    Health & Safety: They take precautions very seriously when it comes to suspicious people at my school, but one time my friend was racial profiled because he 'looked' suspicious when he left class to go call his mom. This not only caused a minor lock down, but it was really degrading to that student.

    Extracurriculars: There will be many cool new clubs formed but often won't get enough funding or teachers to help supervise it. We lose many great clubs due to those factors, I wanted to join many clubs in freshman and sophomore year but many of the clubs we low funded and cut.
