High School Junior

On Extracurriculars: There are tons of clubs to join, but most people are just looking for something to put on their college applications.

High School Senior

On Academics: I have enjoyed all my classes and teachers, and throughout high school my only B's have been in AP classes, so I am pretty proud of that.

High School Senior

On Resources & Facilities: There are now more iPads around school, as well as chrome books to supplement lap tops. Tutoring is offered by every teacher before or after school, too. I wish there was a college prep class though, it would have been really useful.

High School Senior

On Overall Experience: I have about three really, really, amazing friends that I'm tight with. This is so refreshing when the majority of the school lives in country clubs, and are only concerned with UNC Chapel Hill and partying. If given a choice between Ardrey Kell and Providence, I would still absolutely choice Ardrey Kell. The staff is great, my friend circle is great, and every school is going to have people that you won't be able to stand.

High School Senior

On Teachers: I have loved all of my teachers, from grade nine to grade twelve. It might have to due with the fact tha tI'm in all honors and APs, but I've heard other people liking other teachers I haven't had as well.
