Our 2002/2003 school year brought many changes in the Raven administration with Patrick Jacobs taking over as Principal and Jenny Moore and Tonya Johnson serving as Assistant Principals. David Cupulo was also a classroom teacher while he completed his Assistant Principal internship at Riverwood Middle. The number of students jumped by one hundred, soaring to 710 total students. Along with the student increase came three additional teachers. The student body president was led by Dana Alibrandi.
Some special events to remember were:
- Space shuttle tragedy on 2/1/2003
- Movie Box Office: Men In Black II
- Initial season of American Idol - Kelly Clarkson was the victor
