If I were to rate this school strictly by teachers, staff, and faculty I would give it 5+ stars. However, the student body is lacking. The school is quite diverse, the ratings listed above are most certainly wrong. As for the students; some are very disrespectful, disruptive, obnoxious, and rude. The fights that break out weekly are insane. The school is new, it serves only the subdivisions off 380 nearby. Savannah Estates, Paloma Creek north & south, most of Providence Village and I believe Lincoln Park. Again, you will not find a more eager staff and teachers willing to bend over backwards to keep your teen on the right track; they ARE the best!Basically, I tell my teens to keep to themselves, stay out of the drama and you''ll be okay. Sometimes the obnoxious ones seek out the quiet just so they have more attention cast upon them. Really wouldn''t give 2 cents for 40% of the students there. Attention seekers and trouble makers.Otherwise the school has a lot to offer!

I am a student at Ray E Braswell and the information about race diversity is all wrong. There are over 100 teachers. 6 assistant principals. This school is a top school especially with honor role.
