It is with great enthusiasm and high expectations I welcome each of you to The Raines School, Duval County’s premier high school. In the 2015-16 school year, Raines demonstrated academic growth in every state-tested content area. We continued to increase the percentage of students who were college ready in reading and math, as well as the percentage of students who received certifications from our career and technical programs. Approximately 90 % of our seniors were enrolled and passed at least one college course, and 93% of our seniors graduated with a high school diploma. As a result of these accomplishments, Raines has earned a state grade of “C”. Achievement: The Raines Experience!
