Overall our administration does the best they can to keep the school running smoothly daily;however, our office staff and principal are not on the same page about dress code. While the office staff says there are certain dress code policies to follow, they tend to be biased. Not all students are called to the office for inappropriate clothes. Our principal will usually send anyone he sees not following dress code home, but the office usually decides who they will send home. Our guidance counselor is new and she does her best; however, she is not as knowledgeable as our last one.

The staff here is excellent in helping out but I've had some bad experiences here with the principle. We had a family crisis at the moment and instead of trying to help us he exacerbated the situation and made everything ten times worse. After this incident, he decided to make a speech that was directed at me: it was about my parents not running 'interference for me.' This was essentially his way of getting back at me and ever since he has held a grudge. We have a new guidance counselor this year, so we'll have to see how that works out. Policies on bullying and the like aren't really relevant because I haven't heard any complaining. Although a couple years ago, they did try to do a "bully hotline" where you could call in anonymously and report bullying. The problem with this is the bullies would call in on their victims, defeating the purpose and giving them a new channel for bullying.

Our school makes sure that every student becomes involved with sports one way or another. For example, our entire school attends pep rallies and dresses up in certain themes to show spirit. My school just recently got new athletic facilities that are by far the best in the district. If a student is not in athletics, they are required to take PE, so everyone partakes in physical education. For any sport event, the community comes together to cheer on the players. Most players are very competitive and driven by coaches constant encouragement.
