I have attended ATCO High every since 9th grade. This upcoming school year I will be a senior, and experience at ATCO has been amazing. As my high school journey soon comes to an end I can say I've lived the best high school years along with supportive teachers, the most amazing friends, and most importantly the help of others to get me through what needed. The one thing I would change would be time, so I could go back and relive it all.

The population of Atkinson County High School is very low. Although, it works out for the best because we are so much closer to each other. We are more like a family. I would change the honors graduate requirements that are not strict enough this year we are graduating about 100 students and about 40-50 of us will be honors graduates. It takes away the meaning and value of it after while.
Great experience for those who put forth effort. Teachers are integrated in to the community, culturing an environment the mentors and cultivates students. The personal aspect cannot be overstated. However, there are obvious distances between groups in the student body.
