    Health & Safety: My school has taken a lot of safety precautions this year and even installed a new fire alarm at our school. This fire alarm is so worried about our safety that it has gone off at least 20 times. Some days it would even go off two times a day.

    Food: The food options at my school are another things I've watched evolve over the years. When I started in high school, we had a ton of choices however they cut back a lot of those choices. I know why, I had to do a report on the California school foods bill so I know that the fatty foods we once had were going to leave. I mean yeah, we still have a lot of snacks buts its like the whole grain cheese its that have only 10 crackers in them.

    Administration & Policies: My school has undergone a lot of change in my four years of being there. My sophomore year, we got a new principal at our school. He quickly made changes to our schools old policies and instructed teachers to crack the whip so to speak. Suddenly girls were finally being confronted for their much-too-short shots, boys with their "bro tanks." It was actually a relief to have this change. I as a student was growing tired of seeing so much skin so I did not mind the change. This year, the big change has been the tardy policy. When students have a minuet left to get to class, a specific whistle (almost like a train horn) rings letting us know, oh you better run if you plan on making it. If you didn't make it to class in time, they locked you out. Harsh some may be thinking, but all you needed to get into class was a magical yellow pass. Here's the catch, these passes are in the attendance office. By doing this, it cut down on the attendance offices work load, made class start faster, and made kids run like no other to class. If you were locked out three times, detention. Five lead to a Saturday school. Any more than that was an at school suspension. Let me just say, I have seen kids cross my school campus in record breaking time to avoid being locked out. Shoot, I've had my fair share of early morning runs to class.

    Sports & Fitness: At Del Campo, sports are one of the few things we're known for really. Granted, we are not the athletic force we used to be from the stories I've heard but we still kick major butt. Just one step into our "Big Gym" and one could see the winning banners that cover the walls. With such sporting responsibility comes LOUD cheering sections. This rowdy bunch is known as "cougar crew." We have made it to local news stations for being such a loud, supportive section. To not be apart of cougar crew is almost a crime at our school. Each year at the first lunch meeting, they can barely fit everyone into the normal sized classroom. I spent two years on the soccer program during my time at Del Campo and I am very thankful I did. My team became my family, a close group of friends I could always have at school to get by with. I learned a lot about not only my sport, but also myself when playing on this team.

    Health & Safety: Not a lot of bullying goes on. I don't really have to worry about safety.
