Half of the teachers were great, the other half had no idea what they were doing. The ones who didn't know what they were doing taught the students nothing, making them ill-prepared in following years (especially in subjects like math where the material builds based on what you learned last).

Mostly white middle class. Some bullying goes on definitely but you can go to guidance counselors, coaches, the GSA, or many other resources if you're being discriminated against. But overall students are accepting and pretty liberal.
The school nurse is really nice, only problem is that she's not always there. Lockdown procedures are efficient and well planned. There is definitely some bullying that goes on but guidance counselors are always there to help you out. Overall, very safe school.
