What teachers have said about him?

“Raul is a funny, kind, and hard working student. Since the start of the school year I have watched Raul go out of his way to help his fellow students without ever being asked. Raul cares about others and wants to help people succeed!” 

“In addition to being a great student, Raul is an amazing advocate for others when they do not have a voice. He cares deeply about his learning and success at school, but also the success of others and goes out of his way to help a friend.”

“Raul is an excellent student that takes pride in his work. He is respectful and cares about helping others.”
