    "My daughter is a Freshman at AHS. She absolutely love it here and say her teachers are the best she has ever had. There is a strong sense of comrodery amoungst this diverse group of kids and they truly care for each other. She has never seen bullying, is academically challenged (she takes honors level classes) and really appreaciates how hard the faculty and staff work to accomodate each kid's needs. As a parent, I can't help but think what this (and other NC) schools could do if there hadn't budget cuts by the governor and legislature."

    "I'm sorry but I gotta give this a lower rating just because my time there wasn't all that great. Of course, There were some students that went there and had the time of there life, couldn't be happier. It's just that some of those students aren't the best kids in the whole world. What I mean was there was a lot of bullying. Mostly these were kids from I'd say the ghetto, and it just seemed like they had nothing better to do than tease other kids for no good reason. And the reason why there are so many police officers there is just because of the amount of fights that go on there. By the time I left, there was a cop around every corner because a fight happened pretty much everyday. The only reason I'm rating it as high as two stars is because everything else about it is amazon. The faculty, education, and programs they had were pretty awesome."

    "I absolutely agree with the review below, Asheville High is the best combination of diversity and quality I have ever experienced. It's a microcosm offering students a taste of the real world, those who have and those who have not; but with educational choices including AP offerings that beat the regions top private schools, Mandarin Chinese with a journey to Beijing and Shanghai. Yet kids who are going straight into the workforce have amazing opportunities as well through connections with the local hospital and 2 year college. As a parent of a sophomore, I could not be happier. Asheville High is an American treasure!"

    "The point to remember when looking at the ratings, is that some schools are simply more diverse than others. Asheville High is one of those schools. They track your kids, meaning, if you have a super bright kid, they will be in classes with other bright kids. If your kid has special needs, they will be in a class with other special needs classes. If your child is gifted and scholarly, very college minded, this is the place for you. Lots of AP classes. If your child is handy and wants a trade background with no plans for college, this is the place for you. Great training and preparation. I sent three kids here. One was bookish and went to the Ivy League, one was a jock and went on to Carolina, one wasn't academic, but went to a cooking school and is happy owning her own cafe. They were each well-served by this gorgeous diverse school. The reason the scores are lower (it's ranked a 4) is because ALL types of kids go here. It's not a warehouse for rich kids, or poor kids, like other high schools in the county. ALL types of kids attend here. They end up getting together in the extra curricular areas. Racial diverse, just terrific. It's what public school should be, the great equalizer."
