    "Coming out of Asheville Middle, people will try to convince you left and right to not go to SILSA for one reason or another. Don't listen to a word they say. The teachers are fantastic and the classes are rigorous, but fun."

    "The classes that I have enjoyed the most, learned the most from, and had the bet experiences in were not at Silsa but at Asheville high. The reason I attended Silsa was because ab scheduling worked better with my schedule and managing school work. However, this scheduling may be changing, in which case I would not say attending it would be worth it."

    "I like being a student at SILSA. It's a small school, but I enjoy it because the smaller classes allow for you to be recognized more by the teacher. Another thing that I like is how SILSA is inside of Asheville High, so you're always meeting new people through your electives or extracurriculars. The athletic program here is great! I'm a cross-country runner but I can say that Asheville High offers a variety of sports and SILSA students are allowed to participate in all of them. The kids at SILSA have gained a reputation for being competitive, which is mostly true, but I find that it only motivates me to strive academically as well. If I had the choice to do it all over again, I would choose SILSA because of the teachers and how encouraging they are."
