While every school these days has its problems, and Mount Rainier is no exception to that, MRHS is much better than most in the area. The staff is qualified, and cares for the students. While MRHS is not drug or thug free (I don't know of a local high school that is) they are much better than the others. The school offers extra curricular programs, including sports and other after school programs. If you have a choice, and are near here, this is a great option.
