Our school principal is great really puts himself out there with the students. There is a lot of drama as most high schools have. There is some bullying but it usually consists of people in the same friend group. Social media has a great impact on hurting others. The classes that are offered at the school vary so much that students are able to try so many different things. The athletic department has great influence on students and encourages all to join. In my past experiences, the teachers really want you to succeed and will help the student succeed if they see they are struggling. For example, I was struggling with Chemistry and I needed another science class to graduate and my teacher had set me up in another class that our school offers and get the science credit it that way. In all, it was my decision to stay and struggle and work harder or go in the other class. There are so many art classes and electives that if you do one year, you are able to continue to the next level. Our school provided the students with laptop which made things easier for the students and if the student was absent from school, it was easy access to what was missed.

There is some bullying that happens in the school but it is more people who are in the same friend groups. Social media does not help with the bullying. We do have a full time cop at our school who interacts with the students frequently in a friendly manner. The cop also gives the health class talks about some drugs to help educate the students. Overall, our school is pretty safe. I think the students put themselves in danger more when going to certain parties or getting involved with certian people.

There is a ridiculous number of sports teams, and for the most part there is good fan support for the big sports (football, basketball, lacrosse). Though some smaller teams—like volleyball or field hockey—don't get the same respect when it comes to gym/field time and equipment. Also, our records for most teams have high winning percentages, and it's what makes us the best!
