I think Atlantic City High School is doing a very exrodinary job at keeping up with the times. The school has technology in place that will keep the students attention. It is important that every student is kept busy. An idol mind is a waste of time. I like that the text books are available online, and students can listen on an Ipod. That was a clever idea. Not much lugging of heavy books.
It's nice to see the classrooms are set up with dual teachers to help with those students that require special attention.
