Excellent! I am currently a 7th grade student of the 2012-2013 school year. I love going to RAMS, but there's some things that aren't fair. They treat students somewhat like babies, always trying to babysit them. Other than that, academically it's awesome! The teachers do their best teaching and caring for you. We have fantastic sports teams, we're really big on basketball and football. Our extra-curricular classes are pretty good. I would recommend RAMS to anyone. The only thing I don't like about RAMS and Girard itself is that people are nosy and word gets around fast. But, what can you expect in a small town!? Girard and its schools, Elk Valley, Rice Avenue, and GHS are phenomenal!

I am a Freshman at GHS now. RAMS is an okay school, academically. On the other hand, the administrators are extremely frusterating and irritating and there is no air conditioning and since it is a huge building it gets extremely hot for most of the year. Its not the best school around but for a small country town, its alright.

This is a very good school, i go to this school and i think its great! but the changes i would like to make are no cameras. For my opinion, thats crazy but its right! thats smart because what if you see someone doing something very bad and no one cought him/her. So whoever thought of that good thinking.. well even though i dont like them because i am scared that i'll get in trouble if i do somthing bad wich i dont rerely do.

I love the teachers at RAMS and staff and i think they really helped me with my learning skills and i thank them for that the only reason i rated it 4/5 is that i get bullied and they dont seem to care well at least some of the staff.

This school is way to hard. If we do not do our homework three times, a detention is handed out. What if we have three emergencies?
