The Alumni website is currently being reformatted.

Please check back in August for updates.

Welcome to WWW.RJRalumni.org

THE website for RJ Reynolds High School Alumni and Friends!

You are at the right place to learn about what great things are happening at RJR, as well as information on the Class reunions (we have been informed of), and of the various initiatives of your RJ Reynolds High School Alumni and Friends organization and the RJR Staff.  Also, we offer links to on-line videos of recorded school performances staged at Reynolds Auditorium (such as concerts performed by RJR's Band, Orchestra and the Choirs, the two schools plays, and The Follies).

Reynolds High School became an Arts Magnet school in 2007.  Since then...

  • Graduation rates have increased from 63% in 2007 to 87.4% in 2019 (and it should be noted that the State changed the way graduation rates are reported.  RJR's graduation rate is above the district and state average).

  • College attendance rates have increased from 74% in 2008 to 87% in 2019!

  • Dropout rates have decreased from 7.3% in 2008 to 1.96% in 2018!

  • Scholarships have increased from $8.5 million is 2009 to $11 million in 2019!

The words today are the same as in 1949 when they were first written:

Amid the pines she proudly stands!

The RJR Alumni organization has two on-going initiatives:  1) to raise the needed funds to award two $1,000 scholarships every year to deserving seniors   2) to raise the needed funds to award $1,000 every year to the staff person (selected by a vote of their peers) as the Teacher of the Year. 

Visit the RJR Alumni Initiatives page to learn more about them and how to make a donation supporting them.
