Reynoldsburg is comprised of four separate interest-based academies at two campuses which is fantastic for kids who want to concentrate in a specific area such as math and science performing arts education or health sciences. There is a community college on site where kids can earn college credit or credit for both college and high school at the same time for only $25 per course. There are a wide variety of extracurricular activities; my children participate in swimming track marching band choir orchestra and indoor drumline. There is a big robotics team at the stem academy. My kids are having a great experience.

Part 2 (Again. sorry.) -If you talk to any guidance counselor they will answer any and ALL of your questions regarding your child's education.Personally I am a straight-A student with a 4.62 GPA and frequently visit our counselor for school advice. -The dress code is not an issue. It was put in place because a few students from a rival school came in with their hoods up and sunglasses on and beat up several Reynoldsburg students. It's not pointless. It was not to raise school spirit. It was for security. -Violence. I will admit I have seen a few fights take place at school but these are mostly because of little teenage problems like stolen boyfriends and who-kissed-who or whatever situations. I have never seen anyone get personal over a taco salad though. No one does that. Thank you for reading my review of AN AMAZING AND WONDERFUL SCHOOL TO GO TO. P.S. They don't just care about the test scores. How do you think they get those great test scores? (Hint they teach the students well....)
If you are moving to the central Ohio area please avoid Reynoldsburg City Schools and enroll elsewhere. Both high school campuses are rife with disciplinary problems. The guidance counselor we were assigned (Ms. Gengo) left virtually every question unanswered and when I asked her why she couldn't answer questions about classes she was very flippant and seemingly uncaring in her response. It has been my experience that the staff and teachers care very little for the students they are responsible for educating. Our experience has been with the Summit Road eSTEM program.
The ratings on this website are old and absolite. I am so happy about how Reynoldsburg has cleaned up their act in the past few years. If you're reading the comments below YES a levy was passed and YES the school is rated excellent by the state. Both things that could not have been said previously. Violence is no longer as big of a problem as it was. The high school is now broken up into interest based "academies" for a more personalized learning experience. There is a new school building so the school is no longer as crowded and thanks to the new academy system class sizes are much smaller. I used to be affraid for my son and daughter to go to school in Reynoldsburg but now I am proud and know my children will get the education and high school experience they deserve.
GREAT SCHOOL??? My daughter was threatened today with getting her face punched in because she took the last taco salad. What is going on when we leave our children at school and what type of kids are other parents raising that they think this is acceptable behavior. Not to mention the teachers refuse to get involved. Uniforms...why bother. you know the old saying you can't change a leopards spots...FYI..once a bully always a bully uniforms do not change someones personality. Where were the adults when my child was getting threatened????
Not one cent held back for all the importent things kids need . And more funding is on the way next year .
As a student here I absolutly hate it. I'm going into 10th grade and I'm trying to get my parents to enroll me somewhere else. The uniforms for one are stupid and they don't help the student behavior at all. Fights are a weekly sometimes daily accourance. It's very unorganized and does not have the typical high school feel it feels more like a prison with the uniforms and fights. I've went to school here since kindergarden and in the past 2-3 years it's gotten worse and worse. I've expierienced more violence my 9th grade year of high school than alot people experience in their whole life. If you go to school at Reynoldsburg high school high school will definatly not be the best time of your life.
Reynoldsburg has fallen victim to urban sprawl in the last few years. My son was ecstatic that I changed jobs and relocated between his Sophomore and Junior years. While the school preached social integration the only things that were truly integrated were my money with the subsidized lunch clothing and supply programs that I was funding for the 'disadvantaged'. The school had problems with security so parents paid more guards more money to pay attention. When that didn't work they changed the dress code to students having to wear 'purple' or 'gold' t-shirts so the guards could identify who really belonged there. Guess who paid for the new attire for those who claimed they could not afford it? Subsidized programs are fine when they are monitored but while I was paying my neighbors were receiving because they knew someone on the 'inside'. Now levys won't pass. I can't imagine why...
My son is a freshman at the high school and we have been in the district since he was in 6th grade. I moved to Reynoldsburg to get him out of Columbus Public before he started middle school and was pleased with the school district at that time. Now after the failure of the school levy (several times) I am totally disgusted with this district. I'm on this website looking into other schools because as far as I'm concerned we can't move out of Reynoldsburg fast enough. All of the cuts that are being made are going to take away our childrens competitive edge when comes to college recruiting and this is for everything from academics to athletics. Removing AP classes and forigen languages and having $500.00 pay to play fees ...this district is a joke!!!
It's all about kids achieving excellence and meeting their goals. The Reynoldsburg High School staff administration support staff and community all work very hard together to make this happen. We pride ourselves on excellence. I believe these kids have done a great job accepting the changes and cuts made as a result of this economic depression. They stand tall and proud.
This school has a dress code for no reason no choices or options in education or appearance. But they have great teachers and staff
I believe that RHS is a good school. And I believe that the Trailblazers program is a good program and the last help for students. However thier administration is something to be desired. I have heard complaints that thier administration and know for myself are just a buch of 'speakers'. They do not and I say do not follow through on what they promised to the parent or the students!
Reynoldsburg High has changed since I entered freshman year. Uniforms have not positively affected the spirit of the students. I don't care about the numbers the statistics etc. The atmosphere is terribly negative and many of the students say that they are 'done' with the school. I believe that the focus should be on education not our appearance.
Im a student at rhs trailblazers..And i have alot of good things to say about reynoldsburg. Alot of people try to say we're getting diplomas handed to us for free.. But they obiviously are just ignorant because rhs cares about our future.. I came to the highschool my junior year and compared to my previous school they actually made sure i passed my ogts and gave me the skills to understand subjects taught. If anyone doesnt know ogts is a test that everyone in ohio has to take not just reynoldsburg. Without this test you can not qualify to get your diploma. So yes reynoldsburg may care alot about us passing those test but that is just the first step..They also teach us alot more.. I was really sad when i left my previous highschool but after i got to reynoldsburg my grades went up and i've alot more.
the high school is terrible. Many of the students are below average but with our 'remedial classes' these students are graduating without putting in work but instead getting free food and easy subjects. Trailblazers is just a free diploma. Not only that many of the teachers are not proficient in there subject and are by no means adequate to teach their feild
My children have attended Reynoldsburg City Schools from beginning to end. They have had wondful experiences. They like most of the teachers and one of my son's currently is at the high school. The uniform requirement doesn't bother him in any way. It does look nice to go by the school and see all of the students with a similar standard of clothing. They simply don't look sloppy.The teachers and coaches are wondful people and really care about your children the education they receive and encourage children to better themselves. The compact on respect does hold true in this environment with respect to your children and the teachers.
I just graduated from Reynoldsburg HS and had no problem with the school at all. It was a great place to learn and gain friends along the way. You are always going to have violence and discipline problems at any central ohio school. If you think Reynoldsburg HS is bad spend a day at a Colubus public school and come back and tell us what you think.I will personally miss the atmosphere at RHS. Yes it is way overcrowded but the community has said once before that they do not want a second high school. Until then just watch more modulars take over the staff arking lot. If you are considering Reynoldsburg schools certainly look into them. they give each child attention and strive for a great education
RHS has a difficult time keeping qualified teachers in the building. Reynoldsburg schools should pay attention to keeping successful teachers and programs in the community.
The focus is on public image rather than student learning. I've been disappointed consistently and the teachers show their wear and tear as well.
The teachers are lacking common sense. They are giving out uniforms to try to fix the problems and it's simply not working. I was a freshman last year at Reynoldsburg High School. I have been a straight A student through Reynoldsburg School Systems since I was in first grade. However last year they were more worried about your clothing than our education.
