As a senior, all I can say about this school is that I've been to college summer programs and that gave me more reassurance about my career/life than this school has ever done. The highlight of my time here is listening to my father rant about the useless, obtuse rules we are given, and we're treated like elementary school students while expected to perform in AP/Honors classes.

But, on the positive, this school helped me find a very good therapist. She's great. Also the baked Cheetos in the cafeteria help me get through sleepless nights when spite won't.
Review A.C. Reynolds High School
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.
Great school with lots of learning options for the students. Years back, the principal was not as strong as the one who is there today (Mrs. Sellers). I didn't realize the depth, knowledge, and compassion of Mrs. Sellers until I worked with her helping one of my daughters to turn around her grades. Mrs. Sellers was the one who made things happen.
