I am currently a senior at the Academy of Richmond County. The past three and a half years have allowed me to grow as an individual in ways I never saw coming. I have made wonderful memories at my high school that I will cherish for many years to come. Also, there have been situations that have pushed me out of my comfort zone both socially and academically. I believe that I made the best out of my four years, and would encourage any prospective students to do the same!
The Academy of Richmond is beautiful, although not very stable. Sports are our main focus, along with academics. Teachers are pretty straight-forward and look to helping you if needed. The floors at this school are starting to cave in, but they can create two new baseball fields and provide us with new textbooks. Food tastes bland, and is never fully cooked, or is burnt. Although our teachers are concerned for our best interests, like passing, they tend to explain things once. If help is needed they are willing to give it out. They have tutoring hours and specific days. They are always open to emails. Many students, however, will not speak up about how they do not understand. This can result in failure.
