It was amazing! I loved every second. They even helped me prepare for my major in college. They have academies, ap classes, dual enrollment etc. All things to help prepare for college. The student activities and sports were very involving. They would also promote every sport and tell all the "Gators" to come to the swamp for a gator showdown. The faculty would come to some of the sports games as well. The principal went to a different city with the cheerleaders and football players and supported us even though we weren't in the school. I find that very amazing.

For the past four years, my teachers have been the most welcoming and kind people. With that being said, the teaching at this school is not great and I would like to see this change. As someone who is highly academically involved, I have taken a variety of AP courses. While the people who teach these courses are generous and warmhearted individuals, their teaching itself suggests that they are only teaching the course for the raise they get if a certain amount of students pass the AP exam. This limits my learning for the reason that whenever a student is genuinely curious about something and asks the teacher for an explanation, the teacher simply states that "it will not be on the AP exam", so we do not need to learn it. Along with this, teachers are extremely lenient when it comes to deadlines. Discipline is rarely seen at school because of this reason, as well as parent involvement.
Island coast high school is a school that screams diversity and acceptance. Whether that's by circumstance or the goodwill of the students, I know not. The school itself is relatively normal, although its classes appear unusually easy compared to that of other schools. The school is also rather strict when it comes to rules. Not that it's a bad thing, just maybe a few changes couldn't hurt. Like the absolutely no cell phones policy, I should't be hounded between classes for having a cell phone out, another change could be a change to the teachers lesson plan, more specifically to the language classes, because they mostly consist of taking notes.
