From academics to sports, I feel like this school exceeds all expectations for what a high school should be.

The principal, Mrs. Sellers, has done a wonderful job leading A.C. Reynolds to be one of the top schools in our area. She is strict, but fair, and you can tell that she genuinely cares about the students and their success. She is very supportive of all programs as is her staff. I would and have highly recommend this school.

If I could pick the high school I attended I wouldn't pick AC Reynolds, simply because the diversity is lacking and the student organizations are lacking membership. The school puts most of their focus on sports rather than academics, meaning that students that are doing poorly in glass but excelling in sports get to continue with sports and their education being pushed to the side.
