The website, ratemyteachers.com, helps students, parents, and faculty make informed decisions by promoting transparency within education. This website lets users anonymously rate teachers and professors from schools all across the United States.

Personal comments about the schools and teachers are allowed as part of the ratings process, BUT there are definitive guidelines as to what is allowed when leaving a comment. For each school, there will be an individual rating from 1 to 5, with 5 being the best followed by the teacher who was rated #1.
