Atlantic Coast, for me, was a wonderful school. I was part of the AP program, which helped me prepare for college and the teachers were very much invested in my future! I had some issues with the way administration behaved (for example, there was one day I wore running shorts, and instead of politely asking me to go to the office, an administrator grabbed my shirt and pulled me aside to yell at me). This seemed to be an isolated incident as it never happened before, and never happened again. The school spirit is incredible and the clubs available are very diverse!
I loved the school! Everyone is so welcoming and kind especially the teachers. Spirit week was always so fun and the football nights. The school is beautiful, it’s mainly one big courtyard and it usually stays clean. They are pretty lenient with academics but they do for sure help you because they do want you to pass. The students are very diverse and it’s not really “cliques” or “groups”, everyone gets along with each other. It’s easy to find your own set of friends.
