    Overall Experience: My overall experience at Atlantic has been good. I just feel that better choices are need to be made in regrades to how things are done. For example a safer way to have fun in a pep rally and more focus on other sports not just solely on football.

    Teachers: The teachers should take more time to explain to the student the lesson. More than one time I have had to look for resources other than the textbooks. Some teachers do not use the textbooks and make the students feel unprepared. As a student i also disagree with the way the teachers teach the students.

    Extracurriculars: Its great but they need to be more motivated.
