I loved attending Atlantic Coast High School! The diversity, abundance of clubs and activities, and supportive teachers made my high-school experience worthwhile and extremely memorable. Even though I moved from another state, I can honestly say if I could go back in time to stay in my home state or move to Jacksonville, I wouldn't hesitate to move toward ACHS.

Atlantic Coast has made a tremendous impact on my life. Before my senior year, I moved from GA to FL and I was very unsure of how to go about my senior year. Leaving my friends, peers, teachers, and the school I had grown accustomed to scared me. What scared me even more was coming into a new school my senior year. I didn't know how to be a new kid, if there even is a handbook on that. I rolled onto campus my first day of senior year not knowing what to expect. The campus was huge and the facilities were above my expectations. I met the most amazing group of friends and made incredible bonds with teachers. The counselors accommodated to everyone's needs in a timely manner, the school was always clean, there were always gardening projects going on to better our look, and many activities and clubs to join. I even founded my own chapter of Model UN at the school. The involvement from the student body is unbelievable and I am proud to say I truly enjoyed my senior year at AC.
Throughout my entire High School career at ACHS I have been supplied the tools for success. In the advanced placement program I do not believe I have had any teacher lack concern for my personal development. There were times i felt confused on my work, felt unhappy and times I felt giving up as a whole and my teachers were willing to always push me higher. I owe my greatest gratitude to my counselor Mrs. Rennert I will not graduate without her when she tells me she has faith in me I began to have faith in myself again. Atlantic Coast means a new chance to me. There were time I had not taken my academic career as serious as I should have been when I'm on campus it feels like and I will use my career and times here to shape myself into a well rounded global citizen. Attending AC has taught me to caring for others is more important than my own wants and for this I rate this wonderful institution 5 stars.
