I am a student from Atlantic City High School. I am now a senior here and have been a part of this high school since my freshman year. The school has a great academic program with good teachers to get a student ready for college. The academic programs here are challenging, so the students are always on there toes. The students that go here are from four different cities, which make this school very diverse with all different cultures. The clubs and sports here are unique for all students. The school is very safe, but the food and facilities are not so great. All in all Atlantic City High School is a good high school.

Going to Atlantic City High School was quite the experience. My transition from a wholesome, innocent, middle school -- to a very diverse high school equipped with metal detectors and security guards -- was very interesting but I wouldn't change the way I grew up. I had many amazing experiences which came from getting involved in marching band to performing in Theater Arts, to many more smaller experiences with friends I've accumulated over the years. I would definitely suggest this school to anyone who wants to broaden their horizons.
