On Student Culture & Diversity: There are whites, blacks, asians, and latinos at NBHS. People were pretty accepting of the differences of cultures. There was never fight, from my understanding because of racial differences.

On Health & Safety: A lot of fights tend to happen at New Bern High School and the SRO don't seem to do much about it. This creates a not-so-safe environment.

On Administration & Policies: Administration is pretty strict on dress code and with the bullying policy. But with the amount of kids trying to prevent fights is almost impossible.

On Teachers: Many of the teachers act like they do not care. I have had some teachers that do go above and beyond. I must say that the student populations is one reason why the teachers are the way they are.

On Health & Safety: Sanitary wise this school gets and F. For the most part the safety factor is pretty up there. All of the doors remain locked while school is in secession. The school nurse, all she did was give you a peppermint and tell you to leave. Also there is always two resources officers on the premises at all times.
