A public school in the Ballantyne area of Charlotte, NC, that opened in the 2006-2007 school year. Most stuck up public school in history. Mascot is the Knights, colours are purple and white...soooo gay.
Most kids are from South Meck or Providence High Schools, J.M. Robinson or South Charlotte Middle Schools, plus a select few from other schools. In its first year, sports teams have sucked.
Everyone oohs and aahs about the $23,000,000 football field, even though the JV and Varsity teams playing on it suck. So it did cost a ton of money to build the school, but the outside looks like a prison. However, the inside is REAL nice.
The teachers treat you like shit and expect you to beat the whole school system on exams so that the principal will have bragging rights that the first year at AK was a success. There is also some electromagnetic boundary that prevents your cell phone from working inside the school. Rumor has it that the Band Room works for your phone.
Dominant style at AK is 'preppy' with brands like Hollister, AE, and Abercrombie popular with most everyone. But there is a bit of some faux-punk, Goth, dELiAs fanatics who think they are non conformist, and people who dont really care about the brand.
Oh yeah, and you arent allowed to get away with anything cause the security guards ride on John Deeres around the campus or they patrol the bathrooms. Assholes.
Most people at AK live in manchines. But some live in normal middle class homes and are 'poor'
PS, the swim team kicks ass.
AK chick: Hey, I go to ardrey kell! I'm a cheerleader, I pretend to hate gossip, I dress in Abercrombie head to toe, I eat a ton, like country music plus all the trendy songs. Oh yeah, and when I wear a dress from AE to school, I am making a fashion statement even though the girl next to me wears awesome dresses every day.
AK dude: Perfect, I'm an HCO jock and I act 'gangsta' even though I live in a $17million house all my life! Never have I set foot in the ghetto or been near a real Crip. let's go out!
AK chick: totally!
hey the football team that plays on that 23,000,000 dollar field got to the second round of playoffs and beat Providence, and South Meck had to forfeit all of their games.
Ardrey kell beat providence.
Prison also referred to as Ardrey cell.
Ardrey Kell administrators watch you like a hawk.
A high school with a smaller population of white students than Providence High School and a higher percentage of free or reduced lunch, yet is still called the richest school. it is also called preppy; however a very large percentage of the school population wears sweats to school every day. Contrary to popular belief, not all of the students live in million dollar mansions. Two country clubs are zoned to attend AK, but both country clubs have normal sized and small houses. The other neighborhoods have normal and small sized houses, and there are a lot of townhomes near by. The school has an expensive football field that everyone made a big deal out of, but didn't make a big deal out of the fact that the new high school in Mint Hill has turf also. Ardrey Kell has an ugly campus, but the inside of the school is nice. Overall, it has a student body in a building that's nice on the inside.
Why can't Ardrey Kell be as nice as Providence?
