Our school if very small and very remote. We were about 5 miles away from the nearest fire station, and a half hour away from the nearest small medical clinic. Because the school was so small, large scale security wasn't and still isn't necessary. Most of the teachers can name each individual student by first and last name as well as most of the students. We had no need for high security but many of the teachers were trained to deal with some violence, medical issues, and children with special needs.

As an elementary school some of these facilities aren't necessary. We have a fantastic gym for the kids but most of the equipment isn't supplied by the school, the teachers or others donate them so that the students may have things to play with. The school has a beautiful field to play in and is used for soccer, baseball, football, tag, and many other things. We have indoor and out door basket ball hoops which are often used, and a large playground for the students.
It is a small conservative town. There was very little diversity when I was there and still isn't much 10 years later. There can be lots of stereotypes, racist pressures, bullying, and acceptance challenges. No one is born racist but many of the kids families enable the ideas of stereotyping. Being of color I understand how hard it is to be a minority, but the school does very well at trying to educate these kids about culture and diversity.
