    "I love School of Inquiry & Life Sciences or Silsa because It is a great way to earn easy honors credits and also its small so its easier to stay focused. The teachers a great at what they do a great at understanding and work around their students needs. The teachers help you stay motivated when it gets hard and they push you to your full potential."

    "This school is so wonderful! It teaches me everything I need to know and it prepares me for college. I absolutely adore this school. Just like all schools, there are bad things about it, but there are not many. Just this year I have gotten a great education and I can't wait to continue my high school life at this school."

    "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."

    "There have been benefits to the school being a smaller public high school, such as I can easily ask a teacher a question outside of class. Socially, it is a little small and restrictive."
