    Administration & Policies: The administrators tend to generalize students and don't take anything on a case by case basis.

    Administration & Policies: The school always change a little with each new principle, however the basics stay the same. The school gives out warning, call home, detention, ISS, OSS, expulsion, and so on. You always have those students that try and try a teacher or someone higher. Even though they know there's nothing they can do. The higher people in the school are very connected and stay in contact if needed.

    Administration & Policies: The principals at the school are alright. The ones that were there in my earlier years fit the role better in my opinion. They seemed to actually care more about the students than the ones that are running the school now. There is only one guidance counselor that is just absolutely amazing. Ms. Owens, is just wonderful and dedicates all of her time to her senior students and whoever else needs someone to be there for them. In my school each grade has a dedicated principal and counselor. I've talked to all of the counselors and principals at the school and Ms. Owens is number one on my list. The best assistant principal, Mr. Digby, that was at the school transferred to another school this year. He invested interest into every student unlike the principals we have now. The bullying in the school is "heavily" enforced but it's really not. I mentor freshman and I have to defend some of them daily because they are constantly being picked on and the office claims they'll handle it but they just give the bullies a little speech of not to do it again and send them on their way. There is no sort of disciplinary action and it's just sad. The dress code has really lightened up this year due to the new principal. The attendance is strict and students need to attend all day of everyday to not be in jeopardy of failing.
