    Extracurriculars: Cheerleaders ! Are and will always be the best, why? Well because, without cheerleaders, a football team wouldn't be itself. Cheerleaders are supporters, no matter what sport, you need support. And as a cheerleader, I believe we play a very important role in the community of football as well as all other sports. We do not want okay, we want GREAT!

    Teachers: Atlantic High School is one of the best schools I've attended and that is because their main focus is the students. They base everything they do off the students, anything we are in need of they make sure its the BEST for us and not just enough. Academics comes before sports, and that is a major priority to them. If the student are failing, there's no need to play or attend anything but the work they need to get done. Not only does it matter if you do the work but it matters how well you're in-taking the work and lessons that are being giving, it's very important that they know if you understand the work or not, and they will work their hardest to make sure you do.

    Overall Experience: I generally would not attend this school over again if I had the opportunity to because, even though it was not a bad school to attend I just feel like the administrator's didn't really care that we couldn't express are selves in the way that we would have liked to.

    Teachers: Some of the teachers that I've had along the years while I was a student at Atlantic Community High School were very supportive of us students and would push the extra mile to achieve any and everything that we wanted, they would offer us the extra help that we needed to succeed in life, and then there are the teachers that would just do the bare minimum and would not even care to offer any extra help to help us learn more from them.

    Extracurriculars: This school has a lot of extracurricular activity. When it comes to sports our school is the best in the Palm Beach county, we have the best ROTC program. There is After-school activities and also bus are provided, so therefore it's really easy to participate on whatever you might want to do.
