as a freshman and sophomore I really enjoyed having smart period. Smart period was a time to help me, specifically, in my math class. My junior year, we got a new principal, and things changed. Somethings changed for the good and others, not so much. I also really enjoyed being in the arts and theatre program! Those two programs brought my high school life together.

If you are looking for the high school in Asheville, I recommend T.C.r Roberson High School! Because the T. C. Roberson High School has awesome teachers and they are always ready to help you. In addition, T. C. Roberson Atlhletics is very competitive which is really good if you are willing to play sports.
I enjoyed my overall experience in high school, I had some amazing teachers, but a few terrible ones, thankful the amazing ones helped me get through high school. They helped me apply for school, with testing, stayed after school way later than necessary to help me understand the material. The only thing I would change is the counseling center I feel like some of the counselors seemed to not care so much about the students issues which I feel like a counselor is your responsibility to the student
