985-1988; can't say that the bathrooms were "disgusting". What would I know as a teenager whether or not a school's academics were up to par unless I was influenced by my parents. I survived Rampart. I am grateful for the my attendance there. Could have been far, far worse...Palmer?

Rampart is one of the finest public schools in D20. The students have an abundant amount of after school activities to choose from along with vigorous academics. The front office and administrators are always on hand to answer parent questions and concerns.

Rampart is the best public school out there. The teachers are excellent, the administration is not on a power-trip, and the courses are widely varied. The after-school activities are competitive, and varied enough for everyone.

Rampart High School provides an excellent atmosphere for all of its students. The athletic, academic, and extracurricular opportunities allow every student to be involved in whatever their interests may be. For the optimal education at Rampart, I recommend the IB Programme. The academic rigor of IB is undeniable, particularly at the Junior and Senior level; however, the sense of community it provides and the preparation for college makes it well worth it. Rampart's offering of the IB Programme is something that every parent and student should consider and not take for granted.

THis is a very fine public school. The academics seem very strong for a public high school, and the IB Program is a great college prep course. However, there is too much of a focus on athletics, the bathrooms are gross, the administration is absolutely impossible to deal with (whether a student or a parent), and there have already been multiple fire alarm pranks, a threat on the school, and an incident of arson and resisting arrest so far this year. To combat this, the administration kicks all the unsupervised kids out of the building each day as soon as school ends and locks them outside, which is very frustrating. However, on the whole, a solid school with teachers who care.

Rampart provides courses in a vast range of subjects allowing students to take classes in what is particularly interesting for them. Their 'Tech Wing' is an amazing wing of the school where students can do many things like yearbook, newspaper, and video broadcasting.

Rampart High School is a safe, clean environment that anyone can feel welcome in. The performing arts are a huge part of this school and have been recognized for it state-wide and even nationally.

I am not afraid to say that the school is, frankly, disgusting. The bathrooms are a health hazard and uncomfortable. Toilets leak and clog, often there is no soap, locks are missing from the stalls so students must cover the gaping holes with toilet paper, and trash dispensers for 'personal hygiene products' are lacking in many of the bathrooms.

The school has a culture of excellence and it encourages students to participate and try many activities. The parental support is phenomenal. The music program is second to none, and the IB track prepares students for some of the most exciting scholarship opportunities anywhere.
