    Health & Safety: The school is very safe and further protected by the presence of a Student Resource Officer and a strict anti-bullying policy; however, health classes are not comprehensive and the school nurses are often dismissive.

    Extracurriculars: Students can found their own clubs (granted administrative permission); thus, there is a wealth of different clubs students may join; however, some clubs receive more support from administration than others and none are valued as highly as the sports teams.
