On Health & Safety: We were a pretty good school when it came to this sort of thing. If people were gonna fight, they waited until school was over and did it off campus.

On Academics: If you decide to take Honors of AP courses, be prepared to work. It's great practice for college though.

On Administration & Policies: The dress code policy was a joke. You only ever got dress-choose violated if you were a female. Guys could wear insulting or offensive shirts worn spams on them but if you were wearing shorts that looked too short, even if they were still within the guidelines for length, you would get a dress code violation.
