    The message that students receive upon entering Ramsey High School is that this is your "home away from home".  Some say a kitchen is the heart of the home.  As a school district, Ramsey strives to advance 21st Century learning that prepares students for success as they enter college and the workplace.  We expect our graduates to be able to solve complex, subject-based, and multidisciplinary problems by collaborating, thinking critically, and maximizing the use of available technology.   Read More and see the renovation gallery.
