It is an amazing school for opportunity and equality. The clubs could be more involved and structurally significant, but overall everything at Atlantic High is opportunity oriented and friendly. The education has great structure to it, and I am flying through my college classes now because of what I learned in high school. Atlantic High is parterned with Daytona State College, as well as Embry Riddle Aeronautical University (my future college). The high school is able to offer both classes from Daytona State and Embry Riddle (both of which I took in high school). I have several credits towards Embry Riddle already.

My experience at Atlantic High was neither pleasing or horrible. It was an average school that I went to because I prioritized my education rather in social circles or extracurricular activities. The class system was not that engaging, but the curriculum did provide excellent learning material for that particular subject. The students were very diverse, and I did make a few close acquaintances during the school year. In my opinion, I think that they should improve their facilities as the buildings are loosing their luster. I also think that they should connect with the students more and build a relationship with them while learning and teaching them during the school year.
Overall, Atlantic High School is good. Compared to Creek, Atlantic's student population is quite small. So walking down the hall isn't a train wreck, student /teacher relations are good, etc.. Every school has its negatives. In Atlantic's case, bathrooms aren't kept in perfect shape and safety isn't 100% ensured, but hey. Our campus is entirely outside, good on sunny/cool days, yet a bit rough on rainy/ hot days. Amongst my years at Atlantic, the school's repetation has increased from past years. We have been successful at things we weren't before. The band has nearly tripled in size and sounds good; other clubs and sports have done quite well also. The teachers overall are quite nice too, and know what they are doing when it comes to their subjects.
