On Administration & Policies: The most well known rule that every student has to follow or else is to never bring a red or blue item or clothing. Since we all know that these are colors related to gangs and the school has prohibited these colors from the dress code to ensure student safety when walking to school or home. When fights break out, the first people involved in stating suspensions are the principal and the probation officer. Then, they decided to give detentions to anyone who was late to class starting on my junior year, and I have to admit, I did a couple of lunch detentions for arriving a minute late to class. That policy was absolutely ridiculous since being late is something that some of us didn't see coming and only being a minute late costed you your lunch time. Finally, the counselors were also very helpful and encouraged me through out high school. Without my counselor, I could have never gone to college or even have gone through high school.

On Administration & Policies: There's a lot of bullying that goes on. It's mainly gang related, it sometimes stems out to being different. Staff usually tries their best when it comes to this but still have a long way to go in dealing with kind of stuff. Dress code and attendance are something they do take very seriously at the school though.

On Administration & Policies: Being that my school resides in one of the worst parts of Salinas, students are forced to face a strict dress code policy to ensure their safety. Besides dress codes there is also somewhat strict policies to prevent ditching and bullying. An attendance requirement for graduation helps reduce the amount of students that ditch while the fear of suspension and trust in adults helps lower the amount of students being bullied. Overall the principal along with the vice principal and other staff members with similar power, are strict to enforce all the applied rules.

On Administration & Policies: My guidance counselor was very understanding and helpful in my education. The counselors were a big part in helping with the graduation ceremony. They are great counselors!

On Administration & Policies: when i was still attending school, the vice principal had his favorites and it was very noticeable. Guidance counselors were not very helpful, i never really saw any bullying but there were some gang conflicts including a shooting in the baseball field my junior year.
