    Health & Safety: The health and safety policies are great! the health is so great it annoys students because they are so concern about being healthy, its annoying. The safety is great, the doors all are locked so the only way you can get in is if someone lets you or if you go through the front entrance but you still have to buzz in to be allowed in the building. The security is awesome, they are so friendly but also very serious about their job, they don't put up with fighting, bullying,etc. intact they hate it, they hate breaking up fights over petty stuff, but it doesn't happen very often so it's all good.

    Food: The food options are basically the same things everyday unless you decide to wait in line for lunch of the day. The snack are ok, they are kind limited as well with the new law about schools carrying only somewhat healthy foods.

    Administration & Policies: I'm not really that much aware of the administration at my school but our school is very strict on bullying, it's not tolerated and you'll end up suspended from school, dress code is not enforced as much as it should be especially when its towards the end of the year, girls try to come to school with tank tops and inappropriate shorts to school. Attendance is enforced as well because students(especially seniors) don't feel like going to school so they'll come in late or not come in at all, so you only have a certain amount of unexcused days to miss school and if you miss more, you're required to go to court. If you come in tardy more than 7 times its a detention, but the more tardies after that, there's still more consequences.
