What a great place to be – AC Reynolds High School! It is an honor to serve the students, faculty and staff, parents, and community of AC Reynolds. Whether in the classroom, on a field or court, or on stage, we will strive for excellent at our school. I stand firm in believing that students deserve the opportunity to be proud of their school and wear the ACR emblem with pride.
Speaking of pride, we have started our PBIS initiative at AC Reynolds High School. We encourage students to show their RPI everyday and everywhere – RPI is Rocket Pride Inside with Respect, Pride, and Integrity.
Our pride beams when we look at last year’s data for AC Reynolds High School. We completed the year with numerous accolades. Our testing data consistently placed us in the top 3 of all Buncombe County Schools in the End of Course, ACT and SAT, and WorkKeys testing; our students scored above the district, state, and national levels (where applicable). Our students had the highest performance of any Buncombe County School in Advanced Placement testing, where we offer 14 face to face Advanced Placement courses, and numerous others in an online setting. Our distance learning lab is to capacity every period with opportunities for students to be dual enrolled and experience virtual distance learning. While we did not meet growth for the 2013-2014 academic year, we met 69 of our 71 targets, 97.2% of all targets for our school. We were recognized as the 12th ranked high school in the state of North Carolina, according to US News and World Report. As a result of our at risk student support program utilizing our staff, support staff, and community resources in order to keep our students in school and being successful, we have raised our graduation rate to 89.1%, the highest rate ever recorded at AC Reynolds High School. Our teachers work very hard to have these data results because they know it represents learning for students.
We are a school with a strong sense of community on our campus and receive support from our community in numerous ways. All ACRHS stakeholders take great pride in our school and put students first in making decisions. A complete sense of community exists in BIG GREEN COUNTRY!
