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!

The food is terrible that's coming from a school. Normally public schools don't give out the most healthiest and tasteful kind of food. Sports though, this school takes it's football team very seriously. For last couple years most of our funding essentially went into the football team, and although we were undefeated for a while things began to turn this year. Also in this school unless your taking college level courses from what i heard you aren't really prepared for college, it's more like you get your just thrown into that world.

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.
