    Atlantic Reviews

    Atlantic is a great town to grown up in. Everyone here is very kind and you definitely get the small town feel. My class size is 96 so its ver nice to be able to know everyone in my grade. Atlantic can also have a down side. Sometimes there just isn't enough to do in Atlantic and it can be hard to find stuff to do, so the majority of the time you can drive an hour to Des Moines or to Omaha and find something to do. That is another great thing about Atlantic we are right in the middle so everything is about the same distance away as far as teams in our high school conference and big cities like Des Moines and Omaha.
    Few abandoned properties. Wide range of houses.
    Most everyone is very friendly. Dog park is great.
