    Overall Experience: Overall my experience at Academy of Richmond County was challenging. The work teachers give you is something you'll have to pay attention to in order to understand. Yes, I had my moments where I wanted to switch schools. My first year, I took all AP classes, and it was tough but I made my way through. It got easier as the time went by. I wouldn't want to change anything that happened at ARC. If it wasn't for most of my teachers there I wouldn't have made it through high school. I'm glad I had my experience at ARC, I will always bleed purple and gold.

    Administration & Policies: Academy of Richmond County administrators have really cracked down on the students this 2014-2015 school year. We have less tardies, less suspension. They have added 4 hall monitors to our school which is helpful to the system.
