The style is unique to every different teacher so learn how to adapt to different teaching methods quickly. They know their stuff and communicate well with whoever wants to communicate.

On Health & Safety: The school does everything in its power, but kids nowadays have access one way or another to almost anything, and their really isn't a way to stop a kid from doing what they want. Just give the kid a happy life and pray they don't look the that direction.

On Overall Experience: Some students owe a lot to their parents due to the fact that they are their back bone in their education. They would be almost nowhere without their parents guidance and help. Others might want to start considering letting their parent into their lives. But they will learn what happens when you lock your parent out.

On Administration & Policies: Rules are definitely enforced. Any student that needs punishment will get the appropriate action. counseling is usually required afterwards, and any preventive action is enforced for future reference.
