R. J. Reynolds, Winston-Salem’s oldest continuously operating public high school, is an award winning arts magnet school. The program, “Arts for Academics” creates an arts culture on the campus with twenty-two professional performances each year, unique arts classes, and an arts integration approach across the curriculum. Our magnet approach focuses on creativity, innovation, critical thinking, problem solving, communication, and collaboration. We believe our program addresses key areas of concern facing American public high schools and prepares students for life and work in the 21st Century.
