On Health & Safety: Our school became more interested in safety after the multiple bomb threats in a short period of time. Everyday, there would be a police officer during lunch and the nurses office was usually available.

On Administration & Policies: The dress code was hardly ever enforced and many students wore inappropriate clothing. My guidance counselor was not helpful and encouraged me to take classes that I did not need. During my high school career, many policies changed. For example during the sophomore year, it became required to use a hall pass to go to the restroom.
