    Overall Experience: Atlantic High School was a AWESOME school to attend

    Overall Experience: Im in the IB program at my school so there is a very noticeable divide between IB students and non-IB students. One way to fix that could be to encourage IB students to take more classes where non-IB students are also able to attend. Overall the school has quite a few areas in need of slight improvement but it really is a quality school.

    Overall Experience: the school has given me many chances to interact with people all around the world. At the same time, being in the IB, most of the students not in the program don't like us and treat us in a rude manor and we feel bad for doing nothing wrong, but nothing is done to stop it. That and rudeness overall, but many people have amazing personalities too.
