Atlantic City High School provides the best education. It has academic, honors, and advanced placement classes. If students take all advanced placement classes and received A's, they will have a high chance of getting into an Ivy League school. This school provides numerous amount of extracurricular activities after school to get students to be involved with programs outside of school. There are lots of clubs and sports for students to join. The amount of diversity in the school is amazing because students can meet people from around the world. They can learn what their traditions are, what they eat every day, and most importantly their culture. One thing I dislike about Atlantic City High School is that some students do not even know their manners. The students will even start a fight because they can not control themselves. A possible solution is to create a program to let students know the consequences of the fighting.

My experience at Atlantic City High School is average. What I like most about my school is the diversity. Everyday coming to school meant seeing new faces and learning about other cultures, customs, etc. In addition, our athletic teams are a great way to better yourself as a student-athlete while developing team-work and leadership capabilities. The environment at Atlantic City High School is very welcoming. Furthermore, there are various ways to step out of ones comfort zone and make friendships. My teachers were motivated and ready to rock and roll with their lesson plans. In conclusion, Atlantic City High School is an average high school with lots of opportunities.
At Atlantic City High School we had a very diverse group of students. We students from about 6 different cities which really let us get to know people from all over South Jersey. I loved that our school was really well rounded with academics, arts, and sports. This made our opportunities as students to choose what we wanted to get into better because everything at our high school excelled. The teachers at Atlantic City High School are very engaging and really take the time to help us through our journey through high school. Most of my teachers really helped me get through my tough advanced placements classes by staying with me after school to go through the material with me. Not only are the teachers great, the coaches for our sports teams were great too. My basketball and tennis coaches really helped me be the best student athlete I could be. They taught me to not just focus solely on athletics because doing good in both academics and athletics would help get into college.
