My experience at Atlantic high school was very different from transferring from a big city school to a small country school. Atlantic was good and there was no drama here the teachers were always here to help me with whatever I was going through. Though I miss my old school Atlantic was a good change for me and made me grow as a person and made me who I am today. Through the good and bad Atlantic has always been there for me and showed me that no matter how much I think I am alone and not able to do anything I have people around me that love me and care about me.

Atlantic high school a good school, To Be there to have friends and to learn is a. Fascinating thing Learning at ATL is the most pushing motivating things that you can do the teacher push you to be better duty to push you so you can go to college they help you they give you tools The teacher want you to pass not filled not held back do you want you to pass .
There's such a sports focus not only in the school but the community. We're really good at many fine arts events such as the art fair, speech, debate, band, and choir, yet everybody would rather show up to a football game despite winning only once during a seasin then support their peers in the play or at a concert.
