Principal, Stephen Hinson

Welcome Letter

To Our Shark Family,

I am honored to be your principal next year, and it is with great pleasure and optimism that I welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year. My philosophy is that of Great Expectations. This viewpoint encompasses personal accountability, self-reflection, intrinsic motivation and perseverance; all traits necessary to be a supportive leader to all Atlantic High School’s stakeholders.

Atlantic High School is the "School of Opportunity" where students are our number one priority. Every child is expected to be successful and we are committed to making the atmosphere highly engaging and conducive to learning. Next year at AHS we will continue to offer every student a “world class” high school experience, as we expand the number of academy programs being offered. Furthermore, students will be afforded the options to take advantage of dual enrollment, Advance Placement classes, and several Industry Certifications. The extracurricular programs at Atlantic will continue to provide opportunities for students to challenge themselves beyond the classroom, and in many cases in local and state competitions.

I am looking forward to an exciting and successful school year. “FINS UP”

Educationally yours,



Stephen C. Hinson

Principal, Atlantic High School
