Most of the teachers are cool but every math teacher ive had throughout my high school years was really bad at teaching. They need to focus more on the math and art program instead of the sports program since it's, well, an arts magnet school. The dress code and some rules are also pretty restrictive and unrealistic. But overall it was an okay school to go to. I still love our art program despite its flaws.
its not a bad school i just like the diversity in the school and seeing all kind of people in school
This school is good for those who want to experience a highly diverse school, the teachers here are good for the most part and there are decent courses available.
We have a few teachers very involved in our education, caring about everyone's success, unfortunately we also have teachers that are there for a paycheck, that needs to change.
My experience has had it's ups and downs but overall R J Reynolds is not a bad school. I enjoyed most of my time there.
I've been a Reynold's student since I was a freshmen, I am now a senior. Overall, I enjoy Reynolds; make new bonds with teachers and other students.
My experience at Reynolds High School was eventful. It is a very wide campus which I think is beneficial for when you choose to go to college, you’ll get use to walking from building to building.There’s a lot of diversity on campus. Th teachers are helpful and they challenge you. I enjoyed participating in the arts department such as photography and dance.
I loved being at Reynolds very much! What I loved most about it was it's large 6 building campus. being in such large school meant I was surrounded by a large supply of diverse people. It felt like a small little society. My only complaint would be that the math department was severely lacking.
Reynolds was a pretty great school to attend. It’s very inclusive and diverse with many opportunities.
Great school to go to with students of different ethnic background and colors, very diverse and also great teachers too and lots of extracurricular activities to join
My freshman year at Reynolds was great if I’m being honest. It was fun and we did a much of activities, etc. But as the years went on, the school took a drastic turn for the worst. No more events. Sports were being cancelled due to budget cuts, and our activities were being cancelled due to the zone school kids getting into fights, etc. There were times when people would feel like the school didn’t know how to properly handle certain situations such as snow days, resting, or even something as simple as picture day. Everything seemed rushed and all over the place. Not to mention that my counselor never once Ms answered any of my emails and the people at the front office/guidance weren’t very nice or professional for my first three years.
Communication from the administration is a huge problem at RJR, so it’s up to the teachers to reach out to students with pertinent information. Students have access to a variety of different extracurricular activities, but less than half participate. Reynolds has an outstanding arts program, but this creates a social divide between “artsy” pupils and everyone else. Many peoples and views are represented, creating a very diverse environment. The football team sucks, but the soccer and lacrosse programs have been top tier for years. The campus is beautiful, but with its age comes lack of modernity, such as air conditioning in the gymnasium. There are no school dances other than prom, and even that is underwhelming. It’s prestige is built upon almost 100 years of academic excellence. Reynolds is outstandingly ordinary, but still better than Mt. Tabor.
At Reynolds you're connected to so many resources that you'll be prepared for college. It has a nice Magnet program and i recommend coming here if you want to major in science and engineering in college
My experience at Reynolds was a lot of fun, just the energy from the sports and from the extracurricular clubs was awesome. I made a lot of lifetime friends and teachers who I will look up to forever.
My high school experience was overall a good one. Reynolds was a place where you could get a pretty decent education around decent people. The math department needs help but english and history are strong. The school has a good mix of arts and education. Being the most diverse school in the county it still has racial issues that need to be fixed .
Throughout my years at Reynolds I have had the chance to be involved in many clubs and sports from basketball to A Capella. There are a variety of things to get involved in as you prepare for college and people to guide you along the way.
When it comes to the arts magnet program, Reynolds is a great choice. RJR so many unique art classes with teachers that are passionate about what they do. If you are interested in theater, photography, chorus/acapella, piano, etc., then Reynolds is a great choice. However, the math department severely lacks and although RJR is statistically diverse, it tends to be cliquey and segregated.
