This school district is one of the best I've ever seen. My child enjoys the activities that they offer as well as the educational curriculum. My child looks forward to going to school every day and coming home to tell our family about his educational experiences. The staff in my opinion, are some of the best qualified educators that I have ever met. The Raymond school district deserves five stars.

The school being newly re-built is great; however, instead of ensuring the students are learning and getting extra help when needed; they pay more attention to their curriculums being met. They also lack on getting parents involved with students and their academics.

I went to IHGMS 4-6th grade and it is a great school with many learning opportunities. The standards are set high so students and strive to reach their goal, and they do.

Passing of Middle School proposal has had a positive impact on the chidlren, staff and community. All are excited to see the new building and are willing to take a little disruption (2005-2006 year) with the construction to see a positive result. A true turn around for the town that proves that the demographics and community are changeing positively in the town of Raymond. A great start to a brighter future.

The number of home schooled or private schooled children speaks volumes on the quality of this school.

Administration doing an admirable job under severe circumstances. Teaching staff doing better than average, again under negative conditions. School buiilding VERY OLD and DECREPID. Many leaking roof areas. A small amount of the parents do take responsibility, work hard for the schools, and support all that is done, thank God!

Poor School building, Poor teaching staff, very poor town involvement, Tax payers to cheap to support their schools.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted November 1, 2004

School seems to focus more on disipline than learning, School buildings in desperate need of repair or replacement. Town voters not willing to support schools where it counts 'there pocketbook'. Faculty seems to be trying but lack of funds and support cause frustration. We are in search of a private school for next year, or move.
