Our staff go through training and meetings once a month to prepare for any kind of emergency situation. The school has regular drills in case of a weather emergency. There is bullying at our school but it is very rarely physical. Unfortunately we do not have a school nurse so in case of sickness or injury the student or a present teacher are the only ones to cover the situation. I feel safe in my school because I know that some measures are taken to keep it a safe environment at all times, like locked doors and security cameras, and the teachers are trained to handle almost any situation.

Most of the teachers that are at my school, truly care about the students. They are willing to help students and they always make sure we succeed. They do what they can to ensure we get a good education. My pre-calculus teacher is one of the best teachers at my school. She is an extremely intelligent woman, but her intelligence doesn't get in the way of her teaching. She breaks things down and explains things thoroughly. She also gives real life examples of when we will use the things we learn. Even if we won't actually use logarithms in the real world, she tells us how the problem solving and that use of our brains will. My English teacher treats us as if we are college students. She gives us deadlines, but the rest of it is on our own, If we need help we go to her. I like that because it prepares us for college. Many of the teachers at my school put their students first.
Most Extracurriculars at our school are sport based. Other than that we have FFA, a few fine arts, and about 4 academic clubs. Our sports teams and activities get the most attention. As a small farming community many students are active in FFA. We have a Spanish Honor Society, National Honor Society, and Academic Team, and Student Council. I am active in 3 of the 4 and find that they are all active clubs striving to do good by our school. The Fine Arts tend to get the short end of the stick, but always stick together. We have the same 2 teachers in charge of all music, theatre, and art, so it is a close circle.
