Ravenscroft School Ratings & Reviews

This is an amazing place and we have loved it from kindergarten and have two children there. I must note reading the review regarding diversity that I am disappointed with their evaluation and also a little dismayed given all I know that the school is doing to promote inclusivity etc. My kids have been in classes with, and have friends that are, students from China, India, Japan, Korea, and much of Africa and Europe. What I hear from my kids is that these kids are not only accepted and included but celebrated for the diverse backgrounds they bring and enhance this culturally rich community. Beyond the first class academics, we have an amazing Fine Arts dept, which produces incredible performances and visual art and seems to become increasingly breathtaking year after year. If you want to see diversity - there it is - everything from Shakespeare to Disney, classical composers from the era of Madrigals through to Jewish and African music and modern pop, rap, jazz - it's all there and provides a first class foundation for the student's life in the fine arts or their deep study at college. Sports are the typical variety and taught and performed well. Each year the school seems to produce excellent teams to compete with other local schools despite not having thousands of students to pick from. Regarding a diversity of student styles - my kids are entirely different. Both needed very different approaches to be successful and the school figured that out very quickly and partnered with us to help understand that and find solutions for each child that were successful. I am amazed at how much this place feels like family - every teacher seems to know my kids by sight and name and as the kids move up are always asking after them and how they are progressing. The only area of diversity which I didn't expect to see at a fairly expensive private school was economic and sure the upper school parking lot has some very expensive cars in it(!). However, the parent body also donates large amounts of money every year, a large chunk of which goes to provide financial aid which 10% of the student body receives in some form or other. It is hard for me to think of a negative for my experience here but if I had to pick one it would be homework load. As a kid, I had weekends to enjoy - not so much here. But then I didn't attend a private college prep school. First class place.

Excellent - I have two boys in the upper school, one is a junior and the other is a senior. They have blossomed at Ravenscroft academically, socially and otherwise...and are incredibly well supported as they pursue college applications.

"I wish I had removed my daughter from this school. There is very little diversity both within the student body and the teachers. If you are looking for diversity or if your child is ""different"", this school is not for you. There are much better schools to spend your money. Those that know the area well know that both Cary Academy or Durham Academy are much better institutions. We waited too long to realize this."
