I used to go to RAMS but I left of kids being racists to me. Actually, most Asians leaves RAMS from this reason. The teachers gives little attention to this problem. Also, from being at RAMS, I find the education too easy. At my new school, I instantly got a horrible grade in math because the teachers do not check your homework in RAMS.

I go to this school. I think it is a great school compared to my old middle school (Bemidji Middle School). There are a lot of fights but thats normal. It would be nice if you could take more then one music beacuse when I moved here I had to drop Orchestra beacuse I was also in Band. The new lanyereds I find to be a horrible idea. They were a waste of money I never see anyone wearing them, except for sevies (7th graders) who are scared to be in trouble. Also I have heard rumers that the school spent the money from the Valley Fair money to spend of landyers, if they did there is going to be a lot more fights and arguing because people have been looking foward to it since last year. I am in both Geometry and Spanish, which are the only higher options avaible. I would be very happy if there was more higher options for people with higher goals. Otherwise I would recomend this school to most people.

I go to this school, and it's actually not as great as they say. The reviewers do not know what they're rating. Principal Leadership should have gotten a higher rating. Dr. Hoskins is an amazing leader and a great principal! Kids in our school may break the rules a lot, but she handles it well with her supportive staff! The safety is pretty much the worst issue. There are way too many fights, but they handle it. I only have a problem with some of the teachers being really strict. I would recommend this school for some reasons, but not for many.
