    Overall Experience: I got the education that I needed to pass my classes during my freshman year in college. However, A C Reynolds, and Buncombe County schools in general are way behind the level of other schools in the state. I was a very high ranking student at high school and am barely average in college.

    Food: In an attempt to have healthy food, foods have been changed to options with no flavor or flavor that is so terrible who would want to eat it? Healthy means nasty I guess. We'll all lose weight because we just won't eat!

    Administration & Policies: There could be more surveillance in a class when a parent calls to say that their child is being bullied but they won't say who it is but they have been told what class it is going on in.

    Sports & Fitness: Lots of team spirit for those who are actually involved in sports. Not so much spirit from those not involved in those outside sports/activities.
