Ronald Reagan High School has accomplished a lot in the few years it has been open. Most of the kids are over achievers, but they support and encourage each other. The teachers and programs are great! My son is a Junior at Reagan and he says the students really do not care about the overcrowding. The high quality of the education makes up for the crowded classrooms and hallways.
We were very disillusioned by Reagan's academic attention by the teachers. When attention was needed, few teachers seemed to step up to the plate. The extracurricular activities are excellent. We removed our student from Reagan in the middle of her sophomore year.
Reagan is one of the best schools our child has attended other than the Department of Defense School System on a installation. We regrettably have to leave the area and the city where we are going doesn't have a school to compare to Reagan. Yikes.
Reagan High School is the best in San Antonio. The teachers are very involved with school events and there is enough extra activities for everyone.
This is my first year at Reagan, and I love it. There are countless extra curricular programs, even more eager and helpful teachers, and great food. My only complaint is that the student enrollment number is rising higher and higher. It's almost 4000 right now, so the halls are rather crowded.
I went there for three years, and had to transfer to smithson valley due to a divorce. And the counselors and teachers were so supportive and helpful. An besides that they are alll wonderful and actually care. I have been to alot of schools, 14 othem, and that was the best ever. I will always remember my time there. Always. I wish I could have graduated there.
My daughter is graduating in May of 06. What a Great school. Classes are tough, but the children do extremly well on PSAT'S/SAT'S/ACT'S and the state mandated TAKS test. The school has the largest PTA in the country and it shows. Any program that you can think of is available at Reagan. They are quickly becoming a power house in many sports also. The school is only 6 yrs old. The facilities are second to none.
My son is a senior at reagan and absolutely loves it. The principal, teachers and counselors are extremely helpful. It is obvious they really care about the students. My son is well prepared for the college of his choice, and I wouldn't have him at any other school. Go rattlers! As far as parent involvement...Wow, you couldn't ask for more involvement! The new principal is very much on top of things. He believes in walking around and being out with the students. The students respect him. I can't say enough great things about rrhs. 'Thanks for being such a wonderul school and preparing our students for the future.'
I am new and have found that the counselors are quite helpful with a little encouragement.
While I have to agree that classroom size is way too large, and I am concerned about the effect it can have on the students, the most recent comment on lack of parental involvement is unfounded. Reagan has the largest PTA membership in the state, and there are hundreds of parents who volunteer for anything from stuffing welcome packets to chaperoning and working at games to assisting in the office, etc. There are always opportunities for a parent to volunteer and be 'visible' at the school, if they so choose, as well as represent your child. As for the discipline issue, there is bound to be a discipline problem at any school of Reagan's size. I think the administration is doing most everything it can to solve this problem (i.e., video cameras placed around the campus, etc.). Reagan is probably as good as it gets for a school of it's size.
My child has been attending Reagan for 2 years and we are unhappy with it. There are discipline problems and lack of parent involvement. Classroom sizes are too large due to the the overwhelming number of students.
It's great that a school is named after President Reagan. His legacy will live on with the students there.
School offers a stagering variety of academic programs to students willing to get involved. Also continiues to expand its offerings of AP courses. Recognized academically at the local, state, national, and even international level in math, science, theater, history, Model UN, and Destination Imagination.
I am a student at Reagan High School, and the education students are receiving is not only invigorating, but also challenging and engaging. The administration runs the school like a college campus, and it has been proven that students from Reagan are more likely to have better grades in college than students from other schools. The teachers are motivating and supportive of their students; I would not want to attend any other school. I feel very fortunate to be attending such an amazing school, and to be receiving such a well rounded education.
Good school but has a lot of potential bad influences. Drugs and sex cliques do exist as they do in most all large schools. Excellent teachers, excellent theater and sports.
Reagan High School provides a high quality of education and the teachers are exemplary. Ample opportunity for educational support is offered by the staff. If you are looking for a good educational opportunity, Reagan is where to find it!
Unfair treatment and profiling shown by teachers and administration. Civility towards students is lacking from most teachers who would rather refer instead resolve.
We moved here from Oklahoma and have been very pleased with the school in every way. If you are considering a move to San Antonio, please consider this school, the staff and teachers are very supportive of both parents and students. The standards this school sets for the students are high and they give every child a chance to succeed.
This is the best high school in San Antonio. Not only are academics the highest here, but so are the standards for the students character. There is a place for every student to belong. It is terrific! Go Rattlers!
