I have two kids at Reynolds, and they love the school, the teachers, and the classes (I asked them!). While I was dealing with an extended illness, the teachers were stellar in keeping the kids on track and the family in the loop. The teachers have high expectations, but are very accessible, and provide the students with many tools for success. There is zero tolerance for bullying. The middle school is beside the high school, and they work well together. There is a strong emphasis on college prep. The athletic and music programs are also great. The new principal (2012-13) seems a good fit. I highly recommend AC Reynolds Middle School.

Im a student at this school and all they worrie about is the disciplain.. you cant look, talk, sneeze, cough.. or do anything at this school without getting a note sent home or a school wide or even ISS.. i would NOT reccomend this school for anyone.


Posted October 21, 2010

This school is run like a boot camp. Their main focus is on discipline rather than teaching. The principal does not listen to what the parents have to say, or his students. This school zaps the motivation to want to learn with its heavy focus on over-discipline. Thus, creating a very negative environment. Pick another school with a more evolved principal.

I am very pleased with AC Reynolds MS. My son is attending school there. He is living with grandparents while going to school there. The principal and teachers are quick to answer any questions I have about my son education. They also let me know what is needed. I ave very pleased

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
