    Health & Safety: Barrington is not a very threatening area. It's neighbor, East Providence is a bit more sketchy.

    Extracurriculars: Tree's lots f diversity in interests. There's too many sports to count. The art and music department are popular. But the woodshop and writing departments really need more funding.

    Health & Safety: Bullying was an issue for kids mostly in middle school. Once high school started it was very rare from what I noticed. Many teachers will put an end to anything that could be interpreted as bullying if they witness it or someone informs them that it is occurring.
