  • This is a real good school? Unfortunately, we're typing like we don't go to Ramsay.

    That's what I have yet to understand. We're highly ranked yet we talk as if we failed to get our GED.

    Get it together Rams! There's no excuse for your poor grammar!

    The rest of this school, aside from the occasional hoodrat, is very nice. Great environment, great teachers, and most importantly, smart students.

  • I believe that Ramsay was and continues to be one of the best high schools in Birmingham. One of the main reasons (in my humble opinion) is the fact that they DONOT have a football team. Ramsay is the perfect blend of a fine arts institution and a college-prep academy. My only wish (looking back)was for better one-on-one vocational counseling and intervention for the classic under-achiever OR the smart/gifted student who lacks FOCUS. These students many times fall through the cracks in such a competitive environment where discipline and performance rules.

  • I am an alumni of Ramsay High School and if it wasn't for my mother sending me to Ramsay I don't know where I would be. The school challenged me to exceed and do well in the environment that I was raised in and now I am well on to earning my Graduate degree and beyond!

    Go Rams! :)

  • Although I think that the principal lacks a great deal of personality, the teachers are great. I continue to send my child to this school due to it's emaculate turn out of successful people.

  • I'm a Ramsay High Alumni and I am still proud of the school that gave me a great educational foundation. My education was on and off campus. I was able to travel and perform across the state and country which greatly assisted me in becoming the speaker and facilitator that I am.

  • i am a freshman at this school and it is the best school ever. They care about students at this learning environment
    they care about academics and fine arts
    all of our classes are honors and when we graduate we get advanced diplomas
    the only thing is you have to mantain a 2.7 gpa to stay at ramsay high school that makes us try even harder to stay in this wonderful school
    everybody thinks that we're suck ups but we're not we are just like everything else

  • I dont think ramsay is all that because u have students that is basically on the same levels as in other schools. Ramsay is not what is crack up to be.
    But I give them a three because they try and thats what counts!!
