If not on the AP track little homework is given and therefore not all of the information covered in AP is covered at other levels. It's not a matter of the amount of detail covered the material isn't covered at all.
I'm a sophomore currently and honestly I have nothing good to say about this school. Its horrid. It's way too competitive and the stress levels are very high. Having an 95+ average won't even get you into to the top 10%. The fine arts department doesn't get the funding it deserves. Paying for sports or any other athletic activity is so much money; almost $1000+ depending on the sport you play. The lunches are disgusting & the other students are very quick to judge. Getting into a good college is tough if you're not in the top 10. Even teachers support being super competitive. This school is not what it seems to be.
I meant Basketball Team! Sorry, That one was full since last year , lots of new awesome kids went to try outs and didn't get to the team . My son made it for other sports like track, soccer but he love and misses basketball,... He's new and enjoying a lot the school. Great teachers. He says Sharyland was harder.
Not true about school having there teams picked out. My daughter is new to this school she comes from a private school. She tried out for the swim team and made it. She knew no one and know has plenty of good friends and loves the school. Her classes are even harder then private and is learning a lot. She really enjoys going to Reagan, especially being part of a team.
It's not a terrible school but clearly not a GREAT one. Especially for the average student that's also new to SAT. The distractions are huge and extremely overwhelming to a child that wants to fit in socially. My advice; know your child first before enrollment. Your child must be very independent and extremely secure within themselves to THRIVE at Reagan. We had to remove our child from NEISD to a school system that takes the time to understand and develop each child while also providing the right level of support and guidance parents expect every child to receive.
I am currently a sophomore at Reagan and have gotten to know the school pretty well. Although I do love Reagan, it does have some flaws. This school is very competitive, many teachers do choose favorites, extra-curricular activities are expensive to the point many people who want to do them can not,etc. I also have experienced Pre-AP classes, although I have switched some to regular classes because the lack of attention from some teachers and the expectation of perfection among teachers(mostly English teachers). I understand that not everything can be perfect and that Reagan does have flaws, but I wouldn't choose any other school to attend. RATTLER FOREVER!!!!
