Our son is a freshman and has transitioned into high school life very well , he commented that he loves high school and appreciates all the resources that are available to him , he takes advantage of the Tiger Time offered in the mornings which benefits him with subjects he is having issues with . The teachers respond quickly with any questions we have and make an extra effort in providing students with the attention they need .
My child has attended Blue Ridge area schools since kindergarten and is a freshman this year at Blue Ridge High. There are many opportunities to be involved in many aspects of school life. The school has so many excellent extracurricular programs! The academic program is very impressive as well! BRHS gets the 'best all around' award. If there is a negative to be stated, it would be that students should be allowed to have a little more fun and receive more encouragement/positive support from the administrative standpoint. That is the overwhelming complaint that I've heard most from students. However, they may not completely understand the reasons behind decisions are made. I must admit that I've wondered about some of the issues and outcomes myself. Blue Ridge High, overall, is a GREAT school. The only high school in Greenville county for MY child!
We moved to this area last year from the Chicago suburbs. We really weren't sure what to expect. My son's 9th grade experience has been wonderful. He is a straight A student in all Honors classes - he really likes his teachers. He is thriving! I really like the block schedules as well. Much better idea.
