R.J. Reynolds High School is located in the heart of Forsyth County and has proudly served the community of Winston-Salem since its opening in 1923.
The school fulfilled the need for a new city high school after fire destroyed Winston High School on Cherry Street. The site for the school was made possible through the generosity of Katherine Smith Reynolds Johnston.
The original school building and auditorium have been extensively renovated and because of their architectural significance and continued contribution to public and cultural education, they are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Students at Reynolds High School have a wide range of academic choices, providing a niche for every talent and interest. We strongly believe in the education of the whole child and encourage participation in extracurricular activities.
Among our strengths are a high academic tradition, a diverse student population, strong parental support and an active alumni association.
