School Reviews

5  
My daughter is in her second year at Ramona and is very happy with her decision to go there. She loves the culture, the classes, the teachers and the variety of activities. She's very much breaking out of her introverted shell and challenging herself to try many new things. Academically she is challenged by her honors and AP courses.
