    Health & Safety: Fights rarely happen , and if they do happen it breaks up in a matter of seconds because of the police and administrators. A person will only feel threatened if you show aggression towards someone else.

    Administration & Policies: Dress code became more limited after new principal arrived. Punishment for things like not wearing a school ID and dress code violations became more prominent.
