    Health & Safety: Students all seem to be pretty safe and secure at any one time. The securities seem to handle their duty pretty well. There is however moderate marijuana and alcohol use, but its nothing outside of the normal high school range.

    Food: Even though i myself don't eat the school lunch i hear a lot of people argue about it. Its usually really dry and looks like its been under heat lamps for hours.

    Administration & Policies: I'm not really sure how good the disciplinary policies are at my school since I've never been in trouble. It seems as though people usually follow the rules though.
