Coming into Atlantic High School as a freshman, I was surrounded by many familiar faces which made me feel like at home. Over the years, I have met a lot of great open-minded people whom I will never forget. I have made a lot of connections and friendships, which I will cherish forever. As for academics, I was in the International Baccalaureate program which is a very rigorous corse but I has gotten me ready for college! Over the years, there were good times and bad times, but overall the good outweigh the bad. I would recommend Atlantic High to anyone who wants to experience diversity, an uplifting setting, spirited, and overall well rounded high school!
Review Atlantic High School
Atlantic High School is a great environment for many students to achieve their goals and make new ones in order to become a greater part of the community. Being a transfer student from another country, I was worried that I would not be able to "fit in," however, the staff and students at Atlantic welcomed me warmly and helped me feel comfortable with my new surroundings.
Overall, I believe that this is a great school, academically and socially, for all students!
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!
