High School Senior

On Sports & Fitness: If you are involved in sports, there is a definite sense of community from students, coaches, alumni and parents. People are proud to be a Rocket and singing the Alma Mater after returning to school from an athletic event is a memorable tradition. Some sports have more people come to watch them but, for nearly all sports there are spectators. I wish the weight room was a little more accessible for students who aren't in the football program.

On Overall Experience: I would say Reynolds is better than average (at least in our area) most of the teachers are knowledgeable, the vast majority of students follow rules, are friendly, and are respectful of others. I would say for high school it's a pretty good option but, it's by no means perfect. My overall experience at Reynolds has been positive, I have learned a lot, made friends, and stretched myself outside of the classroom.

On Health & Safety: I have never seen the school nurse but, I know the nursing/health science teacher can handle any issues that arise when the (part-time) nurse is not here. The athletic trainer also handles any sports injuries very aptly.

On Teachers: I have had pretty good teachers but, student experience depends on how much work they put in. There are some great teachers and there are some lazy teachers but, overall teachers try pretty hard to create a positive learning experience. I think the current principal has created a stifling environment for teachers and a pay freeze does little to help teacher moral.

On Extracurriculars: Sports are the dominant after school activity but there are other clubs and other options (they're just a little harder to find out about). I think in recent years extracurriculars have declined because teachers are not paid that much and are more hesitant to sponsor clubs.
