Atlantic has both its pros and cons like any school but there is something about Atlantic that makes me proud to be a student here. The students are accepting of others and the SGA works hard to keep everyone included. There is a sense of community and family in Atlantic that makes it sad to think it is my last year. In my experience, teachers work hard to get to know each student and make them feel comfortable cooperating in class without feeling judged or not good enough. In my opinion, the teachers go above and beyond to provide support to the students in the areas in which they need them.
On the latter side, Atlantic does not offer that many food choices to those that are vegan/ vegetarian. Often, the food also lacks flavor. Further, I suggest our school does more to gather up school spirit! Often during spirit week few people participate but if there is a certain 'hype' through decor around the school or events during lunch, students would be more eager to participate.

This school is full of passions and love! Teachers and students are nice and friendly. The school provides a safe environment for learning and offers many fun activities while in school; for example, the pyramid competition, spirit week and the autumn fest. This school provides technical program once you are in 11th grade, which can allow you to learn about the major that you are interested in and can be certified. I really enjoy being in this school and will give me an unforgettable high school year!
This school gave me a chance to explore my academic talents. I started as a regular student then transferred to honors and my last year ended up in advance placement! I would have never pushed myself to my full potential I didn't have an amazing Freshman teacher that constantly pushed me to be better and convinced me to enter the honors program and sure enough it was the best thing I did! Although I didn't participate in any sports and after school activities, lunch period was amazing because my peers and I got along so well and felt safe. Most of my educators were intelligent and humorous which is a plus.
