    Food: In an attempt to have healthy food, foods have been changed to options with no flavor or flavor that is so terrible who would want to eat it? Healthy means nasty I guess. We'll all lose weight because we just won't eat!

    Administration & Policies: There could be more surveillance in a class when a parent calls to say that their child is being bullied but they won't say who it is but they have been told what class it is going on in.

    Sports & Fitness: Lots of team spirit for those who are actually involved in sports. Not so much spirit from those not involved in those outside sports/activities.

    Teachers: some were not open to being told that they weren't the person that was helping me catch on to what I needed to know to be successful in their class and help me to move or get someone else to help me.
