I've attended Reynolds since the beginning of Freshman year to my last year as a senior, anticipating graduation in 2017. Reynolds was a very interesting school. Being a minority I noticed there was not much diversty at that school, but people are nice. The teacher are nice as well, but you can sense they are always busy. Something I have also noticed was that minorites at Reynolds don't get the same opportunity as the mass of white students. They also don't prepare you for college at all or inform you abour how to apply for college and scholarships unless you are an Ap student. I would definitely like to see that change, because it is extremely unfair.

AC Reynolds High School is a really good school. From attending this school for 4 years straight, I can attest to this personally. Of the 15 plus teachers I have had here, only 2-3 have been really bad. The teachers are truly concerned about your wellbeing and preparedness for the class and future. The only thing I do not like is the administration and dress code. It is very restrictive and being pulled out of class for a minor dress code violation is wrong in my opinion. Not as many boys are dress coded as girls.

Leaving the halls of AC Reynolds has never been a more prominent hope than in my final year as a senior. Although when I look back and think on my experience here at this high school I would say I'm very lucky. I'm lucky that AC Reynolds offers all the programs that is does. There is always something to get involved with. I'm glad to be loving on to bigger and better institutions, but for a high school, Reynolds has satisfied me in a way I think no other high school could.
