Student achievement in reading, math, and science is the focus of the Atlantic Community Schools. Student learning is reinforced by state of the art technology. Staff members collaborate with parents and community members to create a positive learning climate where all students feel safe and connected to school.
Achievement in reading, math and science sets the stage for future learning. Many resources have been committed to continue progress towards high achievement in the core areas and to increase proficiency levels for struggling students. Test results show that the majority of Atlantic students are proficient in reading, math, and science, but we can do better. Our Iowa percentile ranks show that our students perform as other Iowa students and score in the average ranges for their Iowa classmates.
During the 2003-2004 school year, voters in our district passed both an Instructional Support Levy and a School Infrastructure Local Option tax. This has provided excellent support for instructional materials, programs for high risk students, and for professional development. Great teachers are the key to increasing student achievement. The best teachers continually improve their strategies and their own skills to help students reach their full scholastic potential.
In Atlantic teachers and support staff strive to increase the achievement of all learners, from the talented and gifted to those with special learning needs, from preschool learners to adults who teach their peers new learning strategies. Atlantic students will continue to leave high school well prepared to face challenging futures.
