Trusting my kids less and less in the hands of this school. Seems like there is not enough supervision and disciplinary measures are not taken seriously.

Sad to see this school take a dive over the past 4-5 years. Good teachers, who care. Just bad infrastructure. Seems like administration lacks the expertise or motivation to run things how they used to be run. It's a shame cause students are suffering.

Ratcliffe used to be a great school. Unfortunately leadership changed several years ago and as a result test scores have fallen off the map and good teachers are fleeing. Really disappointed and concerned for the school and community. HCPS needs to intervene.

As an educator at Ratcliffe I am proud and privileged to be a Ram. The staff is committed to excellence and sets high expectations of all students. As our performance this year proves Rams Rock!! I look forward to beginning another with the amazing faculty, students, and parents at Ratcliffe.

As an educator at Ratcliffe, I am proud to be a part of this school. The staff is topnotch and the administration is superior. It is a shame that our school's reputation is based on the fact that we are an 'East End School'. With all that we are doing in our classrooms and with the community, I am sure our performance will speak for itself! ourRatcliffe'ourRatpperfomance will speak for

I am so happy with this school. I always dream about my kids going to the perfect school and I have found it. The teachers are excellent and caring. They are always willing to talk to you and help you out if you have a questions about tests or their grades. My daughter is in their PEDD class and from the beginning all the staff was wonderful! There was a dumb question and they understood our concerns. They are to me the best. We have discussions and go over her progress and how we can work together to bring out the best in her. My son KG teacher was excellent and his 1st grade teacher is awesome. These ladies are fabulous and go over and beyond the call of duty. This is want our youth needs great teachers to succeed in life. I thank Ratcliffe for giving that to them.

Great school under new leadership. Teachers communicate with parents and PTA has several activities to involve parents. I have seen improvement in the total instructional program. Keep up the work
