The guidance counselors are fantastic! Art and elective teachers are also great. The problem with the IB program is that it isn't really teaching. Talking, maybe PowerPoints, and lots of great assignments; but, all the work is done on your own, which is why it takes so much time. If you have the time to teach yourself you can shine, otherwise dual enroll and actually get taught. AVID program is excellent. Teachers really care about the whole student!
Review Atlantic High School
Cheerleaders ! Are and will always be the best, why? Well because, without cheerleaders, a football team wouldn't be itself. Cheerleaders are supporters, no matter what sport, you need support. And as a cheerleader, I believe we play a very important role in the community of football as well as all other sports. We do not want okay, we want GREAT!
The food is terrible that's coming from a school. Normally public schools don't give out the most healthiest and tasteful kind of food. Sports though, this school takes it's football team very seriously. For last couple years most of our funding essentially went into the football team, and although we were undefeated for a while things began to turn this year. Also in this school unless your taking college level courses from what i heard you aren't really prepared for college, it's more like you get your just thrown into that world.
