    Health & Safety: Most students take part in selling pills, smoking weed and underage drinking. For example, our cheerleaders showed up drunk at a game, but were disciplined. Bullying isn't as common as it is in middle school everyone has their own group and does their own thing. New Braunfels High School is pretty safe we have drug dogs come and we have random drug testing.

    Extracurriculars: Our football team spends a lot of money, but we hardly win games. Tennis went all the way to state! Soccer both girls and boys, and softball all made it to play offs. Everyone comes out and supports our teams rather they are winning or losing. Our FFA judging team and show team has done fair this year many have made sale at major shows such as Houston and San Antonio. The staff of New Braunfels High School cheer on the teams no matter what.

    Overall Experience: You can tell ever since the school went to IPads there is no point in coming to school because there are videos of the teachers teaching instead of teaching in side the classroom so you can do most school work while laying in bed. Some kids say their parents don't care if they show up or not, but overall the parents are pretty active with the kids involved in their athletic kids.

    Teachers: New Braunfels High School took on a huge step and gave every student an IPad and you do all your work on the IPad. Well since we were given an IPad the teachers video themselves teaching and upload it on an app called ITunesU and that's where you learn during the class. The teacher sits at his/her desk and doesn't teach.
