    Overall Experience: Although I did make a few good friends, the competitive nature of the IB program drove a wedge in a lot of potential friendships. In addition, there was a huge divide between the IB students and the non-IB students. The IB students were very elitist and it was awful to witness how they thought they were better than everyone else. I wish there were more integration but it also seems like some of the students who were not in IB didn't care as much, otherwise they would have been in the IB program as well. The school needs to push for everyone to apply for this program and encourage students who don't necessarily have a great educational background to push themselves. The IB program itself was not very diverse because of this. It was mainly white and Asian American students while the rest of the school population was African American. There needs to be something done about the clear racial divide in the programs.

    Overall Experience: Besides some rude students and the freakishly freezing temperatures of some rooms this school is amazing! I'm glad to be an Eagle. Awesome staff and sports. Very diverse. There's absolutely no reason for one to fail a class unless they didnt out in the time and effort.

    Overall Experience: Favorite experience would be the school spirit for the football games. The cheerleaders and football players ensure that the entire student body comes out to support. It's a great feeling.

    I would want to choose this school again for the students and academics. The material given from the teachers allows the students to really put forth effort and a great amount of work.

    Overall Experience: High school can be tough if you are not emotionally prepared for the work load of participating in an academic program.

    Overall Experience: As a senior in the IB program, I often find myself questioning the reason why I joined a school with such a rigorous program, especially after the reoccurring night of frustration, studying, and even crying due to the work overload. However, with the preparation of the highly dedicated IB teachers at Atlantic, I successfully feel fully prepared for what the future throws at me. I know now that the suffers that I am facing now will only serve as my friend throughout college and my future profession.
