    Administration & Policies: The guidance staff were really helpful and seemed to understand the difficulties of being a teenager.

    There is no real "bullying" at CVU, just more of a shunning element, so there is no administrative intervention.

    Teachers: I personally felt like some teachers favorited other students, I felt like I was really cared for that much. But the teachers that did like me, were really great and helped me a lot.

    Extracurriculars: The clubs that I was apart of were well funded and were filled with a bunch of talented, reliable students and the facilitators were always happy to work with the kids.
