Ramona Rampage Team 1159 is an all-girls Robotics team composed of about 30 members. For eleven years, we have striven to change a male-oriented status quo and increase female interest in the various scientific fields; moreover, our girls have varying interests but manage to contribute to different aspects of the team's goals each season.
Committed to helping students reach their full potential, Ramona is set apart by our rich curriculum, expansive selection of college preparatory and AP/Honors courses, comprehensive co-curricular programs, and welcoming community.  At Ramona, students will travel through four years with the support of spirited friends and expert, caring, and engaged teachers while surrounded by the inspiring beauty of a college-like campus.
Ramona's Mission, as a welcoming and inclusive Catholic school sponsored by the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary, is to provide an educational program that graduates young women who are characterized by academic excellence, spiritual depth, moral strength, and personal grace, open to the wisdom of other cultures and traditions, and prepared to lead and serve in an evolving interdependent global community.
