My general experience at Atlantic Coast High Has been good, I’ve made connections that I didn’t think I would have made. The sports and coaching have been phenomenal and my teacher shave all treated me respectfully. I can relate to my teachers because they were once in my shoes and they understand the hardships we go through in high school, which isn’t many but it’s still nice to know they care. The administration do their best to keep they’re students safe even if it means making rules that we don’t understand. They custodial staff is nice and the cafeteria workers know that it’s goid to have a relationship with the students. Overall Atlantic Coast is not near perfect but I’m proud to call myself a Stingray!!

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.
