    Health & Safety: I feel very secured and protected in this school. The reason I chose okay is because the nurse is not very helpful. There is plenty of security cameras all around the school and there is also many securities. The police is constantly in the school so is impossible not to feel secured. In the health office there is not much help.

    Extracurriculars: Fohi is an AVID Demo school and this club has over 500 members. It has a great number of clubs and organizations like peer leader, stars club, ASB club, gay and lesbian club, and many others. It also has a CSF club in which the students are very likely to obtain scholarships.

    Teachers: At Fontana High the staff is very involved with the students. From the four years I have been there, I have never had a singe complain about teachers. There is always equality among the students and there is also no way for a student to fail because there is tutoring everyday after school at the library or their classrooms. The teachers at Fontana High provide their students with the privilege of retaking assessments. I also noticed that their classrooms are adequate decorated with posters related to the subject.
